CKEditor (Beta) for Craft CMS

This plugin adds a “CKEditor” field type to Craft CMS, which provides a rich text editor powered by CKEditor 5 (Developer Preview v0.11.0).


This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0-RC15 or later.


You can install this plugin from the Plugin Store or with Composer.

From the Plugin Store

Go to the Plugin Store in your project’s Control Panel and search for “CKEditor”. Then click on the “Install” button in its modal window.

With Composer

Open your terminal and run the following commands:

# go to the project directory
cd /path/to/my-project.test

# tell Composer to load the plugin
composer require craftcms/ckeditor

# tell Craft to install the plugin
./craft install/plugin ckeditor


HTML Purifier Configs

You can create custom HTML Purifier configs that will be available to your CKEditor fields. They should be created as JSON files in your config/htmlpurifier/ folder.

See the HTML Purifier documentation for a list of available config options.


You can track our progress toward the 1.0 GA release from the 1.0 project.
