Draftail aims for a mouse-free, keyboard-centric experience. Here are important features worth highlighting:

  • Support for keyboard shortcuts. Lots of them!
  • Paste from Word. Or any other editor. It just works.
  • Autolists – start a line with - , * , 1. to create a list item.
  • Shortcuts for heading levels ##, code blocks ```, text formats **, and more.
  • Undo / redo – until the end of times.
  • Common text types: headings, paragraphs, quotes, lists.
  • Common text styles: Bold, italic, and many more.
  • API to build custom controls for links, images, and more.
  • Compatibility with the draft-js-plugins ecosystem to build more advanced extensions.

This project adheres to Semantic Versioning, and measures performance and code coverage. We also try to follow accessibility best practices (tested with aXe) – please get in touch if you can help us do better in this area.
