This library provides Angular support for EditorJS via a directive, component and service.

You can see a demo in action or download it on GitHub to see how it was implemented.

For changes see the CHANGELOG

Installing and usage

Install the library via npm along with the plugins module and EditorJS module. For each plugin you want to use you also need to install it's dependency - see the Plugin Docs for more information.

> npm install @tinynodes/ngx-editorjs @tinynodes/ngx-editorjs-plugins @editorjs/editorjs @editorjs/paragraph....

Once installed, include the NgxEditorJSModule module in your project with the forRoot method. The forRoot takes an optional configuration.

You also need to pass a provider for UserPlugins with a factory function that returns an options map tools to provide to the EditorJS instance. An example of this is shows in the demo application

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgxEditorJSModule } from '@tinynodes/ngx-editorjs';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import EditorJS from '@editorjs/editorjs';
import {
} from '@tinynodes/ngx-editorjs-plugins';

export function createTools() {
  return {
    paragraph: new PluginParagraph(),
    header: new PluginHeader(),
    list: new PluginList()

  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [
      editorjs: {
        autofocus: false,
        holder: 'editor',
        initialBlock: 'paragraph',
        data: {
          version: EditorJS.version,
          blocks: []
  providers: [
      provide: UserPlugins,
      useFactory: createTools
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {}


EditorJS Config

The configuration is deigned to be extendable in the future, so each potential feature has a key. For configuring EditorJS pass the options below into a editorjs key in the config.

The module configuration allows EditorJS to be provided with a set of options for use. See the EditorJS docs for more details.

Configuration Key Description
autofocus Sets the EditorJS instance to autofocus on load
data Initial data to load into the editor, this is an OutputData object from EditorJS
hideToolbar Hides the toolbar by default
holder The element ID of the holder, this will set all instances in this module to use this as a default
initialBlock The default block type to use in the editor
minHeight Height of Editor's bottom area that allows to set focus on the last Block
placeholder Placeholder of the first block
sanitizer Content sanitizer configurations

What's in the library


This is the main directive which can be used on any element with the [ngxEditorJS]. It has one input which is blocks and this takes an array of EditorJS blocks.


This component can be used in any Angular component using the <ngx-editorjs> tag. Again this component can take a set of blocks, it also provides a holder input for overriding the ID.


This service provides handling the life-cycle of the EditorJS instance, and exposes the underlying EditorJS instance.API - in future releases more of the API will be exposed via service methods to make controlling the container easier.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
