Does anybody here know a good & easy-to-use WYSIWYG HTML editor package for React?

(specifically for integrating it into a frontend for users)

Tried a few throughout the day but none of them really scream ‘hey, I am easy to use and won’t overwhelm people’. The closest I came was Dante3 (https://github.com/michelson/Dante) but with non-existent documentation I am stuck

But seriously, I think the reason there are so many options is that no one has built a decent one.

Yeah, best docs in the universe

But yeah, I also got the same feeling. Too many options, none of which is great. Might just start with a compromise and adapt later on

We started using https://editorjs.io/ at my day job and I like it.

The only gotcha is that the content is saved in JSON, and then you have to write some functions in the backend to convert JSON structure to HTML. Or vice versa if the data comes to the field from APIs.

Although I am not sure how it plays with ReactJS

WBE User What’s your usecase?

I can help with choosing. I spend almost 3 days picking right editor for TweetAudience 😊

Aidas Bendoraitis this looks really awesome, just had a quick look at it! There’s an unofficial React component for it, but even if that turns out not to work, it should be fair simple to implement, given that it’s mostly JS. Thank you!

WBE User its for a simple email editor (no fancy html layouts or css, just standard stuff like bold text, image upload, etc.)

Look at this. https://plate.udecode.io/ It’s production ready solution. It’s based on Slate, which is something like Rich Text Editor Builder. Plate is nice editor with plugins, which you can combine as you like. They have nice interactive docs to try all features.

Wow, this also looks awesome! Thank you WBE User 😊 I guess I have to go through both of the suggestions tomorrow to see what makes more sense for my use case :blush:
