Official TinyMCE Angular Component


This package is a thin wrapper around TinyMCE to make it easier to use in an Angular application. If you need detailed documentation on TinyMCE itself head to the TinyMCE Documentation. For some quick demos, check out the storybook.


This package is for Angular 5+. For Angular 4, use @tinymce/tinymce-angular-legacy

$ npm install @tinymce/tinymce-angular


Loading the component

Import the EditorModule from the npm package like this:

import { EditorModule } from '@tinymce/tinymce-angular';

And add it to your application module:

// This might look different depending on how you have set up your app
// but the important part is the imports array
  declarations: [
  imports: [
    EditorModule // <- Important part
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]

Using the component in your templates

Use the editor in your templates like this:

<editor apiKey="test" [init]="{plugins: 'link'}"></editor>

Configuring the editor

The editor accepts the following inputs:

  • disabled: Using this input that takes a boolean value you can dynamically set the editor into a "disabled" readonly mode or into the normal editable mode.
  • id: An id for the editor so you can later grab the instance by using the tinymce.get('ID') method on tinymce, defaults to an automatically generated uuid.
  • init: Object sent to the tinymce.init method used to initialize the editor.
  • initialValue: Initial value that the editor will be initialized with.
  • inline: Shorthand for setting that the editor should be inline, <editor [inline]="true"></editor> is the same as setting {inline: true} in the init.
  • tagName: Only used if the editor is inline, decides what element to initialize the editor on, defaults to div.
  • plugins: Shorthand for setting what plugins you want to use, <editor plugins="foo bar"></editor> is the same as setting {plugins: 'foo bar'} in the init.
  • toolbar: Shorthand for setting what toolbar items you want to show, <editor toolbar="foo bar"></editor> is the same as setting {toolbar: 'foo bar'} in the init.
  • apiKey: Api key for TinyMCE cloud, more info below.
  • cloudChannel: Cloud channel for TinyMCE Cloud, more info below.

None of the configuration inputs are required for the editor to work - other than if you are using TinyMCE Cloud you will have to specify the apiKey to get rid of the This domain is not registered... warning message.


You can also use the ngModel directive (more info in the Angular documentation) on the editor to simplify using it in a form:

<editor [(ngModel)]="dataModel"></editor>

Using with reactive forms

The component also works with reactive forms (see Angular documentation)).

For example it can be used with the formControlName directive like this, placed inside a formGroup:

<editor [formControlName]="schema.key" [init]="{plugins: 'link'}></editor>

Event binding

You can also bind editor events via a shorthand prop on the editor, for example:

<editor (onSelectionChange)="handleEvent($event)"></editor>

Where the handler gets called with an object containing the properties event, which is the event object, and editor, which is a reference to the editor.

Here is a full list of the events available:

<summary>All available events</summary>
  • onActivate
  • onAddUndo
  • onBeforeAddUndo
  • onBeforeExecCommand

Loading TinyMCE

Auto-loading from TinyMCE Cloud

The Editor component needs TinyMCE to be globally available to work, but to make it as easy as possible it will automatically load TinyMCE Cloud if it can't find TinyMCE available when the component has mounted. To get rid of the This domain is not registered... warning, sign up for the cloud and enter the api key like this:

<editor apiKey="test" [init]="{/* your settings */}"></editor>

You can also define what cloud channel you want to use, for more info on the different versions see the documentation.

Loading TinyMCE by yourself

To opt out of using TinyMCE cloud you have to make TinyMCE globally available yourself. This can be done either by hosting the tinymce.min.js file by youself and adding a script tag to you HTML or, if you are using a module loader, installing TinyMCE with npm. For info on how to get TinyMCE working with module loaders check out this page in the documentation.

Following step by step guide outlines the process of loading TinyMCE and TinyMCE-Angular in your project managed by the Angular CLI.

  • Install TinyMCE using NPM
    • npm install --save tinymce
  • In your angular.json add tinymce to the global scripts tag.
    • Your script list might look like the following:
    "scripts": [
  • Add tinymce skins, themes and plugins to the assets property of your angular.json. This will allow Tiny to lazy-load everything it requires on initialization.
    "assets": [
      { "glob": "**/*", "input": "node_modules/tinymce/skins", "output": "/tinymce/skins/" },
      { "glob": "**/*", "input": "node_modules/tinymce/themes", "output": "/tinymce/themes/" },
      { "glob": "**/*", "input": "node_modules/tinymce/plugins", "output": "/tinymce/plugins/" }
  • Finally, configure the editor. If necessary, set the base_url and suffix options.
    <editor [init]="{
      base_url: '/tinymce', // Root for resources
      suffix: '.min',       // Suffix to use when loading resources
      plugins: 'lists advlist',
      toolbar: 'undo redo | bold italic | bullist numlist outdent indent'
