PHP Quill Renderer

Render quill insert deltas to HTML and soon Markdown.


Quill deltas renderer, converts deltas to HTML, the Quill attributes supported are listed in a table below. I'm working on support for the remaining attributes and additional parsers (markdown etc.)

PHP 5.6

Use version 1.01.1 if you need PHP 5.6 support.


The easiest way to use the renderer is with composer. composer require deanblackborough/php-quill-renderer, alternatively include the classes in src/ in your library.


try {
    $quill = new \DBlackborough\Quill\Render($deltas, 'HTML');
    echo $quill->render();
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();

Usage, direct, parse and then render

$parser = new \DBlackborough\Quill\Parser\Html();

$renderer = new \DBlackborough\Quill\Renderer\Html($parser->content());
echo $renderer->render();

Image support

The image support is rudimentary; it isn't production ready, some work needs to be done to support images. I can think of two solutions, pre-save of deltas, post the base64 and return a URI to replace the base64, or, at render time, fetch/cache an image/URI by posting the base64, later down the line I may explore one of these options.


I'm using this package within Dlayer, my app has its own image handling and I will not be exposing the image functionality of Quill.
