What does it mean «block-styled editor»

Workspace in classic editors is made of a single contenteditable element, used to create different HTML markups. Editor workspace consists of separate Blocks: paragraphs, headings, images, lists, quotes, etc. Each of them is an independent contenteditable element (or more complex structure) provided by Plugin and united by Editor's Core.

There are dozens of ready-to-use Blocks and the simple API for creation any Block you need. For example, you can implement Blocks for Tweets, Instagram posts, surveys and polls, CTA-buttons and even games.

What does it mean clean data output

Classic WYSIWYG-editors produce raw HTML-markup with both content data and content appearance. On the contrary, Editor.js outputs JSON object with data of each Block.

Given data can be used as you want: render with HTML for Web clients, render natively for mobile apps, create markup for Facebook Instant Articles or Google AMP, generate an audio version and so on.

How to render HTML from Editor JSON

To implement Editor to your Model, you must prepare a column in a database that is set to text.

  1. Create a column with type text at your Model table, or use an already existing one.
  2. Add 'ReaZzon.Editor.Behaviors.ConvertToHtml' to $implement attribute of your model.
  3. Add getHtmlAttribute() method and paste line of code as in the example below:
return $this->convertJsonToHtml($this->YourColumnName);
  1. Render your field {{ model.YourColumnName_html|raw }}
  2. Add editor styles to your page by <link href="/plugins/reazzon/editor/assets/css/editorjs.css" rel="stylesheet">

Example of model:

// ...
class Post extends Model
{

    // ...

    public $implement = [
        'ReaZzon.Editor.Behaviors.ConvertToHtml'
    ];

    // ...

    public function getContentHtmlAttribute()
    {
        return $this->convertJsonToHtml($this->content);
    }
}

Example of rendering:

{{ post.content_html|raw }}

Extending

You can create any new block as you like by reading official documentation that you can find here Editor.Js docs

After creating new JS scripts with new block type Class, you can go through steps below to extend EditorJS formwidget:

  1. Create new method in your Plugin.php file named registerEditorBlocks(), and by example below add blocks array and scripts for them.
    /**
     * Registers additional blocks for EditorJS
     * @return array
     */
    public function registerEditorBlocks()
    {
        return [
            'raw' => [
                'settings' => [
                    'class' => 'RawTool'
                ],
                'validation' => [
                    'html' => [
                        'type' => 'string',
                        'allowedTags' => '*',
                    ]
                ],
                'scripts' => [
                    '/plugins/reazzon/editor/formwidgets/editorjs/assets/js/tools/raw.js',
                ],
                'view' => 'reazzon.editor::blocks.raw'
            ],
        ];
    }
    
  2. Done.
