Can't find a good WYSIWYG editor for Meteor/React stack

I am working on an app that has a blog component, and I have spent hours looking for a pre-packages WYSIWYG html editor that plays nice with Meteor and React.

I have tried several that I found, but most haven’t been updated in months, and none of them use ES6 imports. I had Medium Editor working, butI can’t seem to get any of the extensions to work, namely the CustomHtml extension so I can add my own buttons.

I think tried AlloyEditor, but I can’t seem to figure out how to import it.

Has anyone found anything worth while that simply works out of the box?

Oops, misunderstood the post. :slight_smile: Some people have used Facebook’s Draft.js to build some stuff, maybe check those out (just do a search). Draft.js is pretty intense and low-level, so I wouldn’t expect to use that directly, unless you want to spend a good several hours building your own WYSIWYG component.

I’m using which I’ve found to be excellent. I have a couple of custom extensions with no issues at all.

I’ll check it out. I was trying to avoid having to write something myself or having to force something to work w/ React in a way that was not intuitive.


I’m looking at using react quill for a project. Is is possible to add custom buttons to it at all? Also, what was the benefit of using react-quill over the normal quill.js - noob q: i don’t understand why have the wrapper at all as quill can be brought in directly with npm right?

Hey, I was wondering if you did find answers to your questions? :slight_smile:

Have you given a shot?

You can do quite a lot with it. See

I ended up using draft.js. You have to do some work to get it functional, but it worked well for my needs.


i went with drafts too. it works well, and is simple to use.

How to export HTML from editor?

How to import HTML to editor?

use the convertToRaw and convertFromRaw to store in DB. FB has a opensource import HTML. Other people have created export HTML functions.

Does this also work with Quill?

not sure bud - i went with draft js.

I use, which is built on top of draft.js

I personally do not export to html at all, instead, i use the read-only-mode of megadraft to display the content. An editor of the page can do in-place-editing (by setting the editor to write-mode)

Hey macrozone can you give more information on how you setup it?

Saw this yesterday : WebFlow Might be what you want … ?

Seems to understand react … Building react components using webflow.
