Please understand before using

Braft Editor is an editor based on draft-js. Draft-js does not directly use HTML as the component state. It implements an EditorState type, which is essentially a JS object. In the traditional rich text editor, The piece of HTML content corresponding to EditorState is a block; this can be verified by looking at editorState.toRAW ().

The advantage of using EditorState instead of HTML strings is that a set of EditorState can be used on multiple ends, and the content produced by the editor is no longer limited to being displayed on the web platform (of course, each platform also needs to implement the corresponding EditorState to View conversion function) At the same time, it is more suitable for the component state of React.

However, in the above implementation, the biggest problem is that it cannot perfectly convert external HTML into EditorState, because its supported styles, tags, tag attributes, and so on are extremely limited, and there is no way to convert all the features in HTML to the state in EditorState. , When using third-party or historical HTML strings to initialize the editor content, and when pasting external HTML content, only a small number of styles and tag attributes supported by the editor can be retained, most of the content will be filtered or Ignore it.

Based on the above shortcomings, if your project strongly depends on the original HTML tags and attributes, etc., this editor is not recommended.

The editor supports value and onChange properties, which are similar to the native input components in React. In general, you can use this editor in the form of a typical controlled component:

import React from 'react'
import BraftEditor from 'braft-editor'
import 'braft-editor/dist/index.css'

export default class EditorDemo extends React.Component {

  state = {
      editorState: null

  async componentDidMount () {
    // Assume here to get the editor content in html format from the server
    const htmlContent = await fetchEditorContent()
    // Use BraftEditor.createEditorState to convert html strings to editorState data needed by the editor
      editorState: BraftEditor.createEditorState(htmlContent)

  submitContent = async () => {
    // Pressing ctrl + s when the editor has focus will execute this method
    // Before the editor content is submitted to the server, you can directly call editorState.toHTML () to get the HTML content
    const htmlContent = this.state.editorState.toHTML()
    const result = await saveEditorContent(htmlContent)

  handleEditorChange = (editorState) => {
    this.setState({ editorState })

  render () {

    const { editorState } = this.state

    return (
      <div className="my-component">



Of course, this editor also supports the defaultValue property, so you can also use this editor as a uncontrolled component.
