CommonMark + GFM Specifications

Today CommonMark is the de-facto Markdown standard. GFM (GitHub Flavored Markdown) is another popular specification based on CommonMark - maintained by GitHub, which is the Markdown mostly used. TOAST UI Editor follows both CommonMark and GFM specifications. Write documents with ease using productive tools provided by TOAST UI Editor and you can easily open the produced document wherever the specifications are supported.

Powerful Extensions

CommonMark and GFM are great, but we often need more abstraction. The TOAST UI Editor comes with powerful Extensions in compliance with the Markdown syntax. You also get the flexibility to develop your own extensions using simple APIs.

Here are some of the extensions you can start with:

  • Color Picker: ColorPicker provides an easy way to color text with a GUI tool box.
  • Chart Code Block: A code block marked as a 'chart' will render charts.
  • UML Code Block: A code block marked as an 'uml' will render UML diagrams.
  • Table Merge: You can merge columns and rows in tables.
  • To learn more about Extensions check the Using Extension.

Features

TOAST UI Editor provides Markdown mode and WYSIWYG mode.

Depending on the type of use you want like production of Markdown or maybe to just edit the Markdown. The TOAST UI Editor can be helpful for both the usage. It offers Markdown mode and WYSIWYG mode, which can be switched any point in time.

Productive Markdown Mode

Easy WYSIWYG Mode

Usage

The code below shows an example of using ES6 in node environment. If you are using bower please see Getting Started with Bower.

Create Editor

HTML

Add the container element where TOAST UI Editor will be created.

<div id="editorSection"></div>
JavaScript

TOAST UI Editor can be used by creating an instance with the constructor function. To get the constructor function, you should import the module using one of the following ways depending on your environment.

const Editor = require('tui-editor'); /* CommonJS */
import Editor from 'tui-editor'; /* ES6 */

Then import styles of TOAST UI Editor and dependencies.

import 'tui-editor/dist/tui-editor.css'; // editor's ui
import 'tui-editor/dist/tui-editor-contents.css'; // editor's content
import 'codemirror/lib/codemirror.css'; // codemirror
import 'highlight.js/styles/github.css'; // code block highlight

Finally you can create an instance with options and call various API after creating an instance.

import 'codemirror/lib/codemirror.css';
import 'tui-editor/dist/tui-editor.css';
import 'tui-editor/dist/tui-editor-contents.css';
import 'highlight.js/styles/github.css';


import Editor from 'tui-editor';


const instance = new Editor({
  el: document.querySelector('#editorSection'),
  initialEditType: 'markdown',
  previewStyle: 'vertical',
  height: '300px'
});


instance.getHtml();

If you use jQuery plugin, you can use it as follows.

$('#editorSection').tuiEditor({
  initialEditType: 'markdown',
  previewStyle: 'vertical',
  height: '300px'
});
Default Options
  • height: Height in string or auto ex) 300px | auto
  • initialValue: Initial value. Set Markdown string
  • initialEditType: Initial type to show markdown | wysiwyg
  • previewType: Preview style of Markdown mode tab | vertical
  • usageStatistics: Let us know the hostname. We want to learn from you how you are using the Editor. You are free to disable it. true | false

Create Viewer

TOAST UI Editor provides the Viewer in case you want to show Markdown content without loading the Editor. The Viewer is much lighter than the Editor.

import 'tui-editor/dist/tui-editor-contents.css';
import 'highlight.js/styles/github.css';


import Viewer from 'tui-editor/dist/tui-editor-Viewer';


const instance = new Viewer({
  el: document.querySelector('#viewerSection'),
  height: '500px',
  initialValue: '# content to be rendered'
});


instance.getHtml();

Be careful not to load both the Editor and the Viewer at the same time because the Editor already contains the Viewer function, you can initialize editor Editor.factory() and set the viewer option to value true in order to make the editor a viewer. You can also call getHtml() to render the HTML.

import Editor from 'tui-editor';


const instance = Editor.factory({
  el: document.querySelector('#viewerSection'),
  viewer: true,
  height: '500px',
  initialValue: '# content to be rendered'
});

TOAST UI Editor follows CommonMark and GFM. So any Markdown renderer including markdown-it can handle the content made using TOAST UI Editor. You can also use any of these renderer in place of TOAST UI Editor Viewer.
