  • Draft.js

    Discontinued A React framework for building text editors.

  • Draft-js developed by Facebook, last update was over 2 years ago and it still got over 800k weekly downloads. I can't quite get it to work so I'm wondering if theres other good alternatives out there.

  • quill

    Quill is a modern WYSIWYG editor built for compatibility and extensibility.

  • I used React Quill on a recent project. Was very easy to use and worked for my needs.

  • slate

    A completely customizable framework for building rich text editors. (Currently in beta.) (by ianstormtaylor)

  • Word of warning about Slate: I love the API and the design goals, but it appears to suffer from some fundamental issues. We were experiencing issues similar to this one and a team of multiple 10+ year experienced frontend devs couildn't figure out what was going on. I had to completely rip out a feature we had built with Slate and had to reimplement a new version from scratch with Lexical. So far we have no issues other than those inherent to rich text editing.
