Import angular-editor module

import { HttpClientModule} from '@angular/common/http';
import { AngularEditorModule } from '@kolkov/angular-editor';

  imports: [ HttpClientModule, AngularEditorModule ]

Then in HTML

<angular-editor [placeholder]="'Enter text here...'" [(ngModel)]="htmlContent"></angular-editor>

or for usage with reactive forms

<angular-editor formControlName="htmlContent" [config]="editorConfig"></angular-editor>

if you using more than one editor on same page set id property

<angular-editor id="editor1" formControlName="htmlContent1" [config]="editorConfig"></angular-editor>
<angular-editor id="editor2" formControlName="htmlContent2" [config]="editorConfig"></angular-editor>


import { AngularEditorConfig } from '@kolkov/angular-editor';

editorConfig: AngularEditorConfig = {
    editable: true,
      spellcheck: true,
      height: 'auto',
      minHeight: '0',
      maxHeight: 'auto',
      width: 'auto',
      minWidth: '0',
      translate: 'yes',
      enableToolbar: true,
      showToolbar: true,
      placeholder: 'Enter text here...',
      defaultParagraphSeparator: '',
      defaultFontName: '',
      defaultFontSize: '',
      fonts: [
        {class: 'arial', name: 'Arial'},
        {class: 'times-new-roman', name: 'Times New Roman'},
        {class: 'calibri', name: 'Calibri'},
        {class: 'comic-sans-ms', name: 'Comic Sans MS'}
      customClasses: [
        name: 'quote',
        class: 'quote',
        name: 'redText',
        class: 'redText'
        name: 'titleText',
        class: 'titleText',
        tag: 'h1',
    uploadUrl: 'v1/image',
    upload: (file: File) => { ... }
    uploadWithCredentials: false,
    sanitize: true,
    toolbarPosition: 'top',
    toolbarHiddenButtons: [
      ['bold', 'italic'],

For ngModel to work, you must import FormsModule from @angular/forms, or for formControlName, you must import ReactiveFormsModule from @angular/forms

To serve the fontawesome files, ensure that your angular.json contains the following asset configuration:

  "glob": "**/*",
  "input": "./node_modules/@kolkov/angular-editor/assets/",
  "output": "./assets/fonts/"

Custom buttons

You can define your custom buttons with custom actions using executeCommandFn. It accepts commands from execCommand. The first argument of this method is aCommandName and the second argument is aValueArgument. Example shows a button that adds Angular editor logo into the editor.

<angular-editor id="editor1" formControlName="htmlContent1" [config]="editorConfig">
  <ng-template #customButtons let-executeCommandFn="executeCommandFn">
      <ae-button iconClass="fa fa-html5" title="Angular editor logo"
                 (buttonClick)="executeCommandFn('insertHtml', angularEditorLogo)">
