  createMaterialEditor,
  Toolbar
} from '@unicef/material-slate'

Reference documentation

Because this editor is just a wrapper of Slate, it can be fully extended following the Slate docs.

Toolbars

Two types of button bars can be added:

  • <Toolbar />. Regular button bar that appears at the top

  • <HoveringToolbar />). A toolbar that appears over a selected text. It is displayed only when a text is selected.

    Toolbars shall be included within <MaterialSlate /> component.

Select toolbar buttons

By default both toolbars display a predefined set of buttons. To customize the buttons that appear in your toolbar, add the buttons you want as children.

For example if you want to display only bold and italic buttons:

//...
import { BoldButton, ItalicButton } from '@unicef/material-slate'
//...

//...
<HoveringToolbar >
  <BoldButton />
  <ItalicButton />
</HoveringToolbar>

The complete list of available buttons is in /src/component/Buttons folder.

Extend toolbar with custom buttons

In order to create your custom behavior you can add a ToolbarButton in a toolbar.

The steps

  1. Add the customized ToolbarButton to the toolbar
  2. Extend renderElement
