<RichTextInput> for react-admin

For editing HTML with react-admin, use the <RichTextInput> component. It embarks quill, a popular cross-platform Rich Text Editor.

<RichTextInput> example


npm install ra-input-rich-text --save-dev


import * as React from "react";
import {
} from 'react-admin';
import RichTextInput from '@mochilabs/ra-input-rich-text';

const PostTitle = ({ record }) => {
    return <span>Post {record ? `"${record.title}"` : ''}</span>;

export const PostEdit = (props) => (
    <Edit title={<PostTitle />} {...props}>
        <TextInput disabled label="Id" source="id" />
        <TextInput source="title" validation={{ required: true }} />
        <TextInput multiline source="teaser" validation={{ required: true }} />
        <RichTextInput source="body" validation={{ required: true }} />
        <DateInput label="Publication date" source="published_at" />

You can customize the rich text editor toolbar using the toolbar attribute, as described on the Quill official toolbar documentation.

<RichTextInput source="body" toolbar={[ ['bold', 'italic', 'underline', 'link'] ]} />

If you need more customization, you can access the quill object through the configureQuill callback that will be called just after its initialization.

const configureQuill = quill => quill.getModule('toolbar').addHandler('bold', function (value) {
    this.quill.format('bold', value)

// ...

<RichTextInput source="text" configureQuill={configureQuill}/>

Tip: When used inside a material-ui <Card> (e.g in the default <Edit> view), <RichTextInput> displays link tooltip as cut off when the user wants to add a hyperlink to a word located on the left side of the input. This is due to an incompatibility between material-ui's <Card> component and Quill's positioning algorithm for the link tooltip.

To fix this problem, you should override the default card style, as follows:

import { Edit, SimpleForm, TextInput } from 'react-admin';
+import { withStyles } from '@material-ui/core/styles';

-const PostEdit = props => (
+const PostEdit = withStyles({ card: { overflow: 'initial' } })(props => (
   <Edit {...props}>
            // ...
