Quick Start

npm install ng2-froala-editor --save

Angular 4 Version

The most recent version of this module (1.0.17) uses Angular 4.0.0
If you have encountered problem, you may use the previous version (1.0.15), which was based on Angular 2.0.0


In your NgModule:

import {NgModule} from '@angular/core';
import {BrowserModule} from '@angular/platform-browser';
import {FormsModule} from '@angular/forms';
import {FroalaEditorModule} from 'ng2-froala-editor/ng2-froala-editor'; // <-- Import it in your NgModule
import {HttpModule} from '@angular/http';
import {MyComponent} from './My.component';
import {MyService} from './My.service';

  imports: [
    FroalaEditorModule  // <-- Include in your module
  declarations: [
  bootstrap: [
  providers: [

export class AppModule { }

In your component:

import {Component, OnInit} from '@angular/core';
import {FroalaEditorComponent} from 'ng2-froala-editor/ng2-froala-editor';    <-- add this to get instance of FroalaEditorComponent

  selector: 'my-component',
  template: `
    <froala [froalaOptions]="froalaOptions" [froalaData]="text" (model)="onFroalaModelChanged($event)" (editorInitialized)="onEditorInitialized()"></froala>

export class MyComponent implements OnInit {

  text = '<div>Hey we are testing Froala Editor</div>';
  editor: any;

  froalaOptions: any = {
    height: 300

  constructor() {


  ngOnInit() {


  onFroalaModelChanged(event: any) {
    setTimeout(() => {
      this.text = event;

  onEditorInitialized(event?: any) {
    this.editor = FroalaEditorComponent.getFroalaInstance();
    this.editor.on('froalaEditor.focus', (e, editor) => {
      console.log("editor is focused");



  • froalaData [string] If you have strings you would like the editor to have when it initializes, you can put it here
  • froalaOptions [object] When Froala Editor initializes, you can pass an object to the editor to use different options. For the list of options, you can see it on Froala options


  • model [Event]
  • editorInitialized [Event] This emits an event without any data. You can catch it if your component needs to know when the editor finishes initializing. One of the use cases is to get the Froala Editor instance

Static Method

  • getFroalaInstance() Returns a Froala Editor instance, or the DOM the editor resides. From there you can call Froala's method and set up listener for events


Here is a snippet of how you can interact with the editor. Use onEditorInitialized() function above as example:

onEditorInitialized(event?: any) {
  // Save the editor instance
  this.editor = FroalaEditorComponent.getFroalaInstance();

  // Listen to Froala Editor's event
  this.editor.on('froalaEditor.focus', (e, editor) => {
    console.log("editor is focused");

    // Use Froala Editor's method
