Enhancing Angular 17 with TinyMCE: A Comprehensive Tutorial

Introduction: Elevating Text Input in Angular

Welcome back to our in-depth guide on incorporating TinyMCE, a popular WYSIWYG editor, into your Angular 17 projects. This step-by-step tutorial will enhance your text input capabilities, making your applications more dynamic and user-friendly.


Before we begin, ensure you have Node.js and npm installed on your system. A basic understanding of Angular 17 concepts and the Angular CLI is also required.

Step 1: Setting Up Your Angular Project

Start by installing Angular CLI globally using the command:

npm install -g @angular/cli

Then, create a new Angular project with default settings using:

ng new [project-name]

After creating your project, open it in your editor.

Step 2: Installing Dependencies

In the root directory of your project, install TinyMCE and its Angular integration:

npm install --save tinymce @tinymce/tinymce-angular

This installs TinyMCE and its necessary Angular package.

Step 3: Modifying the App Module

Import the EditorModule into your AppModule:

import { EditorModule } from '@tinymce/tinymce-angular';

  imports: [
    // other imports
export class AppModule { }

If you’re using standalone components in Angular 17, import the dependencies directly into the component.

Step 4: Setting Up the App Component Template

In your app component’s HTML file, add the TinyMCE editor element:

<editor [init]="{
  plugins: 'lists link image table code help wordcount'

The init directive allows you to pass configuration options, like plugins, to the editor instance.

Step 5: Including TinyMCE Library in Project Assets

Modify your angular.json to include TinyMCE's library in your project's assets:

"assets": [
    "glob": "**/*",
    "input": "./node_modules/tinymce",
    "output": "/tinymce/"
  // other assets

This ensures TinyMCE assets are correctly handled during the build process and available at runtime.

Step 6: Testing the Integration

Restart your server to load the changes. Upon loading, you should see the TinyMCE editor integrated into your application.


You’ve now successfully integrated TinyMCE into your Angular application, opening up a world of rich text editing capabilities. Experiment with TinyMCE’s extensive plugin library to further customize your editor.
