function createReactManager()

Create a React [[RemirrorManager]] with all the default react presets and extensions.

Signature:

export declare function createReactManager<Extension extends AnyExtension>(extensions: Extension[] | (() => Extension[]) | RemirrorManager<ReactExtensions<Extension>>, options?: CreateReactManagerOptions): RemirrorManager<ReactExtensions<Extension>>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription

function Remirror_2()

[[Remirror]] is the component for putting the editor into into it's child component.

Signature:

export declare function Remirror<Extension extends AnyExtension = Remirror.Extensions>(props: RemirrorProps<Extension>): ReactElement<RemirrorProps<Extension>>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
propsRemirrorProps<Extension>

Returns:

ReactElement<RemirrorProps<Extension>>

Remarks:

The main component for remirror. This acts both as a Provider of the remirror context. All components rendered within Remirror have access to the remirror context via useRemirrorContext.

I can also be rendered as a standalone editor without children. In this case the context can be accessed from outside the editor via useRemirror().getContext().

function useActive()

This is a shorthand method for retrieving the active available in the editor.

import { useActive } from '@remirror/react';

This hooks updates the local component on each state update for the editor, so it can be quite expensive.

Signature:

export declare function useActive<Extension extends AnyExtension = Remirror.Extensions>(autoUpdate?: boolean): ActiveFromExtensions<Extension>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
autoUpdateboolean(Optional) Set to false to prevent automatic re-rendering on every state update.

Returns:

ActiveFromExtensions<Extension>

function useAttrs()

A core hook which provides the attributes for the nodes and marks in the editor.

import { useAttrs } from '@remirror/react';

const EditorButton = () => {
const attrs = useAttrs();
const { link } = attrs;

return <a href={link.href}>{link().href}</a>;
}

Signature:

export declare function useAttrs<Extension extends AnyExtension = Remirror.Extensions>(update?: boolean): AttrsFromExtensions<Extension>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
updateboolean(Optional)

Returns:

AttrsFromExtensions<Extension>

function useChainedCommands()

A core hook which provides the chainable commands for usage in your editor.

import { useChainedCommands } from '@remirror/react';

const EditorButton = () => {
const chain = useChainedCommands();

function useExtension()

Dynamically update the properties of your extension via hooks. Provide the Extension constructor and the properties you want to update.

Signature:

export declare function useExtension<Type extends AnyExtensionConstructor>(Constructor: Type): InstanceType<Type>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
ConstructorType

Returns:

InstanceType<Type>

Remarks:

Please note that every time the properties change your extension is updated. You will want to memoize or prevent needless updates somehow to the properties passed in.

This is only available within the context of the Remirror it will throw an error otherwise.

It can be used with three distinct call signatures.

**Get the extension instance**

import { useExtension } from '@remirror/react';
import { BoldExtension } from 'remirror/extensions';

const Editor = () => {
const boldExtension = useExtension(BoldExtension);

boldExtension.setOptions({ weight: '800' });

return null;
}

**Update the extension properties**

import { useExtension } from '@remirror/react';
import { PlaceholderExtension } from 'remirror/extensions';

const EditorPlaceholder = ({ placeholder = 'Your magnum opus' }) => {
useExtension(PlaceholderExtension, { placeholder }); // Updates the placeholder.

return null;
}

**Add event handlers to your extension**

import { useCallback } from 'react';
import { HistoryExtension, HistoryOptions } from 'remirror/extensions';
import { useExtension } from '@remirror/react';

const Editor = ({ placeholder = 'Your magnum opus' }) => {
useExtension(
HistoryExtension,
useCallback(
({ addHandler }) => {
return addHandler('onRedo', () => log('a redo just happened'));
},
[],
),
[event, handler],
);

return null;
};

These hooks can serve as the building blocks when customizing your editor experience with remirror.

function useExtension()

Signature:

export declare function useExtension<Type extends AnyExtensionConstructor>(Constructor: Type, memoizedCallback: UseExtensionCallback<Type>, dependencies?: DependencyList): void;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
ConstructorType

optionsDynamicOptionsOfConstructor<Type>

Returns:

void

function useExtensionEvent()

Dynamically add event handlers to your extension.

Signature:

export declare function useExtensionEvent<Type extends AnyExtensionConstructor, Key extends keyof GetHandler<OptionsOfConstructor<Type>>>(extension: Type, event: Key, memoizedHandler: Handler<GetHandler<OptionsOfConstructor<Type>>[Key]>): void;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
extensionType
eventKey
memoizedHandlerHandler<GetHandler<OptionsOfConstructor<Type>>[Key]>

Returns:

void

Remarks:

Please note that every time the properties change your extension is updated. You will want to memoize or prevent needless updates somehow to the properties passed in.

This is only available within the context of the Remirror it will throw an error otherwise.

import { useCallback } from 'react';
import { HistoryExtension } from 'remirror/extensions';
import { useExtensionEvent } from '@remirror/react';

const RedoLogger = () => {
useExtensionEvent(
HistoryExtension,
'onRedo',
useCallback(() => log('a redo just happened'), []),
);

return null;
};

These hooks can serve as the building blocks when customizing your editor experience with remirror.

function useHasExtension()

Assert if an extension is present in the manager by providing its constructor

Signature:

export declare function useHasExtension<Type extends AnyExtensionConstructor>(Constructor: Type): boolean;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
ConstructorType

Returns:

boolean

function useHelpers()

A core hook which provides the helpers for usage in your editor.

import { useHelpers } from '@remirror/react';

const EditorButton = () => {
const helpers = useHelpers();

return (
<>
<button onClick={() => helpers.toggleBold()}>
Click me!
</button>
<button onClick={() => helpers.chain.toggleBold().toggleItalic().run()}>
Chain me!
</button>
</>
);
}

`

Passing true as the first argument will ensure that the component this hook is placed inside will rerender on every update.

Signature:

export declare function useHelpers<Extension extends AnyExtension = Remirror.Extensions>(update?: boolean): HelpersFromExtensions<Extension>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
updateboolean(Optional)

Returns:

HelpersFromExtensions<Extension>

function useMarkRange()

A hook which returns the selected range of the mark of the provided type.

Signature:

export declare function useMarkRange(type: string): GetMarkRange | undefined;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
typestring

Returns:

GetMarkRange | undefined

function usePortalContainer()

A hook which provides access to the portal container for rendering react component directly within the editor dom.

Signature:

export declare function usePortalContainer(): PortalContainer;

Returns:

PortalContainer

function useRemirror()

A hook which replaces the [[Remirror]] and gives you total control of the editor you can create.

This is very experimental and if successful could replace the current patterns being used.

Signature:

export declare function useRemirror<Extension extends AnyExtension>(props?: UseRemirrorProps<Extension>): UseRemirrorReturn<ReactExtensions<Extension>>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
propsUseRemirrorProps<Extension>(Optional)

Returns:

UseRemirrorReturn<ReactExtensions<Extension>>

function useRemirrorContext()

This provides access to the remirror context when using the Remirror.

The first argument which is optional can also be a change handler which is called every time the state updates.

Signature:

export declare function useRemirrorContext<Extension extends AnyExtension = Remirror.Extensions>(handler?: RemirrorEventListener<Extension> | {
autoUpdate: boolean;
}): ReactFrameworkOutput<Extension>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
handlerRemirrorEventListener<Extension> | { autoUpdate: boolean; }(Optional)

Returns:

ReactFrameworkOutput<Extension>

Remarks:

The following example applies the root props to the div.

import { Remirror, useRemirrorContext } from 'remirror';

const HooksComponent = (props) => {
// This pulls the remirror props out from the context.
const { getRootProps } = useRemirrorContext();

return <div {...getRootProps()} />;
}

class App extends Component {
render() {
return (
<Remirror>
<HooksComponent />
</Remirror>
);
}
}

For performance reasons useRemirror does not automatically trigger a rerender on every editor update. This allows for you use it in component which don't need to track the latest editor state, without suffering a performance penalty.

However if you do want to track whether a command is enabled at the current selection or whether a certain formatting mark (bold) is active at the current selection you can pass through an optional parameter.

const EditorButton = () => {
const { active, commands } = useRemirrorContext({ autoUpdate: true });

return (
<button style={{ fontWeight: active.bold() ? 'bold' : undefined }}>
B
<button>
);
}

The above example keep track of whether the current selection is bold on every update to the editor. Updates can be document changes and selection changes.

For more control you can also use a handler function as the first parameter to selectively rerender as you see fit.

const EditorButton = () => {
const { active, commands } = useRemirrorContext(() => {
if (active.bold() === boldActive) {
return;
}

setBoldActive(active.bold());
});

const [boldActive, setBoldActive] = useState(active.bold());

return (
<button style={{ fontWeight: boldActive ? 'bold' : undefined }}>
B
<button>
)
}

In this case the component only re-renders when the bold formatting changes.

function useSelectedText()

A core hook which provides the the currently selected text.

import { useSelectedText } from '@remirror/react';

const RandomSpan = () => {
const text = useSelectedText();

return text && <span>{text}</span>;
}

`

Return the value of the currently selected text. When the text selection is empty

Signature:

export declare function useSelectedText(): string | undefined;

Returns:

string | undefined

Signature:

refKey?: RefKey;

Signature:

import esLocale from '@remirror/i18n/es';
import { SocialEditor } from '@remirror/react-social-editor';
import { es } from 'make-plural/plurals';

i18n.loadLocaleData('es', { plurals: es });

i18n.load({

Signature:

getRootProps: <RefKey extends string = 'ref'>(options?: GetRootPropsConfig<RefKey>) => RefKeyRootProps<RefKey>;

Remarks:

By default Remirror will add the prosemirror editor instance directly into the first child element it receives. Using this method gives you full control over where the editor should be injected.

**IMPORTANT** In order to support SSR pre-rendering this should only be spread on a component with NO children.

**Example with indirectly nested components**

import { Remirror } from '@remirror/react';
import { PresetCore } from '@remirror/preset-core';
import { BoldExtension } from '@remirror/extension-bold';

(Some inherited members may not be shown because they are not represented in the documentation.)

property autoRender

Set this to start or end to automatically render the editor to the dom.

When set to start the editor will be added before all other child components. If end the editable editor will be added after all child components.

When no children are provided the editor will automatically be rendered even without this prop being set.

start is the preferred value since it helps avoid some of the issues that can arise from zIndex issues with floating components rendered within the context.

Signature:

autoRender?: boolean | 'start' | 'end';

property children

The optional children which can be passed into the [Remirror].

Signature:

children?: ReactNode;

property hooks

An array of hooks that can be passed through to the Remirror component and will be called in the order provided. Each hook receives no props but will have access to the RemirrorContext.

When a Manager is provided then several settings are ignored like [[stringHandler]] and [[onError]].

Signature:

extensions?: (() => Extension[]) | RemirrorManager<any>;

property onError

This is called when the editor has invalid content.

Signature:

onError?: InvalidContentHandler;

Remarks:

To add this to the editor the following is needed.

import React from 'react';
import { Remirror, InvalidContentHandler } from 'remirror';
import { Remirror, useManager } from '@remirror/react';
import { WysiwygPreset } from 'remirror/extensions';
