Installation

Run console command

composer require bizley/quill:^3.1

Or add the package to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "bizley/quill": "^3.1"
    }
}

and run composer update.

NPM Assets

This package might depend on some NPM packages. Make sure you can fetch them by configuring your composer.json properly (i.e. by using https://asset-packagist.org/ - see instructions there).

Usage

Use it as an active field extension

<?= $form->field($model, $attribute)->widget(\bizley\quill\Quill::class, []) ?>

Or as a standalone widget

<?= \bizley\quill\Quill::widget(['name' => 'editor', 'value' => '']) ?>

Basic parameters

  • theme string default 'snow'
    'snow' (Quill::THEME_SNOW) for Quill's snow theme,
    'bubble' (Quill::THEME_BUBBLE) for Quill's bubble theme,
    false or null to remove theme (you might need to provide your own toolbar in case of no theme).
    See Quill's documentation for themes.

  • toolbarOptions boolean|string|array default true
    true for theme's default toolbar,
    'FULL' (Quill::TOOLBAR_FULL) for full Quill's toolbar,
    'BASIC' (Quill::TOOLBAR_BASIC) for few basic toolbar options,
    array for toolbar configuration (see below).

Toolbar

Quill's toolbar from version 1.0 can be easily configured with custom set of buttons.
See Toolbar module documentation for details.

You can pass PHP array to 'toolbarOptions' parameter to configure this module (it will be JSON-encoded).

For example, to get:

new Quill('#editor', {
    modules: {
        toolbar: [['bold', 'italic', 'underline'], [{'color': []}]]
    }
});

add the following code in widget configuration:

[
    'toolbarOptions' => [['bold', 'italic', 'underline'], [['color' => []]]],
],

Additional information

Container and form's inputs

Quill editor is rendered in div container (this can be changed by setting 'tag' parameter) and edited content is copied to hidden input field so it can be used in forms. You can modify container's HTML attributes by setting 'options' parameter and hidden field HTML attributes by setting 'hiddenOptions' parameter.

Editor box's height

Default editor height is 150px (this can be changed by setting 'options' parameter) and its box extends as new text lines are added.

Quill source

By default, Quill is provided through the CDN (https://cdn.quilljs.com). You can change the Quill's version set with the current yii2-quill's release by changing 'quillVersion' parameter but some options may not work correctly in this case. Starting from version 3.0.0 you can use local assets for Quill provided through NPM packet manager - to do so run

composer require npm-asset/quill:^1.3

Or add the package to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "npm-asset/quill": "^1.3"
    }
}

You also need to set ['localAssets' => true] in Quill's configuration.

Additional JavaScript code

You can use parameter 'js' to append additional JS code.
For example, to disable user input Quill's API provides this JS:

quill.enable(false);

To get the same through widget's configuration add the following code:

[
    'js' => '{quill}.enable(false);',
],

{quill} placeholder will be automatically replaced with the editor's object variable name.
For more details about Quill's API visit https://quilljs.com/docs/api/

Formula module

Quill can render math formulas using the KaTeX library.
To add this option configure widget with Formula module:

[
    'modules' => [
        'formula' => true, // Include formula module
    ],
    'toolbarOptions' => [['formula']], // Include button in toolbar
]

By default, KaTeX is provided through the CDN (https://cdn.jsdelivr.net). You can change the version of KaTeX by setting the 'katexVersion' parameter. Starting from version 3.0.0 you can use local assets for KaTeX provided through NPM packet manager - to do so run

composer require npm-asset/katex:^0.11

Or add the package to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "npm-asset/katex": "^0.11"
    }
}

You also need to set ['localAssets' => true] in Quill's configuration.

Syntax Highlighter module

Quill can automatically detect and apply syntax highlighting using the highlight.js library. To add this option configure widget with Syntax Highlighter module:

[
    'modules' => [
        'syntax' => true, // Include syntax module
    ],
    'toolbarOptions' => [['code-block']] // Include button in toolbar
]

By default, highlight.js is provided through the CDN (https://cdn.jsdelivr.net). You can change the version of highlight.js by setting the 'highlightVersion' parameter. Starting from version 3.0.0 you can use local assets for highlight.js provided through NPM packet manager - to do so run

composer require npm-asset/highlight.js:^9.18

Or add the package to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "npm-asset/highlight.js": "^9.18"
    }
}

You also need to set ['localAssets' => true] in Quill's configuration.

You can change the default highlight.js stylesheet (for both CDN and local version) by setting the 'highlightStyle' parameter. See the list of possible styles.

Smart Break module

You can add Smart Break (support for shift + enter) by using the quill-smart-break plugin:

[
    'modules' => [
        'smart-breaker' => true,
    ],
]

Starting from version 3.1.0 quill-smart-break is provided through NPM packet manager by local asset. For previous versions you would have to add it through custom JS (see js property).
Run

composer require npm-asset/quill-smart-break:^0.1

Or add the package to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "npm-asset/quill-smart-break": ">=0.1.1 <1.0.0"
    }
}

You also need to set ['localAssets' => true] in Quill's configuration.
