Install vue-froala-wysiwyg from npm

npm install vue-froala-wysiwyg --save


1. Require and use Froala Editor component inside your application.

main.js file:

//Import Froala Editor 
    import 'froala-editor/js/plugins.pkgd.min.js';
    //Import third party plugins
    import 'froala-editor/js/third_party/embedly.min';
    import 'froala-editor/js/third_party/font_awesome.min';
    import 'froala-editor/js/third_party/spell_checker.min';
    import 'froala-editor/js/third_party/image_tui.min';
    // Import Froala Editor css files.
    import 'froala-editor/css/froala_editor.pkgd.min.css';
    import 'froala-editor/css/froala_style.min.css';
    import App from './App'
    import { createApp } from 'vue'
    import VueFroala from 'vue-froala-wysiwyg';
    const app = createApp(App);          

App.vue file:

    <div id="app">
      <froala id="edit" :tag="'textarea'" :config="config" v-model:value="model"></froala>
  export default {
    name: 'App',
    data () {
      return {
        config: {
          events: {
            initialized: function () {
        model: 'Edit Your Content Here!'

2. Make sure you have the right Webpack settings for loading the CSS files.

    var webpack = require('webpack')
    var path = require('path')
    module.exports = {
      module: {
        loaders: [
          // ...
          // Css loader.
            test: /\.css$/,
            loader: 'cssLoader'
      vue: {
        loaders: {
          // ...
          // Css loader for Webpack 1.x .
          css: 'cssLoader'



// If model is initialized, 'Init text' text child will be overwritten.
  <froala :tag="'textarea'" :config="config" v-model:value="model">Init text</froala>

:tag attr is used to tell on which tag the editor is initialized.

There are special tags: a, button, img, input.


You can pass editor options as component attribute (optional).


You can pass any existing Froala option. Consult the Froala documentation to view the list of all the available options:

config: {
    placeholderText: 'Edit Your Content Here!',
    charCounterCount: false

Aditional option is used: * immediateVueModelUpdate: (default: false) This option updates the Vue model as soon as a key is released in the editor. Note that it may affect performances.

Events and Methods

Events can be passed in with the options, with a key events and object where the key is the event name and the value is the callback function.

config: {
    placeholder: "Edit Me",
    events : {
      'froalaEditor.focus' : function(e, editor) {

Using the editor instance from the arguments of the callback you can call editor methods as described in the method docs.

Froala events are described in the events docs.


The WYSIWYG HTML editor content model. Two way binding is suported.


Use the content in other places:

<input v-model:value="model"/>

Special tags

You can also use the editor on img, button, input and a tags:

<froala :tag="img" v-model:value="imgModel"></froala>

The model must be an object containing the attributes for your special tags. Example:

imgModel: {
    src: require('./image.jpg')

The model will change as the attributes change during usage.

  • The model can contain a special attribute named innerHTML which inserts innerHTML in the element: If you are using 'button' tag, you can specify the button text like this:
buttonModel: {
    innerHTML: 'Click Me'

As the button text is modified by the editor, the innerHTML attribute from buttonModel model will be modified too.

Specific option for special tags

  • vueIgnoreAttrs: (default: null) This option is an array of attributes that you want to ignore when the editor updates the v-model:
config: {
    vueIgnoreAttrs: ['class', 'id']

Custom Buttons

You can pass the custom buttons to the editor by following way:

App.vue file:

      import FroalaEditor from 'froala-editor';
      FroalaEditor.DefineIcon('alert', {NAME: 'info', SVG_KEY: 'help'});
        FroalaEditor.RegisterCommand('alert', {
          title: 'Hello',
          focus: false,
          undo: false,
          refreshAfterCallback: false,
          callback: function () {
        FroalaEditor.DefineIcon('clear', {NAME: 'remove', SVG_KEY: 'remove'});
        FroalaEditor.RegisterCommand('clear', {
          title: 'Clear HTML',
          focus: false,
          undo: true,
          refreshAfterCallback: true,
          callback: function () {
        FroalaEditor.DefineIcon('insert', {NAME: 'plus', SVG_KEY: 'add'});
        FroalaEditor.RegisterCommand('insert', {
          title: 'Insert HTML',
          focus: true,
          undo: true,
          refreshAfterCallback: true,
          callback: function () {
            this.html.insert('My New HTML');

Now you can use these buttons in options:
toolbarButtons: [['undo', 'redo' , 'bold'], ['alert', 'clear', 'insert']],
