TFirst, remove all Quill code and its dependencies from your project.

  1. Remove the Quill script file loaded through the CDN

      <!-- Include stylesheet -->
      <link href='https://cdn.quilljs.com/1.3.6/quill.snow.css' rel='stylesheet'>
      <!-- Include the Quill library -->
      <script src='https://cdn.quilljs.com/1.3.6/quill.js'></script>
      
  2. Remove the Quill initialization script

      <script>
          var quill = new Quill('#editor',{
              theme: 'snow'
          });
      </script>
          

Add Froala Editor

Once all the Quill dependencies are removed, you can add Froala Editor following these steps:

  1. Include the required CSS files in the HEAD tag.

    <!-- Include Font Awesome CSS. -->
      <link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.4.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
      <!-- include editor style. -->
      <link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor/css/froala_editor.pkgd.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
      <link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor/css/froala_style.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
      
  2. Add the JS files at the end of theBODY

    <!-- Include editor JS files. -->
      <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor/js/froala_editor.pkgd.min.js"></script>
      
  3. Initialize the Froala editor

    <!-- Initialize Froala Editor -->
      <script>
          var editor = new FroalaEditor('#editor')
      </script>

    <head>
      <meta charset="utf-8">
