Using TinyMCE from the Tiny Cloud CDN with the Angular framework

The Official TinyMCE Angular component integrates TinyMCE into Angular projects. This procedure creates a basic Angular application containing a TinyMCE editor.

For examples of the TinyMCE Angular integration, visit the tinymce-angular storybook.


This procedure requires Node.js (and npm).


  1. On a command line or command prompt, install the Angular CLI Tool package.

    npm install -g @angular/cli
  2. Create a new Angular project named tinymce-angular-demo.

    ng new --defaults --skip-git tinymce-angular-demo
  3. Change into the newly created directory.

    cd tinymce-angular-demo
  4. Install the tinymce-angular package and save it to your package.json with --save.

    npm install --save @tinymce/tinymce-angular
  5. Using a text editor, open /path/to/tinymce-angular-demo/src/app/app.module.ts and replace the contents with:

    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { EditorModule } from '@tinymce/tinymce-angular';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
      declarations: [
      imports: [
      providers: [],
      bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    export class AppModule { }
  6. Using a text editor, open /path/to/tinymce-angular-demo/src/app/app.component.html and replace the contents with:

    <h1>TinyMCE 6 Angular Demo</h1>
      [init]="{ plugins: 'lists link image table code help wordcount' }"
  7. Include the apiKey option in the editor element and include your Tiny Cloud API key. Such as:

    <editor apiKey="your-api-key" [init]={ /* your other settings */ } ></editor>
  8. Test the application using the Angular development server.

    • To start the development server, navigate to the tinymce-angular-demo directory and run:

      ng serve --open
    • To stop the development server, select on the command line or command prompt and press Ctrl+C.

Deploying the application to a HTTP server

The application will require further configuration before it can be deployed to a production environment. For information on configuring the application for deployment, see: Angular Docs - Building and serving Angular apps or Angular Docs - Deployment.

To deploy the application to a local HTTP Server:

  1. Navigate to the tinymce-angular-demo directory and run:

    ng build
  2. Copy the contents of the tinymce-angular-demo/dist directory to the root directory of the web server.

The application has now been deployed on the web server.

Additional configuration is required to deploy the application outside the web server root directory, such as http://localhost:<port>/my_angular_application.
