Using TinyMCE from the Tiny Cloud CDN with the Web Component

The Official TinyMCE Web Component integrates TinyMCE into Web Component projects. This procedure creates an HTML page containing a TinyMCE editor.

Procedure

To add a TinyMCE editor to a web page using the TinyMCE Web Component:

  1. Add the DOCTYPE element to the target page, such as:

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    The DOCTYPE declaration is required for the editor to function correctly.

  2. Add the following meta elements to the head of page:

    <head>
      <meta charset="UTF-8">
      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    </head>

    The second meta element is required for the editor to function correctly on mobile devices. For information on the viewport meta element, see: MDN Web Docs - Using the viewport meta tag to control layout on mobile browsers.

  3. Add a script element sourcing the TinyMCE Web Component (tinymce-webcomponent.js), such as:

    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@tinymce/tinymce-webcomponent@2/dist/tinymce-webcomponent.min.js"></script>

    The tinymce-webcomponent can also be sourced from npmjs.

  4. Add a tinymce-editor element where the editor should appear and include your Tiny Cloud API key from Tiny Account.

    <tinymce-editor
      api-key="your-tiny-cloud-api-key"
    ></tinymce-editor>

    The default TinyMCE editor will load at this location if the page is opened in a web browser.
