Welcome back to our in-depth guide on incorporating TinyMCE, a popular WYSIWYG editor, into your Angular 17 projects. This step-by-step tutorial will enhance your text input capabilities, making your applications more dynamic and user-friendly.


Before we begin, ensure you have Node.js and npm installed on your system. A basic understanding of Angular 17 concepts and the Angular CLI is also required.

Step 1: Setting Up Your Angular Project

Start by installing Angular CLI globally using the command:

npm install -g @angular/cli

Then, create a new Angular project with default settings using:

ng new [project-name]

After creating your project, open it in your editor.

Step 2: Installing Dependencies

In the root directory of your project, install TinyMCE and its Angular integration:

npm install --save tinymce @tinymce/tinymce-angular

This installs TinyMCE and its necessary Angular package.

Step 3: Modifying the App Module

Import the EditorModule into your AppModule:

import { EditorModule } from '@tinymce/tinymce-angular';

imports: [
// other imports
export class AppModule { }

If you’re using standalone components in Angular 17, import the dependencies directly into the component.

Step 4: Setting Up the App Component Template

In your app component’s HTML file, add the TinyMCE editor element:

<editor [init]="{
plugins: 'lists link image table code help wordcount'

The init directive allows you to pass configuration options, like plugins, to the editor instance.

Step 5: Including TinyMCE Library in Project Assets
