How can I install plugins?

There is an only Paragraph block already included in Editor.js. Probably you want to use several Block Tools that should be installed and connected.

To add more Block Tools, simply add them to your repo and pass them as tools-property to your editor:

npm install --save-dev @editorjs/checklist
import EditorJs from 'react-editor-js';
import CheckList from '@editorjs/checklist';

<EditorJs data={data} tools={{ checkList: CheckList }} />;

We recommend to create a tools.js file and export your tools as a constant. Here is an example using all of the default plugins:

// tools.js
import Embed from '@editorjs/embed'
import Table from '@editorjs/table'
import Paragraph from '@editorjs/paragraph'
import List from '@editorjs/list'
import Warning from '@editorjs/warning'
import Code from '@editorjs/code'
import LinkTool from '@editorjs/link'
import Image from '@editorjs/image'
import Raw from '@editorjs/raw'
import Header from '@editorjs/header'
import Quote from '@editorjs/quote'
import Marker from '@editorjs/marker'
import CheckList from '@editorjs/checklist'
import Delimiter from '@editorjs/delimiter'
import InlineCode from '@editorjs/inline-code'
import SimpleImage from '@editorjs/simple-image'

export const EDITOR_JS_TOOLS = {
  embed: Embed,
  table: Table,
  paragraph: Paragraph,
  list: List,
  warning: Warning,
  code: Code,
  linkTool: LinkTool,
  image: Image,
  raw: Raw,
  header: Header,
  quote: Quote,
  marker: Marker,
  checklist: CheckList,
  delimiter: Delimiter,
  inlineCode: InlineCode,
  simpleImage: SimpleImage
import EditorJs from 'react-editor-js';
import { EDITOR_JS_TOOLS } from './tools'
<EditorJs data={data} tools={EDITOR_JS_TOOLS} />;

How do I use custom element?

It's simpleeeee

render() {
  return (
    <EditorJs holder="custom">
      <div id="custom" />

How to access editor-js instance?

You can access using instanceRef

async handleSave() {
  const savedData = await;

componentDidMount() {
  this.editorInstance // access editor-js

render() {
  return <EditorJs instanceRef={instance => this.editorInstance = instance} data={data} />

You should set linkTool config. ??

import LinkTool from '@editorjs/link'

render() {
      linkTool: {
        class: LinkTool,
        config: {
          endpoint: 'http://localhost:8008/fetchUrl', // Your backend endpoint for url data fetching
