The world's #1 open source rich text editor.

Used and trusted by millions of developers, TinyMCE is the world’s most customizable, scalable, and flexible rich text editor. We’ve helped launch the likes of Atlassian, Medium, Evernote (and lots more that we can’t tell you), by empowering them to create exceptional content and experiences for their users.

With more than 350M+ downloads every year, we’re also one of the most trusted enterprise-grade open source HTML editors on the internet. There’s currently more than 100M+ products worldwide, powered by Tiny. As a high powered WYSIWYG editor, TinyMCE is built to scale, designed to innovate, and thrives on delivering results to difficult edge-cases.

You can access a full featured demo of TinyMCE in the docs on the TinyMCE website.

TinyMCE provides a range of configuration options that allow you to integrate it into your application. Start customizing with a basic setup.

Configure it for one of three modes of editing:



TinyMCE is easily integrated into your projects with the help of components such as:

With over 29 integrations, and 400+ APIs, see the TinyMCE docs for a full list of editor integrations.


It is easy to configure the UI of your rich text editor to match the design of your site, product or application. Due to its flexibility, you can configure the editor with as much or as little functionality as you like, depending on your requirements.

With 50+ powerful plugins available, and content editable as the basis of TinyMCE, adding additional functionality is as simple as including a single line of code.

Realizing the full power of most plugins requires only a few lines more.


Sometimes your editor requirements can be quite unique, and you need the freedom and flexibility to innovate. Thanks to TinyMCE being open source, you can view the source code and develop your own extensions for custom functionality to meet your own requirements.

The TinyMCE API is exposed to make it easier for you to write custom functionality that fits within the existing framework of TinyMCE UI components.
