BlockNote exposes an extensive API so you can integrate BlockNote into your app and add functionality to the editor.

Proven tech

BlockNote builds on top of Prosemirror and TipTap (two awesome open source projects), but is simpler to use. Prosemirror is a battle-tested framework, used by top organizations around the world to power their text-editing products.

React components

BlockNote is built for React and exposes easy-to-use components. However, it is possible to use BlockNote with other frameworks or Vanilla JS (advanced users).
