Slate is a low-level editor framework that helps you deal with difficult parts when building an editor, such as events handlers, elements, formatting, commands, rendering, serializing, normalizing, etc.

While you are trying to build your own editors, it still needs a lot of skills to make something similar to Quill or ProseMirror. This repository allows you to build your editor right away with minimal slate knowledge.

@udecode/plate is built on top of slate to handle plugins and state management for an optimal development experience. This repository comes with a lot of plugins as elements, marks, serializers, normalizers, queries, transforms, components and so on.

  • 🏎 Simple Start

You only need one component to get started: <Plate>

  • 🐻 State Management

zustand store is internally used to support multiple editor states.

  • πŸ’… Design System

The API is design system friendly. We provide a default design system for quick start but you can plug-in your own one using a single function.

  • πŸ”Œ 40+ Packages

We enforce separation of concerns by packaging each feature for build optimization and versioning.

  • πŸ›  Extensible

All plugins accept extensible options and if you need to fork a plugin, all its functions are exported.

  • πŸ“¦ Tree-shaking / ES modules
  • βœ… TypeScript types
  • βœ… Unit tested with slate@0.63.0 and slate-react@0.65.2


To find out more see the following Plate documentation sections:

See plate-playground for a full example.

The documentation is far from being complete and will be constantly evolving (as will the packages).

Looking for slate-plugins?

This repo has been renamed to plate. The name change should not disrupt any current usage, repo clones, pull requests or issue reporting. Links should redirect to the new location. The library formerly known as @udecode/slate-plugins is now available as @udecode/plate.

Author's Note

@zbeyens: I'm building an app with an editor like many of you and my first initiative was to spend months to share this work, while hundreds of developers were coding and debugging the exact same features. Open-source is a long-term investment for a bug-free product and reducing technical debt, so I can only encourage you to join this collaboration. Our goal is to build a fully-featured editor.
