    • Simple UI
    • Interactive WYSIWYG editing
    • Handy integration with server
    • Supports Bootstrap 3, 4 and 5 integrations
    • Lots of plugins and connectors provided together

    Installation and dependencies

    Summernote is built on jQuery.

    1. Include JS/CSS

    Include the following code in the <head> tag of your HTML:

    <!-- include libraries(jQuery, bootstrap) -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <!-- include summernote css/js-->
    <link href="summernote-bs5.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <script src="summernote-bs5.js"></script>

    2. Target a element

    Then place a div tag somewhere in the body tag. This element will be replaced with the summernote editor.

    <div id="summernote">Hello Summernote</div>

    3. Summernote it!

    Finally, run this script after the DOM is ready:

    $(document).ready(function() {

    code - get the HTML source code underlying the text in the editor:

    var html = $('#summernote').summernote('code');

    Warning - code injection

    The code view allows the user to enter script contents. Make sure to filter/sanitize the HTML on the server. Otherwise, an attacker can inject arbitrary JavaScript code into clients.
