Yii 2.0: yii2-ckeditor-widget

Renders a CKEditor WYSIWYG text editor plugin widget


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run php composer.phar require "2amigos/yii2-ckeditor-widget" "*" or add "2amigos/yii2-ckeditor-widget" : "*"

to the require section of your application's composer.json file.

Skins & Plugins

This widget works with default's dev-full/stable branch of CKEditor, with a set of plugins and skins. If you wish to configure a different skins or plugins that the one proposed, you will have to download them separately and configure the widget's clientOptions attribute accordingly.


The library comes with two widgets: CKEditor and CKEditorInline. One is for classic edition and the other for inline editing respectively.

Using a model with a basic preset:

use dosamigos\ckeditor\CKEditor;
<?= $form->field($model, 'text')->widget(CKEditor::className(), [
        'options' => ['rows' => 6],
        'preset' => 'basic'
    ]) ?>

Using inline edition with basic preset:

use dosamigos\ckeditor\CKEditorInline;
<?php CKEditorInline::begin(['preset' => 'basic']);?>
    This text can be edited now :)
<?php CKEditorInline::end();?>
Your code here...

Further Information

Please, check the CKEditor plugin site documentation for further information about its configuration options.

Custom build

Same here, as I may judge. Downloaded a custom build. Do I just replace the corresponding vendor dir? What about updates then?

Thank you in advance
