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...
