Input Rules

Input rules provide an option for modifying the input of the user on the fly and represent pairs of matches and corresponding actions. When the user input matches an input rule, the typed text is transformed based on the action of that rule.

The following example demonstrates how to implement input rules and attach them to the Editor.

Input rules in the example:

  • Converts '- ' or '+ ' to a bullet list.
  • Converts '1. ' or another number to an ordered list.
  • Converts '# ', '## ', '### ', '#### ', '##### ', '###### ' into heading 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, according to the '#' characters count.
  • Converts three backticks '```' to a code block.
  • Converts '> ' into a blockquote.
  • Converts double dashes to an emdash.
  • Converts three dots to an ellipsis character.
