KendoReact Rich Text Editor Overview

The KendoReact Editor enables users to create rich textual content through a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) interface and delivers a set of tools for creating, editing, and formatting of text, paragraphs, lists, and other HTML elements.

The Editor is built from the ground up and specifically for React, so that you get a high-performance control which integrates tightly with your application and with the rest of the KendoReact components. The KendoReact Editor component is distributed through the kendo-react-editor NPM package.
