Remove TinyMCE Script

The first step is to remove all TinyMCE dependencies and code usage from your project. The two most common scripts that you have included are the following.

<!-- TinyMCE script file. -->
<script src='https://cloud.tinymce.com/stable/tinymce.min.js'></script>

// TinyMCE initialization script.
tinymce.init({
  selector: 'textarea',
  toolbar: ['undo redo | bold italic underline']
});

Add Froala Editor

Once you've removed all Tiny dependencies, you can start adding the Froala Editor files by doing the following steps

1. Include the CSS files required in the HEAD tag.

<!-- Include Font Awesome CSS. -->
<link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.4.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<!-- include editor style. -->
<link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor@2.9.1/css/froala_editor.pkgd.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor@2.9.1/css/froala_style.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

2. Add the JS files at the end of the BODY

<!-- Include jQuery dep. -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

<!-- Include editor JS files. -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor@2.9.1/js/froala_editor.pkgd.min.js"></script>

3. Call the editor initialization.

$('textarea').froalaEditor({
  toolbarbuttons: ['undo', 'redo', '|', 'bold', 'italic', 'underline']
});

Basic initialization example

Once you've followed the steps above, your HTML page should look similar to the next example.

<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

    <!-- Include Font Awesome CSS. -->
    <link href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.4.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    <!-- Include editor styles. -->
    <link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor@2.9.1/css/froala_editor.pkgd.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor@2.9.1/css/froala_style.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
  </head>

  <body>
    <!-- Create a tag that we will use as the editable area. -->
    <!-- You can use a div tag as well. -->
    <textarea></textarea>

    <!-- Include the Jquery dep. -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

    <!-- Add editor JS files. -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/froala-editor@2.9.1/js/froala_editor.pkgd.min.js"></script>

    <!-- Initialize Froala Editor. -->
    <script>
      $(function(){
        $('textarea').froalaEditor();
      });
    </script>
  </body>
</html>
