Dante 3 - This is it! 🔥

Just another medium clone built on top of ProseMirror's / TipTap

Dante3 is a port from Dante2 (Draftjs) . This version is built on top of TipTap and reaches all Dante2's features with a shiny ultra mega super uber maintainable architecture.


See the demo at: dante-editor.dev

Why rewrite a new version of Dante?

The previous version (Dante2) was made on DraftJs, that's a facebook library to build WYSIWYG editor, I'd choose that technology because it implemented a very interesting data model and abstracted many parts of the heuristics implementation that Dante1 (the previous version) built as a naive implementation relying a lot on DOM manipulation, So Dante2 was great and is working on a ton of production websites. Sadly over the last years this library has not received much attention from maintainers. Among the ~700 unattended reported issues there are some that have become a deal breaker for me:

  • Bad mobile support.

  • ~1MB added to your bundle (immutablejs is heavy)

  • Not created for realtime collab.

My bet, TipTap

After shopping many editors libraries, I mean after tried to implement Dante on almost all of them (Trix, Editorjs, Quilljs, Slate, Prosemirror) I've TipTap library (which is based on Prosemirror)., I guess all editors libraries have their own flaws but after review it all TipTap is the best of it's class, very well designed/architectured, and I love the community around their ecosystem. So that's it.


  • Configurable and extensible extensions / plugins / components

  • Undo/redo.

  • Save Content as a data JSON/HTML structure.

  • Load Content as a data JSON/HTML structure.

  • Styled components Theme support (built in light/dark themes).

Block based content:

Dante editor can be extended with (React) components to, currently there are default components to be used as is:

  • Image upload for paste html.

  • Video embed.

  • Video Recorder.

  • Embed.

  • Divider.

  • Speech.

  • Giphy.


npm install dante3 or yarn add dante3


Component Based

  content={'hello world'}


Many configuration options and plugin usage can be found on the documentation page:

See dante-editor.dev



  • git clone https://github.com/michelson/dante


  • npm install or yarn install


  • npm dante3_build or yarn dante3_build

dev install:

  • lerna bootstrap

  • yarn dev


Dante3 is on beta, actively maintained, with all the features that Dante2 has. As is relying on TipTap (which is based on Prosemirror) which has a better browser support and mobile support. Also has realtime collab capabilities.


This repository now contains prior Dante versions, located in the packages folder. so Dante1*, Dante2 and Dante3 lives in the same repo.

  • Dante(1) is not maintained anymore.
