tag attr is used to tell on which tag the editor is initialized.
There are special tags: a, button, img, input. Do not use them in FroalaEditor component. To initialize the editor on a special tag, use FroalaEditorA, FroalaEditorButton, FroalaEditorImg and FroalaEditorInput components.
You can pass editor options as component attribute (optional).
You can pass any existing Froala option. Consult the Froala documentation to view the list of all the available options:
config={{  placeholderText: ‘Edit Your Content Here!’,  charCounterCount: false}}
Aditional option is used:

immediateReactModelUpdate: (default: false) This option updates the React model as soon as a key is released in the editor. Note that it may affect performances.

Events and Methods
Events can be passed in with the options, with a key events and object where the key is the event name and the value is the callback function.
config={{  placeholder: “Edit Me”,  events : {    ‘froalaEditor.focus’ : function(e, editor) {      console.log(editor.selection.get());    }  }}}
Using the editor instance from the arguments of the callback you can call editor methods as described in the method docs.
Froala events are described in the events docs.
The WYSIWYG HTML editor content model.
model = {this.state.model}
Two way binding:
import React from ‘react’; class EditorComponent extends React.Component {  constructor () {    super();     this.handleModelChange = this.handleModelChange.bind(this);     this.state = {      model: ‘Example text’    };  }   handleModelChange: function(model) {    this.setState({      model: model    });  }   render () {    return   }}
To achieve one way binding and pass only the initial editor content, simply do not pass onModelChange attribute.
Use the content in other places:

Special tags
You can also use the editor on img, button, input and a tags:

The model must be an object containing the attributes for your special tags. Example:
constructor () {  super();   this.handleModelChange = this.handleModelChange.bind(this);   this.state = {    model: {src: ‘path/to/image.jpg’}  };}

The model can contain a special attribute named innerHTML which inserts innerHTML in the element: If you are using ‘button’ tag, you can specify the button text like this:

this.state = {  model: {innerHTML: ‘Click Me’}};
As the button text is modified by the editor, the innerHTML attribute from buttonModel model will be modified too.
Specific option for special tags

reactIgnoreAttrs: (default: null) This option is an array of attributes that you want to ignore when the editor updates the froalaModel:

config: { reactIgnoreAttrs: [‘class’, ‘id’]},
Manual Instantiation
Gets the functionality to operate on the editor: create, destroy and get editor instance. Use it if you want to manually initialize the editor.
handleManualController: function(initControls) {  //…}
The object received by the function will contain the following methods:

initialize: Call this method to initialize the Froala Editor
destroy: Call this method to destroy the Froala Editor
getEditor: Call this method to retrieve the editor that was created. This method will return null if the editor was not yet created
