Documentation: Modules Edit on Github


Modules allow Quill’s behavior and functionality to be customized. Several officially supported modules are available to pick and choose from, some with additional configuration options and APIs. Refer to their respective documentation pages for more details.

To enable a module, simply include it in Quill’s configuration.

var quill = new Quill('#editor', {
  modules: {
    'history': {          // Enable with custom configurations
      'delay': 2500,
      'userOnly': true
    'syntax': true        // Enable with default configuration

The Clipboard, Keyboard, and History modules are required by Quill and do not need to be included explictly, but may be configured like any other module.


Modules may also be extended and re-registered, replacing the original module. Even required modules may be re-registered and replaced.

var Clipboard = Quill.import('modules/clipboard');
var Delta = Quill.import('delta');

class PlainClipboard extends Clipboard {
  convert(html = null) {
    if (typeof html === 'string') {
      this.container.innerHTML = html;
    return new Delta().insert(this.container.innerText);

Quill.register('modules/clipboard', PlainClipboard, true);

// Will be created with instance of PlainClipboard
var quill = new Quill('#editor');

Note: This particular example was selected to show what is possible. It is often easier to just use an API or configuration the existing module exposes. In this example, the existing Clipboard’s addMatcher API is suitable for most paste customization scenarios.
