// It is important to import the Editor which accepts plugins.
import Editor from 'draft-js-plugins-editor'; // eslint-disable-line import/no-unresolved
import createHashtagPlugin from 'draft-js-hashtag-plugin'; // eslint-disable-line import/no-unresolved
import React from 'react';

// Creates an Instance. At this step, a configuration object can be passed in
// as an argument.
const hashtagPlugin = createHashtagPlugin();

// The Editor accepts an array of plugins. In this case, only the hashtagPlugin
// is passed in, although it is possible to pass in multiple plugins.
const MyEditor = ({ editorState, onChange }) => (
  <Editor
    editorState={editorState}
    onChange={onChange}
    plugins={[hashtagPlugin]}
  />
);

export default MyEditor;

Importing the default styles

The plugin ships with a default styling available at this location in the installed package:  node_modules/draft-js-hashtag-plugin/lib/plugin.css

Webpack Usage

  • 1. Install Webpack loaders:  npm i style-loader css-loader --save-dev
  • 2. Add the below section to Webpack config (if your config already has a loaders array, simply add the below loader object to your existing list.
    module.exports = {
      module: {
        loaders: [
          {
            test: /plugin\.css$/,
            loaders: [
              'style', 'css',
            ],
          },
        ],
      },
    };
    
  • 3. Add the below import line to your component to tell Webpack to inject the style to your component.
    import 'draft-js-hashtag-plugin/lib/plugin.css'; // eslint-disable-line import/no-unresolved
    
  • 4. Restart Webpack.
