Slate is a low-level editor
framework that helps you deal with difficult parts when building an
editor, such as events handlers, elements, formatting, commands,
rendering, serializing, normalizing, etc.

While you are trying to build your own editors, it still needs a lot of
skills to make something similar to Quill or
ProseMirror. This repository allows you to
build your editor right away with minimal slate knowledge.

@udecode/plate is built on top of slate to handle plugins and state
management for an optimal development experience. This repository comes
with a lot of plugins as elements, marks, serializers, normalizers,
queries, transforms, components and so on.

- 🏎 Simple Start

You only need one component to get started: <Plate>

- 🐻 State Management

zustand store is internally used

to support multiple editor states.

- 💅 Design System

The API is design system friendly. We provide a default design system

for quick start but you can plug-in your own one using a single


- 🔌 40+ Packages

We enforce separation of concerns by packaging each feature for build

optimization and versioning.

- 🛠 Extensible

All plugins accept extensible options and if you need to fork a

plugin, all its functions are exported.

- 📦 Tree-shaking / ES modules
- ✅ TypeScript types
- ✅ Unit tested with slate@0.63.0 and slate-react@0.65.2

The documentation is far from being complete and will be constantly
evolving (as will the packages).

Plate is a modular, multi-package, monorepo project. It consists of a
core package that creates the plugin system, based on which the plugin
packages are implemented.

Author's Note

@zbeyens: I'm building an app with an

editor like many of you and my first initiative was to spend months

to share this work, while hundreds of developers were coding and

debugging the exact same features. Open-source is a long-term

investment for a bug-free product and reducing technical debt, so

I can only encourage you to join this collaboration. Our goal is to

build a fully-featured editor.


🌟 Stars and 📥 Pull requests are welcome! Don't hesitate to share
your plugins here. Read our contributing guide to

Slack, we will take
the time to guide you.

Thanks goes to these wonderful people
