Installation of CKEditor5 Classic

we need to install two Ckeditor packages to successfully implemented the CKEditor, this are the two packages listed below.

  • @ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular
  • @ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic

To install the first package, run this code in your terminal. this will pick up the latest version of @ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular.

npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular

or you can run and install specific version.

// npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular@Version
npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular@2.0.2

Now, run the installation of the second package, run this in your terminal. his will pick up the latest version of @ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic.

npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic

you can run and install specific version.

//npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic@Version
npm install --save @ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic@29.2.0

refer to the specific version and see the Link provided. make sure to install the version package which is compatible of the version or your angular project.


Now, add CKEditorModule to app.module files.

import { CKEditorModule } from '@ckeditor/ckeditor5-angular';

@NgModule( {
    imports: [
        // ...
    // ...
} )

Import the ClassicEditor in your angular component or in your typescript file and assign  it to a public property to make it accessible

import * as ClassicEditor from '@ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic';

@Component( {
    // ...
} )
export class MyComponent {
    public Editor = ClassicEditor;
    // ...

Finally, use the <ckeditor> tag in the template to run the rich text editor:

<ckeditor [editor]="Editor" data="<p>Hello, world!</p>"></ckeditor>



During implementing this packages and you are facing like this issue bellow. refer the solution on how to fixed it.

Cannot find module ‘@ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic’ or its corresponding type declarations.


first create a file and name it typings.d.ts and put it inside the component folder or any where in the project. And copy and paste this code in that file.

declare module '@ckeditor/ckeditor5-build-classic' {
  const ClassicEditorBuild: any;

  export = ClassicEditorBuild;
