npm install --save react-editext

Or with yarn:

yarn add react-editext


EdiText is highly customizable. You can see more examples here. Here is a basic usage:

import React, { Component } from 'react' import EdiText from 'react-editext' class Example extends Component { onSave = val => { console.log('Edited Value -> ', val) } render () { return ( <div className="container"> <EdiText type="text" value='What is real? How do you define real?' onSave={this.onSave} /> </div> ) } }

You can customize almost everything based on your needs. Please navigate to Props section. I mean, just scroll down.
