Getting started with FOSCKEditorBundle

2.x version

Getting started with FOSCKEditorBundle


The bundle integrates CKEditor into Symfony via the Form Component. It automatically registers a new type called ckeditor which can be fully configured. This type extends the textarea one, meaning all textarea options are available.

Here, an example where we customize the CKEditor config:

use FOS\CKEditorBundle\Form\Type\CKEditorType;

$builder->add('field', CKEditorType::class, array(
    'config' => array(
        'uiColor' => '#ffffff',


To install the bundle, please, read the Installation documentation.
