Rich Text Editor in React.js with more Powerful features

I was struggling to implement an editor in my blog Application i have tried ck editor and couple of other editors and most of them are buggy and not working properly and the interface was also not so much good

Finally I found editor.js
The best Editor I found Ever


It is highly maintanable and you can customize every component inside each data you enter is parsed into json in a block of array each content has it's own type and id
content:"This is a Heding",

this is the sample format of data that is getting from the editor
whenever you want to show data in an html page you have to use a parser which we will deeply in the following section
the parser is not fully functional for table and button components this parser will not parse buttons and tables but it won't cause any errors while displaying in html
instead you can create your custom parser i will write the code in the last section how to handle that

if the new version of editor.js is not working don't worry about that we will fix that
here i am showing a screenshot of the blog
