Bootstrap Editor SDK

This programmer-friendly version of Bootstrap Editor is ideal to any integrations of the plugin with your own product or web application.

You can evoke Bootstrap Editor from your own code via the public API to alter the specified context, and then receive the result of editing from your code, or let Bootstrap Editor refresh the content on the page.

Note. If you want to install Bootstrap Editor in a specific CMS that supports CKEditor or TinyMCE, you don't need to integrate the JS-version. You should take a look at the Bootstrap Editor verson that runs as a CKEditor/TinyMCE plugin.
