Editor.js Digest
Hi there! This is the first message in our newborn digest. There was no way to subscribe to Editor.js news for a while, but it’s time to change it. We’ll write you about product updates, feature overviews, and some other interesting and useful stuff. Let’s go!

Multiple Toolbox items
We’ve just released v.2.25 which includes a cool improvement of the Tools API. Now you can display several different variants of the single Tool in the Toolbox! 🎉
For example, the Heading tool could display the three most popular types of headings, or the List tool could display both Bulleted and Numbered variants. That could improve the end-user experience. Here’s how it looks:
Read more about how to configure the Toolbox that way in our feature overview.
The new API methods
There is a single API change. The Blocks API now has the composeBlockData() method. For example, if we want to know what output format is used by the “X” tool, this method will return such data. Just like if we’ll save the empty block of that type.
Upcoming updates
We’re working on the CodeX Icon Pack — a package that will contain all icons used by the Editor.js and our plugins. Also, it will contain a set of other icons that could be useful for third-party plugin developers.
In the next updates, the Block Tunes menu will become vertical as well as the Toolbox.
Same time we’re working on the Collaborative Editing feature as well as a huge amount of other updates in order of Editor.js 3.0. 🤫
