I found so many articles about how to use wysiwyg editor in admin pages, and I was wondering if I could use it in the frontend templates. if yes, please tell me how. I'm using magento 2.1.5.


In frontend suppose we want wysiwyg-editor on a textarea and textarea having id : description

<textarea id="description" name="textarea_name"></textarea>

and use below script to load jquery and wysiwyg tiny_mce and assign to #description

    ], function(jQuery){

    var config = '', 

    jQuery.extend(config, {
        settings: {
            theme_advanced_buttons1 : 'bold,italic,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,|,',
            theme_advanced_buttons2: null,
            theme_advanced_buttons3: null,
            theme_advanced_buttons4: null,
            theme_advanced_statusbar_location: null
        files_browser_window_url: false
    editor = new tinyMceWysiwygSetup(

As per your's need you can update wysiwyg tiny_mce configuration. above one just an example.
