Step1# open your module system.xml from


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../Config/etc/system_file.xsd">
        <section id="yoursectionid" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="10" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
            <label>Custom Label</label>
            <group id="general" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="1" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
                <label>General Settings</label>
                <!-- WYSIWYG editor field code start-->
                <field id="editor_textarea" translate="label comment" sortOrder="1" type="editor" showInStore="1" showInDefault="1" >
                    <label>WYSIWYG Editor</label>
                <!-- WYSIWYG editor field code end-->

step #2 : Now we create Editor class in file Editor.php at app/code/NameSpace/ModuleName/Bloc/Adminhtml/System/Config folder where we create WYSIWYG editor element

namespace NameSpace\ModuleName\Block;

use Magento\Framework\Registry;
use Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context;
use Magento\Cms\Model\Wysiwyg\Config as WysiwygConfig;
use Magento\Framework\Data\Form\Element\AbstractElement;

class Editor extends \Magento\Config\Block\System\Config\Form\Field
     * @var  Registry
    protected $_coreRegistry;

     * @param Context       $context
     * @param WysiwygConfig $wysiwygConfig
     * @param array         $data
    public function __construct(
        Context $context,
        WysiwygConfig $wysiwygConfig,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_wysiwygConfig = $wysiwygConfig;
        parent::__construct($context, $data);

    protected function _getElementHtml(\Magento\Framework\Data\Form\Element\AbstractElement $element)
        // set wysiwyg for element
        // set configuration values 
        return parent::_getElementHtml($element);

Thanks :-)

  • I have just tried your code and the editor appears +1 but the insert image and variable don't work. Any ideas?

  • MagentoCmsModelTemplateFilterProvider $filterProvider $content = ‘{{media url=”wysiwyg/some_image.jpg”}}’; $contentGenerating = $this->_filterProvider->getPageFilter()->filter($content); echo $contentGenerating; //Generate HTML
