Creates a layer from the specified element with the ability to edit the content.


The Editable module is designed for easy and quick editing of small texts. This is not a full-featured text editor. So, everything is made for the sake of simplicity and reliability: pasting only plain-text and Enter key does not cause a line break.

Let's look how to edit a heading tag.

<h1 data-kube="editable" placeholder="Enter text here...">...</h1>

Use API inside modules

    $K.add('module', 'mymodule', {
        init: function(app, context)
            this.app = app;
        show: function()
            // all editable on the page

            // for specified editable with ID or data-name

How to add the ID or data-name for editable:

<div data-name="myeditable" data-kube="editable">...</div>

// or ID
<div id="myeditable" data-kube="editable">...</div>

Use API from outside

//  all editable on the page
<button onclick="$K.api('editable.stop');">Stop</button>

// for specified editable with ID or data-name
<button onclick="$K.api('editable.myeditable.start');">Start</button>
