State

import { State } from 'slate'

A State is the top-level representation of data in Slate, containing both a Document and a Selection. It's what you need to paste into the Slate <Editor> to render something onto the page.

All transforms to the document and selection are also performed through the state object, so that they can stay in sync, and be propagated to its internal history of undo/redo state.

For convenience, in addition to transforms, many of the Selection and Document properties are exposed as proxies on the State object.

Properties

State({
  document: Document,
  selection: Selection
})
