import { KeyUtils } from 'slate'

Utility functions that ship with Slate that may be useful for certain use cases.

Key Utils


create() => String

Create a new key using the current key generator.


resetGenerator() => Void

Resets Slate's internal key generating function to its default state. This is useful for server-side rendering, or anywhere you want to ensure fresh, deterministic creation of keys.


setGenerator(generator: Function) => Void

Allows you to specify your own key generating function, instead of using Slate's built-in default generator which simply uses auto-incrementing number strings. (eg. '0', '1', '2', ...)

This will act globally on all uses of the Slate dependency.
