Collect statistics on the use of open source

TOAST UI ImageEditor applies Google Analytics (GA) to collect statistics on the use of open source, in order to identify how widely TOAST UI ImageEditor is used throughout the world. It also serves as important index to determine the future course of projects. location.hostname (e.g. > β€œui.toast.com") is to be collected and the sole purpose is nothing but to measure statistics on the usage. To disable GA, use the following usageStatistics option when creating the instance.

var options = {
    usageStatistics: false

var imageEditor = new tui.ImageEditor('#tui-image-editor-container', options);

Or, include tui-code-snippet(v1.4.0 or later) and then immediately write the options as follows:

tui.usageStatistics = false;

πŸ’Ύ Install

The TOAST UI products can be installed by using the package manager or downloading the source directly. However, we highly recommend using the package manager.

Via Package Manager

You can find TOAST UI producs via npm and bower package managers. Install by using the commands provided by each package manager. When using npm, be sure Node.js is installed in the environment.


1. ImageEditor installation

$ npm install --save tui-image-editor # Latest version
$ npm install --save tui-image-editor@<version> # Specific version
2. fabric.js installation

And you should add postInstall script to your package.json. This process will be removed when fabric.js updated to v2.7.0 and bundled with TOAST UI ImageEditor together.

    // ...
    "scripts": {
        // ...
        "postInstall": "npm install --no-save --no-optional fabric@^1.6.7"
    // ...

Or you can add fabric as dependency. But there is some steps to be installed well.


$ bower install tui-image-editor # Latest version
$ bower install tui-image-editor#<tag> # Specific version

Via Contents Delivery Network (CDN)

TOAST UI products are available over the CDN powered by TOAST Cloud.

<script src="https://uicdn.toast.com/tui-image-editor/latest/tui-image-editor.js"></script>

If you want to use a specific version, use the tag name instead of latest in the URL.

β”œβ”€ latest/
