Custom blocks

We are keeping a list of custom block repos here. See the documentation to find out more about adding your own block types.

Browser support

Sir Trevor is only tested on the following modern browsers:

  • IE11+ (
  • Chrome 51+
  • Safari 9+
  • Firefox 47+

ECMAScript 6 shims are bundled in by default; if the platform you wish to run on doesn't support ECMAScript 5 APIs you'll need to shim those yourself.

Sir Trevor uses The Guardian's scribe for rich text editing. Double check their browser support if your application relies on full RTE support.


See the roadmap and read a little about the philosophy guiding development.

Customising the way it looks

We use Sass for our styles, if you'd like to change the default styling please fork the repository and make changes to the Sass before recompiling.

Customising blocks

Block Types can also easily be added to the

object. You can also override the default block types (Text, Image, Tweet, Video, Quote, Heading & List) at any time. See the documentation to find out more about adding your own block types.


Tests are run as part of compilation process, which require

to be installed on the machine where you are running the compilation. If you're running Homebrew on OSX this can be installed via
brew install chromedriver

Before getting started please be sure to install the necessary dependencies via npm:

$ npm install

When completed, we have a couple of preset scripts:

$ npm run dev

This compiles for development, and watches source files to recompile when you change something.

$ npm test

Runs the linter and test suite, just like the CI server does.

$ npm run dist

Concatenates scripts, compiles the Sass, runs the Jasmine tests and minifies the project.

Please ensure any pull requests have relevant Jasmine tests (where applicable).
