            class: Header,
            config: {

    return (
            <h1>Create Your Post</h1>

This React component does not look alright to me.

  • You should initialise the Editor, after rendering your component.
  • onClick={Save()} is calling Save on render, not on click

it is calling Save function which have saving code.

onClick={Save} will call Save on click, but onClick={Save()} is going to call Save on render and nothing on click as Save is not returning anything

I agreed with @mupkoo that your ‘const editor = new EditorJs({holder:‘editorjs’,…’ is executed before ‘<div id=“editorjs”…’ is rendered, so not such element with the id can provide EditorJs’s constructor.
