I want to run a function when a user edits the content of a div with contenteditable attribute. What's the equivalent of an onchange event?

I'm using jQuery so any solutions that uses jQuery are preferred. Thanks!

You can try using the code given below:

$('body').on('focus', '[contenteditable]', function() {

    const $this = $(this);

    $this.data('before', $this.html());

}).on('blur keyup paste input', '[contenteditable]', function() {

    const $this = $(this);

    if ($this.data('before') !== $this.html()) {

        $this.data('before', $this.html());




For the project, you can refer to this: https://github.com/balupton/html5edit
