Important information

We permanently moved this project to the main Handsontable repository at

It is still available under the same name in npm: @handsontable/react, so you don't have to update your dependency configuration.

Handsontable for React

This is the official wrapper of Handsontable data grid for React.
It provides data binding, data validation, filtering, sorting and more.

npm npm Build status


Use npm to install this wrapper together with Handsontable.

npm install handsontable @handsontable/react

You can load it directly from jsDelivr as well.

The component will be available as Handsontable.react.HotTable.

@import '~handsontable/dist/handsontable.full.css';

React Component

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { HotTable } from '@handsontable/react';

  constructor(props) {
    super(props); = [
      ['', 'Tesla', 'Mercedes', 'Toyota', 'Volvo'],
      ['2019', 10, 11, 12, 13],
      ['2020', 20, 11, 14, 13],
      ['2021', 30, 15, 12, 13]

Browser compatibility

Handsontable is compatible with modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Edge. It also supports Internet Explorer 9 to 11 but with limited performance.


This wrapper is released under the MIT license but under the hood it uses Handsontable, which is dual-licensed. You can either use it for free in all your non-commercial projects or purchase a commercial license.

License key

The license key is obligatory since Handsontable 7.0.0 (released in March 2019).

If you use Handsontable for purposes not intended toward monetary compensation such as, but not limited to, teaching, academic research, evaluation, testing and experimentation, pass a phrase 'non-commercial-and-evaluation', as presented below.

You can pass it in the settings object:

settings: {
  data: data,
  rowHeaders: true,
  colHeaders: true,
  licenseKey: 'non-commercial-and-evaluation'

Alternatively, you can pass it to a licenseKey prop:

<HotTable settings={settings} licenseKey="00000-00000-00000-00000-00000" />

If, on the other hand, you use Handsontable in a project that supports your commercial activity, then you must purchase the license key at

The license key is validated in an offline mode. No connection is made to any server. Learn more about how it works.
