Getting Started


View the full Installation Docs

  1. Ensure that you have React 17 or later installed (Material UI V5 requires React 17 or 18)

  2. Install Peer Dependencies (Material UI V5)

npm install @mui/material @mui/icons-material @emotion/react @emotion/styled
  1. Install material-react-table
npm install material-react-table

@tanstack/react-table, @tanstack/react-virtual, and @tanstack/match-sorter-utils are internal dependencies, so you do NOT need to install them yourself.

import React, { useMemo, useRef, useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import { MaterialReactTable } from 'material-react-table';

const data = [
    name: 'John',
    age: 30,
    name: 'Sara',
    age: 25,

export default function App() {
  const columns = useMemo(
    () => [
        accessorKey: 'name', //simple recommended way to define a column
        header: 'Name',
        muiTableHeadCellProps: { sx: { color: 'green' } }, //optional custom props
        Cell: ({ cell }) => <span>{cell.getValue()}</span>, //optional custom cell render
        accessorFn: (row) => row.age, //alternate way
        id: 'age', //id required if you use accessorFn instead of accessorKey
        header: 'Age',
        Header: () => <i>Age</i>, //optional custom header render

  //optionally, you can manage any/all of the table state yourself
  const [rowSelection, setRowSelection] = useState({});

  useEffect(() => {
    //do something when the row selection changes
  }, [rowSelection]);

  //Or, optionally, you can get a reference to the underlying table instance
  const tableInstanceRef = useRef(null);

  const someEventHandler = () => {
    //read the table state during an event from the table instance ref

  return (
      enableColumnOrdering //enable some features
      enablePagination={false} //disable a default feature
      onRowSelectionChange={setRowSelection} //hoist internal state to your own state (optional)
      state={{ rowSelection }} //manage your own state, pass it back to the table (optional)
      tableInstanceRef={tableInstanceRef} //get a reference to the underlying table instance (optional)
