Build status

react-intl-phraseapp is an addon for react-intl that lets you connect localized react applications to the Phrase In-Context Editor.


To use react-intl-phraseapp with your application you have to:


You can find a demo project on GitHub.


via NPM

npm install react-intl-phraseapp

Build from source

You can also build it directly from source to get the latest and greatest:

npm run dist


npm install


let config = {
  projectId: '<YOUR_PROJECT_ID>',
  phraseEnabled: true,
  prefix: "[[__",
  suffix: "__]]",
  fullReparse: true

You can find the Project-ID in the Project overview in the PhraseApp Translation Center

JavaScript snippet

Add the following snippet to your react app.

import {initializePhraseAppEditor} from 'react-intl-phraseapp'

let config = {
  projectId: '<YOUR_PROJECT_ID>',
  phraseEnabled: true,
  prefix: "[[__",
  suffix: "__]]",
  fullReparse: true


If this does not work for you, you can also integrate the JavaScript snippet manually.

Import from react-intl-phraseapp rather than from react-intl

Find all imports of FormattedMessage, and change the source from react-intl to react-intl-phraseapp.

import {FormattedMessage} from 'react-intl-phraseapp'

Browser support

This library might not work out of the box for some older browser or IE11. We recommend to add Babel to the build pipeline if those browser need to be supported.

How does it work

The library inherits common components of the react-intl packages. In case you enabled Phrase by calling initializePhraseAppEditor the behaviour of the components will be changed.


Run unit tests using jest:
