Remount is available through the npm package repository. React 18 is required.

# npm
npm install remount react react-dom
# yarn
yarn add remount react react-dom
  • Via yarn: yarn add remount
  • or npm: npm install remount


Let's start with any React component. Here's one:

const Greeter = ({ name }) => {
  return <div>Hello, {name}!</div>

Use define() to define custom elements. Let's define a <x-greeter> element:

import { define } from 'remount'

define({ 'x-greeter': Greeter })

You can now use it anywhere in your HTML! 💥

<x-greeter props-json='{"name":"John"}'></x-greeter>

Use cases

Some ideas on why you might want to consider Remount for your project:

Adding React to non-SPA apps
You can use React components on any page of a "regular" HTML site. Great for adding React to apps built on Rails or Phoenix.

💞 Interop with other frameworks
Remount lets you use your React components just like any other HTML element. This means you can use React with Vue, Angular, or any other DOM library/framework.

More features

  • JSON props (eg, <x-greeter props-json="{...}">) (docs)
  • Named attributes (eg, <x-greeter name="John">) (docs)
  • Uses Custom Elements API (when available)
  • Fallback to compatible API for other browers
  • Shadow DOM mode (when available)

Browser support

Remount supports all browsers that React 18 supports.

Custom Elements API# ("Web Components") will be used if it's available (Chrome/67+), and will fallback to a compatible API otherwise.
