React menu for Magento 2 Knockout-based frontend

This module offers a React-based menu to replace the existing top navigation of Magento itself. Please note that this is an experiment to show how easy it is to build React components. It could be used on live sites, but comes without warranties.


Before you install this module, make sure to install the Yireo_React module first. An install via composer should pick this up right away.

Use the following commands to install this module into Magento 2:

composer config repositories.yireo-react vcs
composer config repositories.yireo-react-menu vcs
composer require yireo/magento2-react-menu:dev-master

bin/magento module:enable Yireo_React Yireo_ReactMenu
bin/magento setup:upgrade

Make sure to read the Usage section below as well.


This module adds an additional menu to the Magento 2 frontend, based upon ReactJS, and it removes the old code. This requires the source to be compiled into generic AMD code that works with RequireJS. To compile the source, enter the view/frontend/ folder from a shell. Next, install all packages listed in package.json:

npm install

After this, you should be able to modify the files view/frontend/react_source and compile them to browser code using Gulp:

gulp build

If you want to develop this code yourself, you can also run:

gulp watch

Current issues

Gulp is used instead of Webpack, because you don't need most of the cool stuff that Webpack offers: The webserver is not going be to Node-based, but is the Magento webserver instead. Because of this, hot module reloading can not be used.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
