This article provides a step-by-step introduction to get started with Syncfusion React UI components.

Prerequisites

System requirements for Syncfusion React UI components

Create the React application

To set-up a React application, choose any of the following ways. The best and easiest way is to use the create-react-app. It sets up your development environment in JavaScript and improvise your application for production. Refer to the installation instructions of create-react-app.

npx create-react-app my-app
cd my-app
npm start

or

yarn create react-app my-app
cd my-app
yarn start

To set-up a React application in TypeScript environment, run the following command.

Copied to clipboard
npx create-react-app my-app --template typescript
cd my-app
npm start

Besides using the npx package runner tool, also create an application from the npm init. To begin with the npm init, upgrade the npm version to npm 6+.

Copied to clipboard
npm init react-app my-app
cd my-app
npm start

Add Syncfusion React packages

Once you have created the React application, install the required Syncfusion React component package in the application. All Syncfusion React (Essential JS 2) packages are published on the npmjs.com public registry. So, choose the component that you want to install.

In this quick start article, the Grid component used as an example. To install the Grid component package, use the following command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-react-grids --save

or

Copied to clipboard
yarn add @syncfusion/ej2-react-grids

You can also checkout the installation section to know the different ways of installing the packages.

Import the Syncfusion CSS styles

After installing the Syncfusion component packages in your application, import the required themes based on the components used.

Syncfusion React component comes with built-in themes, which are available in installed packages. It is quite simple to adapt the Syncfusion React components based on the application style by referring to any of the built-in themes. Let’s import the Material theme for the Grid component.

Import the CSS styles for the Grid component and it’s dependencies in the src/App.css. file.

@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css';  
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-calendars/styles/material.css';  
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns/styles/material.css';  
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css';  
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css';
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-grids/styles/material.css";

You can checkout the Themes topic to know more about built-in themes and different ways to refer themes in React application.

Add Syncfusion component to the application

Start adding the required components to the application. Let’s add the Grid component in the src/App.js file using the following code.

  1. Before adding the Grid component to your markup, import the Grid component in the src/App.js file.

import { ColumnDirective, ColumnsDirective, GridComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-grids';
  1. Then, to display the Grid with records, add the Grid component and bind the dataSource to it. Here, we have mapped the simple data as the dataSource.
Copied to clipboard
import { ColumnDirective, ColumnsDirective, GridComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-grids';
import './App.css';

function App() {
  const data = [
    {
      OrderID: 10248, CustomerID: 'VINET', EmployeeID: 5, OrderDate: new Date(8364186e5),
      ShipName: 'Vins et alcools Chevalier', ShipCity: 'Reims', ShipAddress: '59 rue de l Abbaye',
      ShipRegion: 'CJ', ShipPostalCode: '51100', ShipCountry: 'France', Freight: 32.38, Verified: !0
    },
    {
      OrderID: 10249, CustomerID: 'TOMSP', EmployeeID: 6, OrderDate: new Date(836505e6),
      ShipName: 'Toms Spezialitäten', ShipCity: 'Münster', ShipAddress: 'Luisenstr. 48',
      ShipRegion: 'CJ', ShipPostalCode: '44087', ShipCountry: 'Germany', Freight: 11.61, Verified: !1
    },
    {

      ShipName: 'Hanari Carnes', ShipCity: 'Rio de Janeiro', ShipAddress: 'Rua do Paço, 67',
      ShipRegion: 'RJ', ShipPostalCode: '05454-876', ShipCountry: 'Brazil', Freight: 65.83, Verified: !0
    }
  ];
  return (
    <GridComponent dataSource={data}>
      <ColumnsDirective>
          <ColumnDirective field='OrderID' width='100' textAlign="Right"/>
          <ColumnDirective field='CustomerID' width='100'/>

    </GridComponent>
  );
}

export default App;

        }
    ];
    return (<GridComponent dataSource={data}>
      <ColumnsDirective>
          <ColumnDirective field='OrderID' width='100' textAlign="Right"/>
          <ColumnDirective field='CustomerID' width='100'/>
