React4xp Lib

Server-side React rendering integrated with XP components

This (lib-react4xp) is a library of services and utility functions that makes Enonic XP play nice with React. Specifically, it provides out of the box:

  • XP controller functions that make it easy to blend React into XP components with minimal boilerplate code,
  • Serve pre-compiled (*) React components and their dependency scripts to the browser, as well as providing a client-side rendering wrapper and (optionally and adjustably) React and ReactDOM themselves,
  • Automatic dependency/chunk handling, and response headers that ensure efficient client-side caching of components and dependencies.
  • Server-side rendering (SSR): optional and configurable (*)


Note: this requires a specific compiled file structure in runtime. This library does not provide that - but there are companion NPM packages tailored for making the build process seamless and easy.

See the documentation for complete install instructions - or use the react4xp-starter in Enonic Market for an easier start. Internet Explorer support: no (but Edge: yes).

      • 7.6.0
  15. 1.7.0

    • Feature: Object.assign is polyfilled in the nashorn SSR engine

    • Compatibility:

      • 7.6.0
  16. 1.6.0

    • Bugfix: nashorn caching is no longer the default for SSR, but must be switched on in react4xp.properties if needed (but it's recommended to keep it switched off). This requires using this lib in combination with npm package react4xp 1.5.7 or later.
    • Improvements to react component error handling and reporting: error message containers are trimmed down; messages and solution tips are now moved to messages in the browser console. Server-side errors during .renderPageContributions will have containers of their own.
    • When using "custom flow" (.renderBody and .renderPageContributions), an optional request parameter can be added, the same way as in .render. This adds handling of XP view mode and error reporting: always-SSR rendering inside Content Studio (as is recommended). And in live view mode, server-side error messages are withheld from the error containers.
    • Error message containers are rendered for .renderPageContributions problems.
    • Compatibility:
