Components demo


PrimeReact is available at npm, if you have an existing application run the following command to download it to your project.

npm install primereact --save
npm install primeicons --save


//import {ComponentName} from 'primereact/{componentname}';
import {Dialog} from 'primereact/dialog';
import {Accordion,AccordionTab} from 'primereact/accordion';


Majority of PrimeReact components (95%) are native and there are some exceptions having 3rd party dependencies such as Google Maps for GMap.

In addition, components require PrimeIcons for icons, classNames package to manage style classes and react-transition-group for animations.

dependencies: {
    "react": "^16.0.0",
    "react-dom": "^16.0.0",
    "react-transition-group": "^2.2.1",
    "classnames": "^2.2.5",
    "primeicons": "^2.0.0"


The css dependencies are as follows, note that you may change the theme with another one of your choice.


If you are using a bundler such as webpack with a css loader you may also import them to your main application component, an example from create-react-app would be.

import 'primereact/resources/themes/nova-light/theme.css';
import 'primereact/resources/primereact.min.css';
import 'primeicons/primeicons.css';


An example application based on create-react-app is available at github.


Typescript Typescript is fully supported as type definition files are provided in the npm package of PrimeReact. A sample typescript-primereact application is available as well at github.
