    React Helmet

    npm Version codecov.io Build Status Dependency Status PRs Welcome

    This reusable React component will manage all of your changes to the document head.

    Helmet takes plain HTML tags and outputs plain HTML tags. It's dead simple, and React beginner friendly.

    Example

    import React from "react";
    import {Helmet} from "react-helmet";
     
    class Application extends React.Component {
      render () {
        return (
            <div className="application">
                <Helmet>
                    <meta charSet="utf-8" />
                    <title>My Title</title>
                    <link rel="canonical" href="http://mysite.com/example" />
                </Helmet>
                ...
            </div>
        );
      }
    };

    Nested or latter components will override duplicate changes:

    <Parent>
        <Helmet>
            <title>My Title</title>
            <meta name="description" content="Helmet application" />
        </Helmet>
     
        <Child>
            <Helmet>
                <title>Nested Title</title>
                <meta name="description" content="Nested component" />
            </Helmet>
        </Child>
    </Parent>

    outputs:

    <head>
        <title>Nested Title</title>
        <meta name="description" content="Nested component">
    </head>

    See below for a full reference guide.

    Features

    • Supports all valid head tags: title, base, meta, link, script, noscript, and style tags.
    • Supports attributes for body, html and title tags.
    • Supports server-side rendering.
    • Nested components override duplicate head changes.
    • Duplicate head changes are preserved when specified in the same component (support for tags like "apple-touch-icon").
    • Callback for tracking DOM changes.

    Compatibility

    Helmet 5 is fully backward-compatible with previous Helmet releases, so you can upgrade at any time without fear of breaking changes. We encourage you to update your code to our more semantic API, but please feel free to do so at your own pace.

    Installation

    Yarn:

    yarn add react-helmet

    npm:

    npm install --save react-helmet

    Server Usage

    To use on the server, call Helmet.renderStatic() after ReactDOMServer.renderToString or ReactDOMServer.renderToStaticMarkup to get the head data for use in your prerender.

    Because this component keeps track of mounted instances, you have to make sure to call renderStatic on server, or you'll get a memory leak.

    ReactDOMServer.renderToString(<Handler />);
    const helmet = Helmet.renderStatic();

    This helmet instance contains the following properties:

    • base
    • bodyAttributes
    • htmlAttributes
    • link
    • meta
    • noscript
    • script
    • style
    • title

    Each property contains toComponent() and toString() methods. Use whichever is appropriate for your environment. For attributes, use the JSX spread operator on the object returned by toComponent(). E.g:

    As string output

    const html = `
        <!doctype html>
        <html ${helmet.htmlAttributes.toString()}>
            <head>
                ${helmet.title.toString()}
                ${helmet.meta.toString()}
                ${helmet.link.toString()}
            </head>
            <body ${helmet.bodyAttributes.toString()}>
                <div id="content">
                    // React stuff here
                </div>
            </body>
        </html>
    `;

    As React components

    function HTML () {
        const htmlAttrs = helmet.htmlAttributes.toComponent();
        const bodyAttrs = helmet.bodyAttributes.toComponent();
     
        return (
            <html {...htmlAttrs}>
                <head>
                    {helmet.title.toComponent()}
                    {helmet.meta.toComponent()}
                    {helmet.link.toComponent()}
                </head>
                <body {...bodyAttrs}>
                    <div id="content">
                        // React stuff here
                    </div>
                </body>
            </html>
        );
    }
