Add React Form Renderer

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer

Optionally you can install one of provided mappers:

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/mui-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/mui-component-mapper
$ npm install @data-driven-forms/pf4-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/pf4-component-mapper
$ npm install @data-driven-forms/blueprint-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/blueprint-component-mapper
$ npm install @data-driven-forms/suir-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/suir-component-mapper
$ npm install @data-driven-forms/ant-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/ant-component-mapper
$ npm install @data-driven-forms/carbon-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/carbon-component-mapper

Component libraries in mappers are external dependencies. Make sure to install them in your bundles.


In order to Data Driven Forms in your component you need the renderer and a component mapper, which provides component mapper and form template.

import React from 'react';
import { FormRenderer, componentTypes } from '@data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer';
import { componentMapper, FormTemplate } from '@data-driven-forms/pf4-component-mapper';

const schema = {
  fields: [{
    component: componentTypes.TEXT_FIELD,
    name: 'name',
    label: 'Your name'

const Form = () => (

Custom mapper

You can also use custom mapper.

import React from 'react';
import { FormRenderer, componentTypes, useFieldApi } from '@data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer';

const TextField = props => {
  const {label, input, meta, ...rest} = useFieldApi(props)
  return (
      <label htmlForm={input.name}>{label}</label>
      <input {...input} {...rest} id={input.name}/>
      {meta.error && <p>{meta.error}</p>}

const componentMapper = {
  [componentTypes.TEXT_FIELD]: TextField,
  'custom-type': TextField

const schema = {
  fields: [{
    component: componentTypes.TEXT_FIELD,
    name: 'name',
    label: 'Your name'
    type: 'search',

For more information, please check this page.

Mappers can be also generated by using yarn generate-template command.

Basic provided components

Data Driven Forms supports all kinds of component, basic set is consisted of:

Any other components can be added to mapper and renderer with the form renderer. Existing components can be also overriden.

Development setup

Data Driven Forms is a monorepo that uses Lerna and yarn workspaces, so you can use all its commands as well.

  1. Install
yarn install
  1. Build
yarn build
  1. Run a package

Each package has a small playground package/demo, where you can test your changes.

cd packages/pf3-component-mapper
yarn start
  1. How to clean?
yarn lerna clean # will delete all node_modules

All packages are linked together by default, so if you run a yarn build in a package, all other packages are updated to the latest version of that package.


Tests can be ran from the core folder or from specific packages.

yarn test

yarn test packages/pf3-component-mapper


Data Driven Forms uses Semantic Release


[type]([package]): message

fix(pf3): title accepts node


  • feat: a new feature, will trigger new _.X._ release
  • fix: a fix, will trigger new _._.X release


  • Please describe which package is being changed pf3, renderer, ...

Please, do not use Semantic Release, if you update only the demo.

All packages are releasing together and they share the version number.

Changes to documentation

If your changes influence API or add new features, you should describe these new options in the react-renderer-demo repository. Thanks!
