JSON Forms - More Forms. Less Code

Complex forms in the blink of an eye

JSON Forms eliminates the tedious task of writing fully-featured forms by hand by leveraging the capabilities of JSON, JSON Schema and Javascript.

React Package

This is the JSON Forms React package which provides the necessary bindings for React. It uses JSON Forms Core.

You can combine the react package with any react-based renderer set you want, for example the Material Renderers or the Vanilla Renderers.

See the official documentation and the JSON Forms React seed repository for examples on how to integrate JSON Forms with your application.

Check https://www.npmjs.com/search?q=%40jsonforms for all published JSON Forms packages.


Use the JsonForms component to render a form for your data.

Mandatory props:

  • data: any - the data to show
  • renderers: JsonFormsRendererRegistryEntry[] - the React renderer set to use

Optional props:

  • schema: JsonSchema - the data schema for the given data. Will be generated when not given.
  • uischema: UISchemaElement - the UI schema for the given data schema. Will be generated when not given.
  • cells: JsonFormsCellRendererRegistryEntry[] - the React cell renderer set to use
  • config: any - form-wide options. May contain default ui schema options.
  • readonly: boolean - whether all controls shall be readonly.
  • uischemas: JsonFormsUiSchemaEntry[] - registry for dynamic ui schema dispatching
  • validationMode: 'ValidateAndShow' | 'ValidateAndHide' | 'NoValidation' - the validation mode for the form
  • ajv: AJV - custom Ajv instance for the form
  • onChange - callback which is called on each data change, containing the updated data and the validation result.
