    Nylas Contact List

    Nylas Contact List (<nylas-contact-list>) is part of the Nylas Components library that lets you build user-facing contact functionality into your application in minutes. Use Nylas Contact List with your Nylas account or by passing in your own JSON data.

    Nylas Contact List example

    Table of Contents


    In your JavaScript application, you can install Nylas Contact List with:

    • npm npm i @nylas/components-contact-list
    • Yarn yarn add npm i @nylas/components-contact-list

    Alternatively, on an html page, you can load the Contact List using a script tag:

          <!-- Import the script from CDN -->
          <script src=""></script>

    For both installation options, in the body of your page, you can instantiate the contact list with <nylas-contact-list></nylas-contact-list>.

    Using It in Your App

    All Nylas components have two ways of dislaying data to your end-user:

    1. Fetching data directly from Nylas
    2. Passing in your own data

    Fetching data directly from Nylas


    If you haven't registered for a Nylas account yet, you can do so at Once there, head to the Components tab and create a new Contact List component.

    You'll be guided through the component setup and be given the option to tie your component to your calendar account. Review the Contact List Documentation.

    Allowed domains

    During the setup process, you'll be prompted to provide a list of allowed domains. Be sure to add any domains you'll be testing your app on, including localhost, and any staging and production URLs you might use.

    Passing in your own data

    Nylas Contact List can be used as a UI on top of any contacts that you provide. Events should follow the Nylas contacts object standard.

    The property to use for this is contacts. You can pass in an JSON array of contacts.

      const staticContacts = [
          "emails": [
              "email": ""
          "given_name": "Thomas Edison"
          "emails": [
              "email": ""
          "given_name": "Alexander Graham Bell"
          "emails": [
              "email": ""
          "given_name": "Albert Einstein"

    Then pass the array into your component using any JavaScript.

    <nylas-contact-list contacts={staticContacts}>

    You can also use plain JavaScript as an attribute.

    document.querySelector("nylas-contact-list").contacts = staticContacts;


    Nylas Contact List allows for several properties that affect the layout and functionality of your component. You can find a complete list of properties within our Documentation for Nylas Contact List

    Events and Callbacks

    You can listen to certain user events from your application by adding an event listener to your component.

    For example, you can listen for a contactClicked event with the following code:

      .addEventListener("contactClicked", (event) => {
        let { detail } = event;
        console.log("contact clicked", detail);
