PlayKit JS UI - UI Application Framework for the PlayKit JS Player

Build Status code style: prettier

PlayKit JS UI is a UI Application Framework for composing PlayKit JS Player UI.

The application uses Preact to manage virtual DOM and provide a declarative way for building UI and Redux to manage a predictable state container.

The PlayKit JS UI framework enables an easy and intuitive way of customize the UI to any purpose and design, either by simple CSS definitions or by letting application define it's entire layout.

The UI framework exposes a UIManager that handles the life cycle of the UI, and and a library of components which is used to build the UI layout, where each component is responsible of a specific functionality.

Components library contains any need of the UI, but can be extended to include any additional component an application will require.

The library also exposes its default presets, which can be used as-is™ or extended.

PlayKit JS UI is written in ECMAScript6, statically analysed using Flow and transpiled in ECMAScript5 using Babel.

Getting Started


The UI Manager expects a player that implements the PlayKit JS Player interface.

The UI Manager depends on Preact and Redux.


First, clone and run yarn to install dependencies:

git clone https://github.com/kaltura/playkit-js-ui.git
cd playkit-js-ui
yarn install


Then, build the player

yarn run build

Embed the Player In Your Test Page

Finally, add the bundle as a script tag in your page, and initialize the player

<script type="text/javascript" src="/PATH/TO/FILE/playkit.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/PATH/TO/FILE/playkit-ui.js"></script>
<div id="player-placeholder" style="height:360px;width:640px">
  <script type="text/javascript">
    var playerConfig = {...};
    var uiConfig = {targetId: "player-placeholder"};
    var player = playkit.core.loadPlayer(playerConfig);
    var uiManager = new playkit.ui.UIManager(player, uiConfig);
