Create advanced nested dropdowns with React and TypeScript.
Customize the look to your own needs using the different component props.

Example (The screenshot shows custom applied styles)


Install the package using NPM:

npm install @suprasmooth/react-nested-dropdown

Import the package and the styles into your React app.
The styles are scoped and should not be conflicting with your own styles.

import { NestedDropdown } from '@suprasmooth/react-nested-dropdown';

import '@suprasmooth/react-nested-dropdown/dist/style.css';

Properties and Settings

The NestedDropdown component receives a menu prop wich is an array of items typed as MenuItem.

export type MenuItem = {
 key: Key; // used for rendering menu items
 type?: MenuItemType; // see MenuItemType enum for possible values
 prefixedComponent?: JSX.Element | string; // component to include in font of the menu item
 label?: JSX.Element | string; // the label for the menu item itself
 suffixedComponent?: JSX.Element | string; // component to include after the menu item
 className?: string; // add additional classes here
 tooltip?: string; // basic html tooltip for the menu item
 href?: string; // link to an external page
 isDisabled?: boolean; // disable the menu item
 onClick?: () => void; // called when the menu item is clicked
 children?: MenuItem[]; // also known as the submenu items

Play with the different properties to get the output you want. There are almost no restrictions.

There is no limit on how many children you can pass to the NestedDropdown component.

Tailwindcss Preflight

You can rename the .env.skel file to control tailwindcss's preflight functionality. This will add css resets to the development process and helps you to avoid unnecessary styles and overrides.

We assume that every developer has some kind of "CSS Reset" in their own project. We try to set as little styles, overrides and classes as possible.


You can pass your own children element to the NestedDropdown component or you can use the NestedDropdownButton component as the dropdown trigger element, as seen in the following example.

import {
} from '@suprasmooth/react-nested-dropdown';

import '@suprasmooth/react-nested-dropdown/dist/style.css';

const DropdownMenu = return(
       key: '0',
       label: 'Link 1',
       className: 'px-3 py-1',
       suffixedComponent: <span>&nbsp;{'>'}&nbsp;</span>,
       children: [
         key: '0-1',
         label: 'Link 1-1',
         className: 'px-3 py-1',
       key: '1',
       type: MenuItemType.Separator,
       key: '2',
       label: 'Link 2',
       className: 'px-3 py-1',
       prefixedComponent: <span>Prefix:&nbsp;</span>,
       children: [
         key: '2-0',
         label: 'Link 2-1',
         className: 'px-3 py-1',
         key: '2-1',
         type: MenuItemType.Separator,
         key: '2-2',
         type: MenuItemType.Label,
         label: (
          <span className="font-bold">
         className: 'px-3 py-1',
         key: '2-3',
         label: 'Link 2-2',
         className: 'px-3 py-1',
         children: [
           key: '3',
           label: 'Link 3-1',
           className: 'px-3 py-1',
     ] as NestedDropdownStructure
     className="px-3 py-1"
     additionalStyles={{ backgroundColor: 'red' }}
