The following wonderful companies have sponsored react-virtualized:
react-virtualized using npm.
npm install react-virtualized --save
ES6, CommonJS, and UMD builds are available with each distribution. For example:
// If you're using the Table component you'll need to include the default styles.// This only needs to be done once; probably during your application's bootstrapping process.// Grid and List base styles are purely functional and so they're all inline.// Then you can import any react-virtualized components you need.// Tree-shaking is supported with ES6 modules (`jsnext:main` package target).
Alternately you can load a global-friendly UMD build:
Now you're ready to start using the components. You can learn more about which components react-virtualized has to offer below.
React Virtualized has very few dependencies and most are managed by NPM automatically.
However the following peer dependencies must be specified by your project in order to avoid version conflicts:
NPM will not automatically install these for you but it will show you a warning message with instructions on how to install them.
By default all react-virtualized components use
shallowCompare to avoid re-rendering unless props or state has changed.
This ocassionally confuses users when a collection's data changes (eg
['d','e','f']) but props do not (eg
The solution to this is to let react-virtualized know that something external has changed. This can be done a couple of different ways.
shallowCompare method will detect changes to any props, even if they aren't declared as
This means you can also pass through additional properties that affect cell rendering to ensure changes are detected.
For example, if you're using
List to render a list of items that may be re-sorted after initial render- react-virtualized would not normally detect the sort operation because none of the properties it deals with change.
However you can pass through the additional sort property to trigger a re-render.

There are also a couple of how-to guides:
- Customizing classes and styles
- Displaying items in reverse order
- Using AutoSizer
- Creating an infinite-loading list
- Displaying a reverse list
Examples for each component can be seen in the documentation.
Here are some online demos of each component:
And here are some "recipe" type demos:
react-virtualized aims to support all evergreen browsers and recent mobile browsers for iOS and Android. IE 9+ is also supported (although IE 9 will require some user-defined, custom CSS since flexbox layout is not supported).
If you find a browser-specific problem, please report it along with a repro case. The easiest way to do this is probably by forking this Plunker.
Here are some great components built on top of react-virtualized:
- react-infinite-calendar: Infinite scrolling date-picker with localization, themes, keyboard support, and more
- react-sortable-hoc: Higher-order components to turn any list into an animated, touch-friendly, sortable list
- react-sortable-tree: Drag-and-drop sortable representation of hierarchical data
- react-virtualized-checkbox: Checkbox group component with virtualization for large number of options
- react-virtualized-select: Drop-down menu for React with windowing to support large numbers of options.
