    React Link Preview

    A React component that renders beautiful, fully-customizable link previews.

    npm version package downloads CI


    How to use

    Install the package:

    yarn add @dhaiwat10/react-link-preview

    npm install @dhaiwat10/react-link-preview

    Import and render the preview:

    import { LinkPreview } from '@dhaiwat10/react-link-preview';
    const Home = () => {
      return <LinkPreview url='' width='400px' />;

    If the component renders nothing, it means that no metadata could be scraped for the URL. Provide a fallback component if you don't want to render null.


    This package uses a Heroku proxy to get around CORS issues. Feel free to go through the source code of the proxy here.

    I highly recommend forking both this repo and the proxy repo, and deploying your own copy of the project if you plan to use this package in a production app.
