React Cloudimage Responsive | Cloudimage v7

Simple demo of react-cloudimage-responsive


DocsDemoCode SandboxWhy?

This plugin detects the width of any image container as well as the device pixel ratio density to load the optimal image size needed. Images are resized on-the-fly via the Cloudimage service, thus offering a comprehensive automated image optimization service.

When an image is first loaded on your website or mobile app, Cloudimage's resizing servers will download the origin image from the source, resize it for the client's screen size and deliver to your users through one or multiple Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). The generated image formats are cached in the CDN and will be delivered rocket fast on any subsequent request.

NOTE: Your original (master) images should be stored on a server or storage bucket (S3, Google Cloud, Azure Blob...) reachable over HTTP or HTTPS by Cloudimage. If you want to upload your master images to Cloudimage, contact us at hello@cloudimage.io.

To see the Cloudimage Responsive plugin in action, please check out the Demo page. Play with your browser's window size and observe your Inspector's Network tab to see how Cloudimage delivers the optimal image size to your browser, hence accelerating the overall page loading time.


To use the Cloudimage Responsive plugin, you will need a Cloudimage token to deliver your images over CDN. Don't worry, it only takes seconds to get one by registering here. Once your token is created, you can configure it as described below. This token allows you to use 25GB of image cache and 25GB of worldwide CDN traffic per month for free.

Step 1: Installation

using npm

$ npm install --save react-cloudimage-responsive-plain

Step 2: Initialize

After installing the react-cloudimage-responsive lib, simply initialize it with your token and the baseURL of your image storage with CloudimageProvider:

import React from 'react';
import { render } from 'react-dom';
import Img, { CloudimageProvider } from 'react-cloudimage-responsive-plain';
const cloudimageConfig = {
  token: 'demo',
  baseURL: 'https://jolipage.airstore.io/'
const App = () => {
  return (
    <CloudimageProvider config={cloudimageConfig}>
      <h1>Simple demo of react-cloudimage-responsive</h1>
      <Img src="img.jpg" alt="Demo image"/>
render(<App />, document.body);

Step 3: Implement it

Img component:

<Img src="img.jpg" alt="Demo image"/>

edeit in codesandbox

BackgroundImg component:

<BackgroundImg src="img.jpg">
 {'Your conent...'}

edeit in codesandbox



Type: String | Default: "demo" | required

Your Cloudimage customer token. Subscribe for a Cloudimage account to get one. The subscription takes less than a minute and is totally free.


Type: String | Default: "/" | optional

Your image folder on server, this alows to shorten your origin image URLs.


Type: bool | Default: false

If set to true the plugin will only add query params to the given source of image.


Type: Bool | Default: true | optional

Only images close to the client's viewport will be loaded, hence accelerating the page loading time. The plugin uses react-lazyload library to achieve it.


Type: Number/Array(Number) | Default: 100

Say if you want to preload a component even if it's 100px below the viewport (user have to scroll 100px more to see this component), you can set offset props to 100. On the other hand, if you want to delay loading a component even if it's top edge has already appeared at viewport, set offset to negative number.

Library supports horizontal lazy load out of the box. So when you provide this prop with number like 100 it will automatically set left edge offset to 100 and top edge to 100;

If you provide this prop with array like [100, 200], it will set left edge offset to 100 and top offset to 200.


Type: String | Default: 'org_if_sml=1' | optional

Applies default Cloudimage operations/ filters to your image, e.g. brightness, contrast, rotation... Multiple params can be applied, separated by "&" e.g. wat_scale=35&wat_gravity=northeast&wat_pad=10&grey=1

params: 'org_if_sml=1'

alternative syntax: type: Object

params: {
    org_if_sml: 1,
    grey: 1,

Type: Object


const cloudimageConfig = {
  token: 'demo',
  baseURL: 'https://jolipage.airstore.io/',
  presets: {
      xs: '(max-width: 575px)', // up to 575    PHONE
      sm: '(min-width: 576px)', // 576 - 767    PHABLET
      md: '(min-width: 768px)', // 768 - 991    TABLET
      lg: '(min-width: 992px)', // 992 - 1199   SMALL_LAPTOP_SCREEN
      xl: '(min-width: 1200px)' // from 1200    USUALSCREEN

Breakpoints shortcuts to use in image size property, can be overwridden.


Type: Number | Default: 100 | optional

Rounds up size of an image to nearest limitFactor value.

For example

  • for an image with width 358px and limitFactor equals 100 the plugin will round up to 400px
  • for an image with width 358px and limitFactor equals 5 the plugin will round up to 360px


Type: [Number,...] | Default: [1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4] | optional

List of supported device pixel ratios. If there is no need to support retina devices, you should set empty array devicePixelRatioList: []

Image properties


Type: String | Default: undefined | required

Original image hosted on your web server. You can use absolute path or relative to baseURL in your config.


Type: String (e.g. 300px, 20vw) | Default: undefined

If it's set the plugin will use width as fixed value and change only according device pixel ratio.


Type: String (e.g. 300px, 20vh) | Default: undefined

If it's set the plugin will use height as fixed value and change only according device pixel ratio.


Type: String | Default: undefined | optional

You can apply any Cloudimage operations/ filters to your image, e.g. brightness, contrast, rotation... Multiple params can be applied, separated by "&" e.g. wat_scale=35&wat_gravity=northeast&wat_pad=10&grey=1


alternative syntax: type: Object

    bright: 10,
    grey: 1,

Type: Object | Default: undefined

{preset breakpoint (xs,sm, md,lg,xl) or media query + ' ' + image params}:

      '(max-width: 575px)': { w: 400, h: 150 },
      '(min-width): 576px)': { r: 1 },
      '(min-width: 620px)': { h: 560 },
      '(min-width: 768px)': { w: '50vw' },
      '(min-width: 992px)': { w: '55vw', h: 300 },
      '(min-width: 1200px)': { w: 1200 }

You can drop some breakpoints, for example:

      sm: { w: 400, h: 200 },
      '(min-width: 620px)': { w: 200, h: 60 }
new experimental syntax

md: { w: '40vw', h: 350 } or md: { w: 250, h: '20vh' }

adds possibility to use fixed height or width and change dynamically other dimension

NOTE: if size is not set, the plugin uses a special algorithm to detect the width of image container and set the image size accordingly. This is the recommended way of using the Cloudimage Responsive plugin.


Type: Bool | optional

Make it possible to disable lazyLoading for each image.


Type: Object | optional

The lazyLoad configuration to LazyLoad component.

React-cloudimage-responsive plugins uses core-js v3 library to add polyfills. Gatsby has some problems with it. To support the plugin with Gatsby, there is a separate build process which doesn't include polyfills. You can add them manually in your index.js file before importing the plugin.

The initialization process is the same, the only difference you need to import components and provider with react-cloudimage-responsive-plain/dist/gatsby;

For example

import Img, { CloudimageProvider } from "react-cloudimage-responsive-plain/dist/gatsby";

Browser support

Tested in all modern browsers and IE 11.
