Import and use the ConversationalText component, passing in the list of strings you want printed, along with optional props.

import ConversationalText from "react-conversational-text";
import "./App.css";

function App() {
  return (
          "This is the first message.",
          "However, this is the second message.",

export default App;


  • messages (string[]): The list of strings you want to be printed.

Each of the following props is optional and can be used to customize the behavior of the ConversationalText component.

  • delayAfterCommaMs (number): Additional delay in milliseconds after a comma is printed. Default is 500ms.

  • addSpaceBetweenMessages (boolean): If true, adds a space between messages. Default is true.
  • lineBreakBetweenMessages (boolean): If true, adds a line break between messages. Default is false.
  • onMessageComplete (function): A callback function that is called when each input message is completed. The function receives the index of the completed message as a parameter. Example: onMessageComplete={(messageIndex) => { /* handle completion of message */ }}
  • onAllMessagesComplete (function): A callback function that is called when all messages have been completed. This function does not receive any parameters. Example: onAllMessagesComplete={() => { /* handle completion of all messages */ }}
