    Here's a blog post with a quickstart guide: https://medium.com/unlayer-blog/creating-a-drag-n-drop-email-editor-with-react-db1e9eb42386


    The easiest way to use React Email Editor is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process.

    npm install react-email-editor --save


    Require the EmailEditor component and render it with JSX:

    import React, { useRef } from 'react';
    import { render } from 'react-dom';
    import EmailEditor from 'react-email-editor';
    const App = (props) => {
      const emailEditorRef = useRef(null);
      const exportHtml = () => {
        emailEditorRef.current.editor.exportHtml((data) => {
          const { design, html } = data;
          console.log('exportHtml', html);
      const onLoad = () => {
        // you can load your template here;
        // const templateJson = {};
        // emailEditorRef.current.editor.loadDesign(templateJson);
      return (
            <button onClick={exportHtml}>Export HTML</button>
          <EmailEditor ref={emailEditorRef} onLoad={onLoad} />
    render(<App />, document.getElementById('app'));
