    Customizable poll component for React

    react-polls is a poll component for React which can be easily used and customizable adding your question and possible answers. It uses browser Local Storage to save the user vote and block multiples votes.


    If you want to test and view react-polls, go to the online demo by clicking here. The demo source code is available within the example directory.


    Use the package manager to install react-polls dependency to your project.


    npm install --save react-polls


    yarn add react-polls


    After installation, import the Poll component from react-polls dependency and start using it by passing the required props: question, answer and onVote. See User Guide section for more information about props.

    import React, { Component } from 'react';
    import Poll from 'react-polls';
    // Declaring poll question and answers
    const pollQuestion = 'Is react-polls useful?'
    const pollAnswers = [
      { option: 'Yes', votes: 8 },
      { option: 'No', votes: 2 }
    class App extends Component {
      // Setting answers to state to reload the component with each vote
      state = {
        pollAnswers: [...pollAnswers]
      // Handling user vote
      // Increments the votes count of answer when the user votes
      handleVote = voteAnswer => {
        const { pollAnswers } = this.state
        const newPollAnswers = => {
          if (answer.option === voteAnswer) answer.votes++
          return answer
          pollAnswers: newPollAnswers
      render () {
        const { pollAnswers } = this.state
        return (
            <Poll question={pollQuestion} answers={pollAnswers} onVote={this.handleVote} />

    This is a basic example, for complex usage, see the Demo and User Guide sections.
