The idea for this library was to create a trip component library that is created in react way rather than json config, while still keeping the style in a separate css file built in such way that they can be easily overwritten and customized.

Check example demo tour on github repo ./src/demo/Tour


npm install react-rtg

Basic usage

import "react-rtg/build/index.css"; // import stylesheet - you can do it in sass files as well
import React, {useState} from "react";
import {Tour, Step} from "react-rtg";

const TourGuide = ({isOpen, setOpen}) => {
    return (
        <Tour isOpen={isOpen} 
              onClose={setOpen.bind(null, false)} 
              onOpen={setOpen.bind(null, true)}>
            <Step placement="top-center">
                <p>First step of tutorial placed on cenetr top of window</p>
            <Step selector="#buttonId" placement="bottom">
                <p>Second on is under selected target element</p>

const App = () => {
    const [isTourOpen, setIsTourOpen] = useState(false)
    return (
        <TourGuide isOpen={isTourOpen} setOpen={setIsTourOpen}/>
        <button id="buttonId" onClick={setIsTourOpen.bind(null, ture)}> 
            Start Tour

    • onWait // *if step have wait attr and is ready- onWait({index, false, id})
    • onBeforeShow (on Step component) - called before given step well be displayed - this can be only added to Step component
    • onOpen // called in during opening process
    • onChange // after current displayed step is changed onChange(index, Step.props)
    • onAfterOpen // called when step is visible all process of rendering is finished
  • Next step
    • onNext // you can return index of next step
    • onLock// called while trying to change step index on locked one
