    React Slack Feedback

    View live demo

    Customizable React component for gathering user feedback to send to slack.

    Build Status XO code style


    Install with yarn or npm:

    yarn add react-slack-feedback styled-components

    To use the component, import it and render in your app's global component, or individual components (if you don't want it on every page).

    NOTE: Your Slack Webhook URL should never be available on the front end. For this reason you must have a server which sends the request to slack. This component will produce the JSON object to send to Slack but it won't send the request for you.

    import SlackFeedback, { themes } from 'react-slack-feedback'
        theme={themes.dark} // (optional) See src/themes/default for default theme
        user="Slack Feedback" // The logged in user (default = "Unknown User")
        onImageUpload={(image, success,error) => 
            .then(({ url }) => success(url))
        onSubmit={(payload, success, error) => 
    function sendToServer(payload, success, error) {
      return fetch('/api/slack', {
        method: 'POST',
        body: JSON.stringify(payload)
    function uploadImage(image, success, error) {
      var form = new FormData()
      form.append('image', image)
      return fetch('/api/upload', { method: 'POST', data: form })
        .then(({ url }) => success(url))
        .catch(err => error(err))


    Prop Type Default Required Description

    errorTimeout Number 8000 (8 seconds)
    feedbackTypes Array<{ value: String, label: String }> See code

    translations Object See translations file

    Callback Functions

    Function Arguments Description
    onSubmit (payload: Object, success: Function, error: Function) Called when the user hits send. Use the success callback to indicate that the request was successful. Use the error callback to indicate failure.
