Yii2 GridView widget for react

This component is created to simplify moving from php rendering of built-in Yii2 Gridview widget to React-based application using some of its familiar settings.

Simple example


npm install --save yii-react-gridview

Setting props

Instead of using pager or dataProvider objects as it used in Yii2 Gridview widget, some of its properties (or equivalents) should be set as props directly in GridView component. It makes more suitable way for React of re-rendering the component in case if some prop will be changed. See Available props to find out how to set up your GridView.


of component:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import GridView from 'yii-react-gridview';
import Axios from 'axios';
class App extends Component {
  constructor (props) {
    this.state = {
      data: null,
    Axios.get('/your/get-data').then(response => {
      let dataProvider =;
      this.pageSize = dataProvider.pageSize;
      this.headerCells = dataProvider.headerCells;
      this.maxButtonCount = dataProvider.maxButtonCount;
        currentPage: dataProvider.currentPage,
        totalCount: dataProvider.totalCount,
    this.columns = {
      username: null,
      email: null,
      city: null,
  onPageButtonClicked = (currentPage) =>  {
    Axios.get('/your/get-data').then(response => {
        currentPage: currentPage,
  onSortChanged = (sort) =>  {
    this.setState({sort: sort});
    Axios.get('/your/get-data', {
      params: {
        // Pass 'sort' as is (js-object) or prepare it to be compatible with Query::orderBy()
        orderBy: sort,
    }).then(response => {
  render() {
    return (
      <div className="App">
          data={ }
          headerCells={ this.headerCells }
          columns={ this.columns }
          currentPage={ this.state.currentPage }
          maxButtonCount={ this.maxButtonCount }
          pageSize={this.pageSize }
          onPageButtonClick={ this.onPageButtonClicked }
          onSortChange={ this.onSortChanged }
ReactDOM.render(<App/>, document.getElementById('root'));

of action:

class YourController extends Controller {
    public function actionGetData($currentPage = 0, $pageSize = 20, $filters = [], $orderBy = '') {
        \Yii::$app->response->format = Response::FORMAT_JSON;
        // Prepare orderBy object here or do it in 'onSortChange' callback
        // Anyway make it compatible with '->orderBy($orderBy)'
        $preparedOrderBy = [];
        if ($orderBy) {
            foreach (Json::decode($orderBy) as $col => $sort) {
                $preparedOrderBy[] = "{$col} {$sort}";
            if (!empty($preparedOrderBy)) {
                $preparedOrderBy = implode(',', $preparedOrderBy);
        // Probably $filters should be also prepared
        // ...
        return [
            'data' => ArrayHelper::toArray(User::find()
                ->offset($currentPage * $pageSize)
                ->all(), [
                User::class => [
            'headerCells' => (new User)->attributeLabels(),
            'currentPage' => (int) $currentPage,
            'totalCount' => (int) User::find()->andFilterWhere($filters)->count(),
            'pageSize' => $pageSize,
