How Does It Work

  1. Angular renders ngui-react component with the following attributes;
* `reactComponent`, A React component to render. Let's call it as MyComp.
* `reactProps`, react props for the React component, MyComp.
* `reactState`, the initial state to be used by MyComp
  1. ngui-react create and render React component using;
* `React.createElement()`
* `React.render()`

Access ReactJS properties

You can access react element and instance from Angular component.

  • reactElement: the react element from React.createElement()
  • reactInstance: the react instance from React.render()


  1. install @ngui/react

     $ npm install @ngui/react --save
  2. import NguiReactModule to your AppModule

     import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
     import { FormsModule } from "@angular/forms";
     import { BrowserModule  } from '@angular/platform-browser';
     import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
     import { NguiReactModule } from '@ngui/react';
       imports: [BrowserModule, FormsModule, NguiReactModule],
       declarations: [AppComponent],
       bootstrap: [ AppComponent ]
     export class AppModule { }

For full example, please check out app directory to see the example of;

Example Usage
