How to install

yarn add @react-pdf/renderer

How it works

import React from 'react';
import { Document, Page, Text, View, StyleSheet } from '@react-pdf/renderer';

// Create styles
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  page: {
    flexDirection: 'row',
    backgroundColor: '#E4E4E4'
  section: {
    margin: 10,
    padding: 10,
    flexGrow: 1

// Create Document Component
const MyDocument = () => (
    <Page size="A4" style={}>
      <View style={styles.section}>
        <Text>Section #1</Text>
      <View style={styles.section}>
        <Text>Section #2</Text>

Web. Render in DOM

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { PDFViewer } from '@react-pdf/renderer';

const App = () => (
    <MyDocument />

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));

Node. Save in a file

import React from 'react';
import ReactPDF from '@react-pdf/renderer';

ReactPDF.render(<MyDocument />, `${__dirname}/example.pdf`);


For each example, try opening output.pdf to see the result.

To run the examples, first clone the project and install the dependencies:

git clone
cd react-pdf
yarn install

Then, run yarn example -- <example-name>

yarn example -- fractals
