Tutorial: Installation


Handsontable for React is the official wrapper for Handsontable, a JavaScript data grid component with a spreadsheet look & feel. It easily integrates with any data source and comes with lots of useful features like data binding, validation, sorting or powerful context menu.


This component needs the Handsontable library to work. We suggest using npm to install the package.

npm install handsontable-pro @handsontable-pro/react

for Handsontable Community Edition

npm install handsontable @handsontable/react

Basic usage

Import the Handsontable styles to your project

          @import 'handsontable-pro/dist/handsontable.full.css';
for Handsontable Community Edition
          @import 'handsontable/dist/handsontable.full.css';

Then use Handsontable for React component in your codebase

        import React from 'react';
import { HotTable } from '@handsontable-pro/react';
// import { HotTable } from '@handsontable/react'; // for Handsontable Community Edition

class App extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.data = [
      ["", "Ford", "Volvo", "Toyota", "Honda"],
      ["2016", 10, 11, 12, 13],
      ["2017", 20, 11, 14, 13],
      ["2018", 30, 15, 12, 13]

  render() {
    return (
      <div id="hot-app">
        <HotTable data={this.data} colHeaders={true} rowHeaders={true} width="600" height="300" stretchH="all" />
