NPM minzipped package size JavaScript Style Guide License

Features

It gives you all the features of Netlify Forms as simple and reusable React components which have been tested on Netlify.

  • Default form handlers with support for file uploads.
  • Spam prevention through included honeypot and reCAPTCHA components.
  • Can be used alone or together with form libraries such as Formik or react-hook-form.

Before using

This component must be used with Server-Side Rendering (SSR) because Netlify searches for a data-netlify attribute on HTML form tags to setup their Forms backend for you.

➡️ Suggestions for SSR: GatsbyJS, Next.js, react-static

Install

Either install with NPM via:

npm install --save react-netlify-forms

or with YARN via:

yarn add react-netlify-forms

Usage

In the following example a contact form with two inputs and a honeypot for extra spam prevention is shown. It also works without JavaScript by falling back to a serverside-rendered form which just submits data with an usual POST request:

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import { NetlifyForm, Honeypot } from 'react-netlify-forms'
export default ContactForm = () => (
<NetlifyForm name='Contact' action='/thanks' honeypotName='bot-field'>
{({ handleChange, success, error }) => (
<>
<Honeypot />
{success && <p>Thanks for contacting us!</p>}
{error && (
<p>Sorry, we could not reach our servers. Please try again later.</p>
)}
<div>
<label htmlFor='name'>Name:</label>
<input type='text' name='name' id='name' onChange={handleChange} />
</div>
<div>
<label htmlFor='message'>Message:</label>
<textarea
type='text'
name='message'
id='message'
rows='4'
onChange={handleChange}
/>
</div>
<div>
<button type='submit'>Submit</button>
</div>
</>
)}
</NetlifyForm>
)
