3. Code Example


import React from 'react';
import { BrowserRouter, Switch, Route, Link } from 'react-router-dom';
import { PageTransition } from '@steveeeie/react-page-transition';
import './styles.css';

const Links = () => (
    <Link to="/">Home</Link>
    <Link to="/about">About</Link>

const Home = props => <h1>Home</h1>;

const About = props => <h1>About</h1>;

export default function App() {
  return (
      <Links />
        render={({ location }) => {
          return (
              <Switch location={location}>
                <Route exact path="/" component={Home} />
                <Route exact path="/about" component={About} />

Wrap your routes inside the PageTransition component and pass one of the preset names to the preset prop. View the advanced demo for the full list of presets.

You will also need to pass the current location.path to the transitionKey prop, this is so that the internal TransitionGroup can track which components are entering and exiting.


#root {
  height: 100%;

PageTransition is styled with height: 100%. The parent containers need to be given a height for it to render correctly because of this.


Prop Required Type Description
preset No String Sets the enter and exit animations *
enterAnimation No String Sets the enter animation *
exitAnimation No String Sets the exit animation *
