A Select control built with Reactjs, styled-components.


Up to date with react/react-dom 16.2.0

ATTENTION: Work in Progress (sorry about that!)

This project was built with styled-components and is a "rethink" of the awesome project react-select. But what the differences between react-select and this project?

  • Lightweight!
  • It don`t force you to load any external css.
  • Works with css-modules concept and not with global class names. Here has a good discussion about this problem (here).
  • CSS Variables: Very easy to customize for your need.
  • Shadow DOM: If you has or had problems with input fields globally stylized you can "encapsulate" your component using this awesome feature.


npm install react-styled-select --save

Example Usage

import React from 'react'
import Select from 'react-styled-select'

class MyComp extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const options = [
      { label: "One", value: 1},
      { label: "Two", value: 2},
    return (
          selectValue: 'my-custom-value',
          selectArrow: 'my-custom-arrow'

  setTimeout(function() {
    callback(null, {
      options: [
        { value: 'one', label: 'One' },
