A stateless react component that toggles the display of it's children. It's like ng-show, ng-hide or ng-if but for react.

This allows you to DRY up statements like this:

<div className={this.props.shouldHide ? 'hidden' : ''}>

Example usage:

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import ToggleDisplay from 'react-toggle-display';

class App extends Component {
  constructor() {
    this.state = { show: false };

  handleClick() {
      show: !

  render() {
    return (
      <div className="App">
        <p className="App-intro">
          <button onClick={ () => this.handleClick() }>Toggle things</button>
        <ToggleDisplay show={}>
          I am rendered in a span (by default) and hidden with display:none when show is false.

        <ToggleDisplay if={} tag="section">
          I am rendered in a section and removed from the DOM when if is false.

export default App;


hide - boolean

show - boolean

if - boolean

tag - string. The tag name to use as the ToggleDisplay element. Defaults to span.

The two first props are simply the inverse of each other. Using both at the same time will result in canceling each other out.


npm install react-toggle-display
