React Virtuoso

React Virtuoso is a simple, easy to use React virtualized list component that can render huge data sets.
Out of the box, Virtuoso:

  • Handles items with variable dynamic height; no manual measurements or hard-coding of item heights necessary;
  • Supports grouping with sticky group headers (GroupedVirtuoso);
  • Supports responsive grid layout (VirtuosoGrid);
  • Automatically handles content resizing;
  • Can render footer at the end of the list;
  • Can pin the first N items to the top of the list.

Get Started

Install the package in your React project:

npm install react-virtuoso

Or, if yarn is your thing:

yarn add react-virtuoso

Then, put the component somewhere in your tree:

import * as React from 'react'
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
import { Virtuoso } from 'react-virtuoso'

const App = () => {
  return (
    <Virtuoso style={{ width: '200px', height: '400px' }} totalCount={200} item={index => <div>Item {index}</div>} />

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'))


The GroupedVirtuoso component is similar to the "flat" Virtuoso, with the following differences:

  • Instead of totalCount, the component accepts groupCounts: number[], which specifies the amount of items in each group.
    For example, passing [20, 30] will render two groups with 20 and 30 items each;
  • In addition the item render prop, the component requires an additional group render prop,
    which renders the group header. The group callback receives the zero-based group index as a parameter;
  • The item render prop gets called with an additional second parameter, groupIndex: number.

grouped numbers,
grouped by first letter and
groups with load on demand


The VirtuosoGrid component displays same sized items in multiple columns.
The layout and item sizing is controlled through CSS class properties, which allows you to use media queries, min-width, percentage, etc.

Check the responsive grid columns example for a sample implementation.

The component accepts an optional
footer render property,
which is rendered after all items.
The footer can be used to host a "load more" button
or an indicator that the user has reached the end of the list.

Check the footer, press load more and endless scrolling examples for practical applications of the footer.

Pinned Items

The component accepts an optional topItems property, that specifies
how many of the items to keep "pinned" at the top of the list. Check the top items example.
