React Pro Sidebar

Customizable and responsive react sidebar library with dropdown menus and unlimited number of nested submenus.




yarn add react-pro-sidebar

import { ProSidebar, Menu, MenuItem, SubMenu } from 'react-pro-sidebar';

If you are using sass then you can import the styles.scss directly into your scss file

@import '~react-pro-sidebar/dist/scss/styles.scss';

Sidebar Layout

You can take advantage of the sidebar layout components to organize the content of your sidebar

import { ProSidebar, SidebarHeader, SidebarFooter, SidebarContent } from 'react-pro-sidebar';

     *  You can add a header for the sidebar ex: logo
     *  You can add the content of the sidebar ex: menu, profile details, ...
     *  You can add a footer for the sidebar ex: copyright

Custom Styling

There are sets of sass variables available which you can override to define your own styles

You need to include your override variables before importing the scss file

Your custom.scss file should look something like this

// Your variable overrides
$sidebar-bg-color: #1d1d1d;

@import '~react-pro-sidebar/dist/scss/styles.scss';

    <MenuItem>Component 1</MenuItem>
    <SubMenu title="Sub Component 1" icon={<FaHeart />}>
      {/* you can have more nested submenus ... */}
