React Email Editor

The excellent drag-n-drop email editor by Unlayer as a React.js wrapper component. This is the most powerful and developer friendly visual email builder for your app.


The easiest way to use React Email Editor is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process.

npm install react-email-editor --save


Require the EmailEditor component and render it with JSX:

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import { render } from 'react-dom'

import EmailEditor from 'react-email-editor'

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return <div>
      <h1>react-email-editor Demo</h1>

        <button onClick={this.exportHtml}>Export HTML</button>

        ref={editor => this.editor = editor}

  exportHtml = () => {
    this.editor.exportHtml(data => {
      const { design, html } = data
      console.log('exportHtml', html)

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