ReactToPrint - Print React components in the browser

Print React components in the browser. Supports Chrome, Safari, Firefox and EDGE

So you've created a React component but would love to give end users the ability to print out the contents of that component. This package aims to solve that by popping up a new print window with CSS styles copied over as well.

Install

npm install react-to-print --save-dev

Usage


import React from "react";
import ReactToPrint from "react-to-print";

class ComponentToPrint extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <table>
        <thead>
          <th>column 1</th>
          <th>column 2</th>
          <th>column 3</th>
        </thead>
        <tbody>
          <tr>
            <td>data 1</td>
            <td>data 2</td>
            <td>data 3</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td>data 1</td>
            <td>data 2</td>
            <td>data 3</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td>data 1</td>
            <td>data 2</td>
            <td>data 3</td>
          </tr>
        </tbody>
      </table>
    );
  }
}
