Try to transform Vue component to React component


Try to transform Vue component(jsx syntax) to React component.

It is under developing, so it's not stable now. The 1st stable version will come soon and be released v1.0.0.


Prerequisites: Node.js (>=8.0) and NPM (>=5.0)

$ npm install vue-to-react -g


Usage: vtr [options]


  -V, --version     output the version number
  -i, --input       the input path for vue component
  -o, --output      the output path for react component, which default value is process.cwd()
  -n, --name        the output file name, which default value is "react.js"
  -h, --help        output usage information


$ vtr -i my/vue/component

The above code will transform my/vue/component.js to ${process.cwd()}/react.js.

$ vtr -i my/vue/component -o my/vue -n test

The above code will transform my/vue/component.js to my/vue/test.js.

Here is a demo.


The following list you should be pay attention when you are using vue-to-react to transform a vue component to react component:

  • Only supprts jsx syntax of vue component, don't support SFC . See jsx in vue
  • Not support watch prop of vue component
  • Not support components prop of vue component. See component tip
  • Only supports partial lift-cycle methods of vue component. Lift-cycle relations mapping as follows:
// Life-cycle methods relations mapping
const cycle = {
    'created': 'componentWillMount',
    'mounted': 'componentDidMount',
    'updated': 'componentDidUpdate',
    'beforeDestroy': 'componentWillUnmount',
    'errorCaptured': 'componentDidCatch',
    'render': 'render'
  • Each computed prop should be a function:
// ...

computed: {
    // support
    test () {
        return your-computed-value;

    // not support
    test2: {
        get () {},
        set () {}

// ...
  • Computed prop of vue component will be put into the render method of react component:
// vue component
// ...

computed: {
    // support
    test () {
        this.title = 'messages'; // Don't do this, it won't be handle and you will receive a warning.
        return this.title + this.msg;

// ...

// react component
// ...

render () {
    const test = this.state.title + this.state.msg;

// ...
