npm install --save react-joyride

Include Joyride in the parent component.

var react = require('react');
var Joyride = require('react-joyride');

var App = React.createClass({
    render: function () {
        return (
            <div className="app">
                <Joyride ref={c => (this.joyride = c)} steps={this.state.steps} debug={true} ... />
                <YourComponents .../>

Don't forget to pass a ref to the component.


If your are using SCSS (and you should):

@import '../path/to/node-modules/react-joyride/lib/styles/react-joyride'

Or include this directly in your html:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="react-joyride/lib/styles/react-joyride-compiled.css" type="text/css">

Getting Started

Add a custom function to include steps to your state in your own component

addSteps: function (steps) {
    let joyride = this.joyride;

    if (!Array.isArray(steps)) {
        steps = [steps];

    if (!steps.length) {
        return false;

    this.setState(function(currentState) {
        currentState.steps = currentState.steps.concat(joyride.parseSteps(steps));
        return currentState;

addTooltip(data) {

Add steps/tooltips after your components are mounted.

componentDidMount: function () {
    this.addSteps({...}); // or this.addTooltip({...});

    // or using props in your child components
render: function () {
    return (
          <Joyride ref="joyride" .../>
          <ChildComponent addSteps={this.addSteps} addTooltip={this.addTooltip} />

Or you can start the tour after a criteria is met

componentDidUpdate (prevProps, prevState) {
    if (!prevState.ready && this.state.ready) {

Please refer to the source code of the demo if you need a practical example.


You can change the initial options passing props to the component. All optional.

debug {bool}: Console.log Joyride's inner actions. Defaults to false

keyboardNavigation {bool}: Toggle keyboard navigation (esc, space bar, return). Defaults to true

locale {object}: The strings used in the tooltip. Defaults to { back: 'Back', close: 'Close', last: 'Last', next: 'Next', skip: 'Skip' }

resizeDebounce {bool}: Delay the reposition of the current step while the window is being resized. Defaults to false

resizeDebounceDelay {number}: The amount of delay for the resizeDebounce callback. Defaults to 200

scrollOffset {number}: The scrollTop offset used in scrollToSteps. Defaults to 20

scrollToSteps {bool}: Scroll the page to the next step if needed. Defaults to true

scrollToFirstStep {bool}: Scroll the page for the first step. Defaults to false

showBackButton {bool}: Display a back button. Defaults to true

showOverlay {bool}: Display an overlay with holes above your steps (for tours only). Defaults to true

showSkipButton {bool}: Display a link to skip the tour. Defaults to false

showStepsProgress {bool}: Display the tour progress in the next button e.g. 2/5 in continuous tours. Defaults to false

steps {array}: The tour's steps. Defaults to []

tooltipOffset {number}: The tooltip offset from the target. Defaults to 30

type {string}: The type of your presentation. It can be continuous (played sequencially with the Next button) or single. Defaults to single

disableOverlay {bool}: Don't close the tooltip on clicking the overlay. Defaults to false

callback {function}: It will be called after:

  • clicking the beacon { type: 'step:before', step: {...} }
  • closing a step { type: 'step:after', step: {...} }
  • clicking on the overlay (if not disabled) { type: 'overlay', step: {...} }
  • when the tour ends. { type: 'finished', steps: [{...}], skipped: boolean }

Defaults to undefined


completeCallback {function}: It will be called after an user has completed all the steps or skipped the tour and passes two parameters, the steps {array} and if the tour was skipped {boolean}. Defaults to undefined

stepCallback {function}: It will be called after each step and passes the completed step {object}. Defaults to undefined





Add tooltips in your elements.

  • data {object} - A step object (check the syntax below)


Call this method to start the tour.

  • autorun {boolean} - Starts the tour with the first tooltip opened.


Call this method to stop/pause the tour.


Call this method to reset the tour iteration back to 0

  • restart {boolean} - Starts the new tour right away


Retrieve the current progress of your tour. The object returned looks like this:

    index: 2,
    percentageComplete: 50,
    step: {
        title: "...",
        text: "...",
        selector: "...",
        position: "...",


Parse the incoming steps, check if it's already rendered and returns an array with valid items

  • steps {array|object}
var steps = this.joyride.parseSteps({
    title: 'Title',
    text: 'description',
    selector: 'my-super-class',
    position: 'top'

// steps
    title: 'Title',
    text: 'description',
    selector: '#super-panel',
    position: 'top'

Only start the tour after all target elements (or at least the first step) are rendered in the page.

Tooltip / Step Syntax

There are a few usable options but you can pass custom parameters.

  • title: The title of the tooltip
  • text: The tooltip's body text (required)
  • selector: The target DOM selector of your feature (required)
  • position: Relative position of you beacon and tooltip. It can be one of these:top, top-left, top-right, bottom, bottom-left, bottom-right, right and left. This defaults to top.
  • type: The event type that trigger the tooltip: click or hover. Defaults to click

Extra option for standalone tooltips

  • trigger: The DOM element that will trigger the tooltip

You can style tooltips independently with these options: backgroundColor, borderRadius, color, mainColor, textAlign and width.

Also you can style button, skip, back, close and hole individually using standard style options. And beacon offset, inner and outer colors.


    title: 'First Step',
    text: 'Start using the <strong>joyride</strong>', // supports html tags
    selector: '.first-step',
    position: 'bottom-left',
    type: 'hover',
    style: {
        backgroundColor: 'rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8)',
        borderRadius: '0',
        color: '#fff',
        mainColor: '#ff4456',
        textAlign: 'center',
        width: '29rem',
        beacon: {
            offsetX: 10,
            offsetY: 10,
            inner: '#000',
            outer: '#000'
        button: {
            display: 'none'
            // or any style attribute
        skip: {
            color: '#f04'
        hole: {
            backgroundColor: 'RGBA(201, 23, 33, 0.2)',
