The following snippet generates the timeline you see in the demo:

import {Timeline, TimelineEvent} from '../components/index'

            <TimelineEvent title="John Doe sent a SMS"
                           createdAt="2016-09-12 10:06 PM"
                           icon={<i className="material-icons md-18">textsms</i>}
                I received the payment for $543. Should be shipping the item within a couple of hours.
                title="You sent an email to John Doe"
                createdAt="2016-09-11 09:06 AM"
                icon={<i className="material-icons md-18">email</i>}
                Like we talked, you said that you would share the shipment details? This is an urgent order and so I
                    am losing patience. Can you expedite the process and pls do share the details asap. Consider this a
                    gentle reminder if you are on track already!
