🌈 React for interactive command-line apps



Ink


React for CLIs. Build and test your CLI output using components.

Build Status npm

Ink provides the same component-based UI building experience that React offers in the browser, but for command-line apps It uses Yoga to build Flexbox layouts in the terminal, so most CSS-like props are available in Ink as well If you are already familiar with React, you already know Ink.

Since Ink is a React renderer, it means that all features of React are supported. Head over to React website for documentation on how to use it. Only Ink's methods will be documented in this readme.

Note: This is documentation for Ink 3. If you're looking for docs on Ink 2, check out this release. There's also a migration guide from Ink 2 available.
