The easiest way to use React Email Editor is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process.

npm install react-email-editor --save


Require the EmailEditor component and render it with JSX:

import React, { useRef } from 'react';
import { render } from 'react-dom';

import EmailEditor from 'react-email-editor';

const App = (props) => {
  const emailEditorRef = useRef(null);

  const exportHtml = () => {
    emailEditorRef.current.editor.exportHtml((data) => {
      const { design, html } = data;
      console.log('exportHtml', html);

  const onLoad = () => {
    // editor instance is created
    // you can load your template here;
    // const templateJson = {};
    // emailEditorRef.current.editor.loadDesign(templateJson);

  const onReady = () => {
    // editor is ready

  return (
        <button onClick={exportHtml}>Export HTML</button>

      <EmailEditor ref={emailEditorRef} onLoad={onLoad} onReady={onReady} />

render(<App />, document.getElementById('app'));
