React Component that allows you to customise file-input element

Geek Repo:Geek Repo

This component allows you to customize the look of file-input element.

Demo & Examples

Live demo: ranyefet.github.io/react-file-input

To build the examples locally, run:

npm install
npm start

Then open localhost:8000 in a browser.


The easiest way to use react-file-input is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process (using Browserify, Webpack, etc).

You can also use the standalone build by including dist/react-file-input.js in your page. If you use this, make sure you have already included React, and it is available as a global variable.

npm install @ranyefet/react-file-input --save


You can use any custom react component as FileInput children

var FileInput = require('@ranyefet/react-file-input');

<FileInput onChange={handleFileChanged}>
  <button>Select files...</button>


  • accept (string)
  • children (React element) required
  • className (string) - custom class name that will be applied to input container
  • disabled (bool) - controls input disabled attribute
  • name (string) default: 'file' - controls input name attribute
  • onChange (func) - callback to handle input onChange event
  • style (obj) - custom style object that will be applied to input container


Enhancements and pull requests are welcomed.

Development (src, lib and the build process)

NOTE: The source code for the component is in src. A transpiled CommonJS version (generated with Babel) is available in lib for use with node.js, browserify and webpack. A UMD bundle is also built to dist, which can be included without the need for any build system.

To build, watch and serve the examples (which will also watch the component source), run npm start. If you just want to watch changes to src and rebuild lib, run npm run watch (this is useful if you are working with npm link).
