This Astro integration enables server-side rendering and client-side hydration for your React components.

There are two ways to add integrations to your project. Let’s try the most convenient option first!

Astro includes a CLI tool for adding first party integrations: astro add. This command will:

  1. (Optionally) Install all necessary dependencies and peer dependencies
  2. (Also optionally) Update your astro.config.* file to apply this integration

To install @astrojs/react, run the following from your project directory and follow the prompts:

Terminal window
# Using NPM
npx astro add react
# Using Yarn
yarn astro add react
# Using PNPM
pnpm astro add react


If you run into any issues, feel free to report them to us on GitHub and try the manual installation steps below.

First, install the @astrojs/react integration like so:

Terminal window
npm install @astrojs/react


Most package managers will install associated peer dependencies as well. Still, if you see a “Cannot find package ‘react’” (or similar) warning when you start up Astro, you’ll need to install react and react-dom:

Terminal window
npm install react react-dom


Now, apply this integration to your astro.config.* file using the integrations property:

import { defineConfig } from 'astro/config';
import react from '@astrojs/react';

export default defineConfig({
  // ...
  integrations: [react()],


To use your first React component in Astro, head to our UI framework documentation. You’ll explore:

  • 📦 how framework components are loaded,
  • 💧 client-side hydration options, and
  • 🤝 opportunities to mix and nest frameworks together

For help, check out the #support channel on Discord. Our friendly Support Squad members are here to help!

You can also check our Astro Integration Documentation for more on integrations.

This package is maintained by Astro’s Core team. You’re welcome to submit an issue or PR!
