MountAtSelector

This React component allows rendering components like a Modal outside the main React app.

Inspired by a blog of Ryan Zec: https://blog.komand.com/how-to-render-components-outside-the-main-react-app

Install

npm install --save mount-at-selector

Use

Create an extra container like #myModal in your HTML:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="myModal"></div>
    <div id="app"></div>
  </body>
</html>

Create a MountAtSelector component in your React app:

import React from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
import MountAtSelector from 'mount-at-selector'
 
ReactDOM.render(
  <div>
    <p>
      Content rendered inside the React app...
    </p>
 
    <MountAtSelector selector="#myModal">
      <div>
        I'm rendered inside the #myModal element,
        outside of the React app.
      </div>
    </MountAtSelector>
  </div>,
  document.getElementById('app')
)
