    react-image-holder

    Build Status

    An <img /> component for React which can render real images as well use an offline placeholder as a fallback if need be.

    All placeholders are rendered using holder.js, meaning they will work even when offline. You can even configure the component to always render a placeholder for all its instances.

    Installation

    $ npm install react-image-holder

    Examples

    All examples assume you have require()-d the component:

    var Img = require('react-image-holder');

    A real image

    var realImage = (
      <Img src="http://animalia-life.com/data_images/cat/cat5.jpg" />
    );

    Output:

    <img src="http://animalia-life.com/data_images/cat/cat5.jpg" />

    Additional attributes

    var realImage = (
      <Img src="http://animalia-life.com/data_images/cat/cat5.jpg" 
        width="802"
        height="450"
        className="cat-photo" />
    );

    Output:

    <img width="802" height="450" class="cat-photo" src="http://animalia-life.com/data_images/cat/cat5.jpg" />

    Use a placeholder instead

    var realImage = (
      <Img src="http://animalia-life.com/data_images/cat/cat5.jpg" 
        width="802"
        height="450"
        className="cat-photo" 
        usePlaceholder={true}
        />
    );

    Output:

    <img class="cat-photo" data-src="holder.js/802x450?auto=true&theme=vine" />

    Holder.js then processes the above tag and renders a placeholder.

    Setting placeholder properties

    var placeholderProps = {
      theme: 'blue',
      size: 50,
      auto: false,
    };
     
    var realImage = (
      <Img src="http://animalia-life.com/data_images/cat/cat5.jpg" 
        width="802"
        height="450"
        usePlaceholder={true}
        placeholder={placeholderProps}
        />
    );

    Output:

    <img data-src="holder.js/802x450?auto=false&size=50&theme=blue" />

    See holder.js property list for all available properties.

    Global placeholders

    Rather than passing the usePlaceholder property to each instance of the component you can also set this property's default value at the start of your app:

    Img.DEFAULT_PROPS.usePlaceholder = true;

    Now all subsequent instances of the component will automatically use a placeholder image. And you can still override the setting on per-instance basis!
