    The idea for this library was to create a trip component library that is created in react way rather than json config, while still keeping the style in a separate css file built in such way that they can be easily overwritten and customized.

    Demo page

    Check example demo tour on github repo ./src/demo/Tour


    npm install react-rtg

    Basic usage

    import "react-rtg/build/index.css"; // import stylesheet - you can do it in sass files as well
    import React, {useState} from "react";
    import {Tour, Step} from "react-rtg";
    const TourGuide = ({isOpen, setOpen}) => {
        return (
            <Tour isOpen={isOpen} 
                  onClose={setOpen.bind(null, false)} 
                  onOpen={setOpen.bind(null, true)}>
                <Step placement="top-center">
                    <p>First step of tutorial placed on cenetr top of window</p>
                <Step selector="#buttonId" placement="bottom">
                    <p>Second on is under selected target element</p>
    const App = () => {
        const [isTourOpen, setIsTourOpen] = useState(false)
        return (
            <TourGuide isOpen={isTourOpen} setOpen={setIsTourOpen}/>
            <button id="buttonId" onClick={setIsTourOpen.bind(null, ture)}> 
                Start Tour
