    react-select v3 + react-virtualized + react hooks!

    NPM JavaScript Style Guide

    This project came up after hours of trying to find an autocomplete component that supports large sets of data to be displayed and searched for while maintain performance. The only libraries out there that allow this functionality are either not maintained anymore, use outdated libraries or are poorly performant. I created a component that uses the Airbnb library called react-virtualized for the virtual data loading of elements and plugged it to the react-select (the most used autocomplete library for react) menu list.

    npm install --save react-select-virtualized

    Peer Dependencies



    The select component will be the same from react-select v3 so you will be able to use it with any select you already have.

    Try It!!!

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    Check Storybook for more examples

    What we do support and don't from react-select

    Components: Select, Async, Creatable

    • We support all the UI related props for the input. Extension also.

    • We do not support any related prop to the popup list. We extend it. *Sorry no extension of any component inside the list.*

    • Sorry no multi selection yet. (no isMulti)


    Options Shape

    const options = [
        value: 1,
        label: `guiyep`,
    const opsGroup = [
      { label: `Group Name Header`, options },


    import React from 'react';
    import Select from 'react-select-virtualized';
    const Example1 = () => <Select options={options} />;

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    With group

    import React from 'react';
    import Select from 'react-select-virtualized';
    const Example1 = () => <Select options={opsGroup} grouped />;

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    Usage Async

    import React from 'react';
    import { Async } from 'react-select-virtualized';
    const loadOptions = (input, callback) => {...};
    const Example1 = () => <Async loadOptions={loadOptions}/>
    const Example2 = () => <Async defaultOptions={options} loadOptions={loadOptions}/>
    const Example3 = () => <Async defaultOptions={opsGroup} loadOptions={loadOptions} grouped/>
    Async - No Group

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    Async - Grouped

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    Usage with creatable

    import React from 'react';
    import { Creatable } from 'react-select-virtualized';
    const Example1 = () => <Creatable options={options} />;

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    Usage with creatable and group


    Custom Styles

    For custom styling of the Input component read the react-select documentation.

    The styling in the menu list is by css.

    How to leave the menu open so I can style my menu?

    Set the menuIsOpen prop to true, create an options list with less than 100 elements and use css for adjusting your css.

    Use this example as a guidance

    Edit react-select-virtualized

    Possible classes

    react-select-virtualized grouped-virtualized-list-item flat-virtualized-item fast-option fast-option fast-option-focused fast-option-selected fast-option-create
