A draggable and resizable grid layout with responsive breakpoints, for React.


React-Grid-Layout is a grid layout system much like Packery or Gridster, for React.

Unlike those systems, it is responsive and supports breakpoints. Breakpoint layouts can be provided by the user or autogenerated.

RGL is React-only and does not require jQuery.

Install the React-Grid-Layout package package using npm:


Install the React-Grid-Layout package package using npm:

npm install react-grid-layout

Include the following stylesheets in your application:



Use ReactGridLayout like any other component. The following example below will produce a grid with three items where:

  • users will not be able to drag or resize item a
  • item b will be restricted to a minimum width of 2 grid blocks and a maximum width of 4 grid blocks
  • users will be able to freely drag and resize item c
import GridLayout from 'react-grid-layout';

class MyFirstGrid extends React.Component {
  render() {
    // layout is an array of objects, see the demo for more complete usage
    var layout = [
      {i: 'a', x: 0, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2, static: true},
      {i: 'b', x: 1, y: 0, w: 3, h: 2, minW: 2, maxW: 4},
      {i: 'c', x: 4, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2}
    return (
      <GridLayout className="layout" layout={layout} cols={12} rowHeight={30} width={1200}>
        <div key="a">a</div>
        <div key="b">b</div>
        <div key="c">c</div>

You may also choose to set layout properties directly on the children:

import GridLayout from 'react-grid-layout';

class MyFirstGrid extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <GridLayout className="layout" cols={12} rowHeight={30} width={1200}>
        <div key="a" data-grid={{x: 0, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2, static: true}}>a</div>
        <div key="b" data-grid={{x: 1, y: 0, w: 3, h: 2, minW: 2, maxW: 4}}>b</div>
        <div key="c" data-grid={{x: 4, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2}}>c</div>

Usage without Browserify/Webpack

A module usable in a &lt;script&gt; tag is included here. It uses a UMD shim and excludes React, so it must be otherwise available in your application, either via RequireJS or on window.React.
