Dependencies

Majority of PrimeReact components (95%) are native and there are some exceptions having 3rd party dependencies such as Google Maps for GMap.

In addition, components require PrimeIcons for icons and react-transition-group for animations.

dependencies: {
    "react": "^17.0.1",
    "react-dom": "^17.0.1",
    "react-transition-group": "^4.4.1",
    "primeicons": "^5.0.0"
}

Styles

The css dependencies are as follows, note that you may change the theme with another one of your choice.

primereact/resources/themes/lara-light-indigo/theme.css
primereact/resources/primereact.min.css
primeicons/primeicons.css

If you are using a bundler such as webpack with a css loader you may also import them to your main application component, an example from create-react-app would be.

import 'primereact/resources/themes/lara-light-indigo/theme.css';
import 'primereact/resources/primereact.min.css';
import 'primeicons/primeicons.css';

QuickStart

An example application based on create-react-app is available at github.

TypeScript

Typescript is fully supported as type definition files are provided in the npm package of PrimeReact. A sample typescript-primereact application is available as well at github.
