Installation

Install bbcode-to-react and peer dependencies via NPM

Import bbcode-to-react, example:

import React from 'react';
import parser from 'bbcode-to-react';
import { renderToString } from 'react-dom/server';

const Example = (props) => {
  return (
    <p>{parser.toReact('[b]strong[/b]')}</p>
  );
}

// render: <p><strong>strong</strong></p>
console.log(renderToString(<Example />));

Add new tag example

import React from 'react';
import parser, { Tag } from 'bbcode-to-react';

class YoutubeTag extends Tag {
  toReact() {
    // using this.getContent(true) to get it's inner raw text.
    const attributes = {
      src: this.getContent(true),
      width: this.params.width || 420,
      height: this.params.height || 315,
    };
    return (
      <iframe
        {...attributes}
        frameBorder="0"
        allowFullScreen
      />
    );
  }
}

class BoldTag extends Tag {
  toReact() {
    // using this.getComponents() to get children components.
    return (
      <b>{this.getComponents()}</b>
    );
  }
}

parser.registerTag('youtube', YoutubeTag); // add new tag
parser.registerTag('b', BoldTag); // replace exists tag

const Example = (props) => {
  return (
    <p>{parser.toReact('[youtube width="400"]https://www.youtube.com/embed/AB6RjNeDII0[/youtube]')}</p>

Credits

  • bbcodejs: bbcode-to-react uses the parser from bbcodejs, so much of the credit is due there.
  • reactstrap: bbcode-to-react uses the webpack config and publish scripts from reactstrap.
