npm version npm downloads license

Examples available here:



npm install react-dragline --save


yarn add install react-dragline

If you aren't using browserify/webpack, a UMD version of react-dragline is available. It expects external React and ReactDOM.


import { DraggableContainer, DraggableChild } from 'react-dragline'

class Example extends React.Component {
  state = [
    { id: 1, position: {x: 100, y: 10} },
    { id: 2, position: {x: 400, y: 200} },

  render() {
    const containerStyle = {
      height: 600,
      position: 'relative',

    return (
      <DraggableContainer style={containerStyle}>
{ id, position }, index) => {
            const style = {
              width: 100,
              height: 100,
              cursor: 'move',
              background: '#8ce8df',

            return (
              <DraggableChild key={id} defaultPosition={position}>
                <div style={style} />

ReactDOM.render(<Example />, container)
