Easily add Easter eggs to your React app

Build Status Coverage Status Code Climate Issue Count npm version


With npm:

$ npm install --save-dev react-easter

Or with Yarn:

$ yarn add react-easter


The usage is very simple, there is just a couple of props to pass.

const EasterEgg = require('react-easter');

// ...

render() {
  return (
        keys={/* Array of keys to type to trigger the easter egg */}
        simultaneous={/* Add this prop if keys should be pressed all together */}
        timeout={/* Duration to show your easter egg, easter egg is displayed forever if prop is not set */}>
      {/* Your easter egg JSX goes here */}

You can add react-easter anywhere in your component hierarchy, because it adds a global keyboard events listener and doesn't stops any event bubbling.

For example:

const EasterEgg = require('react-easter');

export default class YourComponent extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const konamiCode = [

    return (
      <EasterEgg keys={konamiCode}
        <div class="overlay">
          <iframe class="sexy-nude-geek-girls-playing-mario"
                  allowfullscreen />


  • keys – Just array of string representing each button to be pressed;
  • simultaneous – Set this prop if user should press buttons all together;
  • timeout – Amount of time in milliseconds while easter egg is displayed.

Supported keys

All alphabetic letters and numbers could be passed as is, i.e. letter "a" is just "a".

If you use simultaneous mode and you have the Shift button in your hotkey combination, please set the unmodified buttons.

For example, to have a Shift+! hotkey, you should pass keys={["shift", "1"]}, because "Shift" and "1" pressed together produce "!".


Project uses react-shortcut to handle keyboard shortcuts.
