Auto-resizing Input Component for React


A text input for React that resizes itself to the current content.

Demo & Examples

Live demo: jedwatson.github.io/react-input-autosize

To run the examples locally, run:

npm install
gulp dev

Then open localhost:8000 in a browser. This will also watch for file changes and rebuild the examples (includes live reload).

To just build the examples without the dev server or watch tasks, instead run:

gulp build-examples


The easiest way to use React-Input-Autosize is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process (using Browserify, etc).

You can also use the standalone build by including dist/AutosizeInput.js in your page. If you use this, make sure you have already included React and Underscore. (they must be available through a browserify-style require() call, standalone support is coming soon)

npm install react-input-autosize --save


React-Input-Autosize generates an input field, wrapped in a <div> tag so it can detect the size of its value. Otherwise it behaves very similarly to a standard React input.

var AutosizeInput = require('react-input-autosize');

    onChange={function(event) {
        // event.target.value contains the new value
