An adapter for react components to run as dijit widgets.



yarn add @episerver/react-to-dijit-adapter


npm install @episerver/react-to-dijit-adapter


Entry Point

The asEditorWidget function will take care or rendering your react component inside of a dijit widget. You should set the result of this function as the default export of the entry point file for your custom editor.

import React from "react";
import { asEditorWidget } from "@episerver/react-to-dijit-adapter";

const MyComponent = ({ onChange, value }) => {
    // Your component logic here...

export default asEditorWidget(MyComponent);

Your component will be passed the onChange and value props which should be used to render the value and to notify when the value changes and a new render should occur.


In order to build and run the component in Episerver CMS you will need to configure your build to do two things:

  1. Output the bundle as AMD format with the default export as the library export.
  2. Mark dojo/_base/declare and dijit/_WidgetBase as external dependencies.

The following is an example of the changes needed in a webpack config. Similar changes should be done if using another bundling tool, e.g. rollup, or parcel.

module.exports = {
    output: {
        libraryTarget: "amd",
        libraryExport: "default",
    externals: [

Using Custom Props

It is possible to pass custom props to your editor by using either an EditorDescriptor or an IMetadataAware attribute. In both scenarios, the custom props that you want to pass to your editor should be added to an object that is assigned to the "editorProps" key in the EditorConfiguration dictionary. For example:

[AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Property, AllowMultiple = false)]
public class MyEditorPropsAttribute : Attribute, IMetadataAware
    public void OnMetadataCreated(ModelMetadata metadata)
        if (!(metadata is ExtendedMetadata extendedMetadata))

        extendedMetadata.EditorConfiguration["editorProps"] = new
            MyProp = "Hello, world!"

These will then be available via your component's props argument.

const MyComponent = ({ onChange, value, myProp }) => {
    // Your component logic here...
