Write HTML documents with custom tags and render them with your React components.

Renderdoc is a static document generator. It takes an input HTML document with custom tags. You provide the React components that implement the tags. The output file is the rendered HTML.


As input, you need two things: an input HTML file, and a directory that contains some React components.


Here is your input file: my-document.html

<Header>My Life Story</Header>
<Chapter title="The Beginning">
  It was a dark and stormy night.

In the components directory, you have these React components:

// components/Chapter.js
import React from 'react';
export default function Chapter({ title, children }) {
  return (
    <div className="Chapter">
// components/Header.js
import React from 'react';
export default function Header({ children }) {
  return <h1 className="Header">{children}</h1>;

// components/Page.js
import React from 'react';
export default function Page({ children }) {
  return (
        <meta charSet="utf-8" />

Run renderdoc on the source file. The components directory will be automatically used to load the components.

renderdoc my-document.html

The rendered output file:

<!doctype html>
    <meta charSet="utf-8" />
    <h1 class="Header">My Life Story</h1>
    <div class="Chapter">
      <h2>The Beginning</h2>
      It was a dark and stormy night.


  • The HTML inpujt must be well-formed XML. Every tag must be closed or self-closing.
  • The tags are case sensitive (that's because they're loaded by filename from the components directory)
  • You need to supply a parent component to act as a wrapper. To render a HTML page, you probably want a component that renders a <html> element with the children wrapped in a <body>
  • The final output will be prepended with <!doctype html> unless you disable this feature.
