What is React Albus?

React Albus is a React component library used to build declarative multi-step journeys (also known as Wizards). You define your step content and ordering and React Albus will manage the journey-related state for you.
React Albus is otherwise unopinionated and allows you to compose funcionality such as routing, animation, and analytics however you see fit.


npm install react-albus


import React from 'react';
import { Wizard, Steps, Step } from 'react-albus';

const Example = () => (
        render={({ next }) => (
            <button onClick={next}>Next</button>
        render={({ next, previous }) => (
            <button onClick={next}>Next</button>
            <button onClick={previous}>Previous</button>
        render={({ previous }) => (
            <button onClick={previous}>Previous</button>

export default Example;


Check out the demo page!




onNext(wizard): function (optional)
A function that will be called by <Wizard> to determine the next step to proceed to.

If you do not pass an onNext prop, <Wizard> will proceed directly to the next step.
render(wizard): function (optional)
A function that will be used as the render function of <Wizard>.


Wraps all of the <Step> components in your journey. The only direct children of <Steps> should be <Step> components.


step: object (optional)
An object describing the current step with the structure: { id: string }. Defining a step prop will make <Steps> a controlled component.


Wraps all the content that will be conditionally shown when the step is active.


id: string
Unique key for each step.
In addition to id, any additional props added to <Step> will be available on each step object. This can be used to add names, descriptions, or other metadata to each step.
<WithWizard> is an alias for <Step> that can be used to access context.wizard anywhere within the <Wizard> tree.


A higher order component that adds context.wizard as a wizard prop on the wrapped component.


<Wizard> provides an object on context with the following properties:
  • step (object): Describes the current step with structure: { id: string }.
  • steps (array): Array of step objects in the order they were declared within <Steps>.
  • history (object): The backing history object.
  • next() (function): Moves to the next step in order.
  • previous() (function): Moves to the previous step in order.
  • go(n) (function): Moves n steps in history.
  • push(id) (function): Pushes the step with corresponding id onto history.
  • replace(id) (function): Replaces the current step in history with the step with corresponding id.

Usage with React Router

Internally, React Albus uses history to maintain the ordering of steps. This makes integrating with React Router (or any other router) as easy as providing <Wizard> with history and basename props.
import React from 'react';
import { Route } from 'react-router-dom';
import { Wizard } from 'react-albus';

const RoutedWizard = ({ children }) =>
    render={({ history, match: { url } }) =>
      <Wizard history={history} basename={url}>

export default RoutedWizard;
