React Body Backgroundcolor
Provides a declarative way to specify in a single-page app. This component can be used on server side as well.
Built with React Side Effect.


npm install --save react-body-backgroundcolor

Dependencies: React >= 0.13.0


  • Does not emit DOM, not even a <noscript>;
  • Like a normal React compoment, can use its parent's props and state;
  • Can be defined in many places throughout the application;
  • Works just as well with isomorphic apps.


class SomeComponent {
  render() {
    return (
      <BodyBackgroundColor backgroundColor='#FF00FF'>
        <h1>Home, sweet home.</h1>

Server Usage

If you use it on server, call BodyBackgroundColor.rewind() after rendering components to string to retrieve the color. You can then embed this color into HTML page template.
Because this component keeps track of mounted instances, you have to make sure to call rewind on server, or you'll get a memory leak.
