npm install react-highcharts --save



npm install react-highcharts highcharts react --save

const React = require('react');
const ReactDOM = require('react-dom');

const ReactHighcharts = require('react-highcharts'); // Expects that Highcharts was loaded in the code.

const config = {
  /* HighchartsConfig */

ReactDOM.render(<ReactHighcharts config = {config}></ReactHighcharts>, document.body);

Optional after-render callback

const afterRender = (chart) => { /* do stuff with the chart  */ };
<ReactHighcharts config = {config} callback = {afterRender}></ReactHighcharts>

Passing properties to the wrapping DOM element

<ReactHighcharts config = {config} domProps = {{id: 'chartId'}}></ReactHighcharts>

Accessing Highcharts API After Render

For access to methods & properties from the Highcharts library you can use ReactHighcharts.Highcharts. For example, the Highcharts options are available via ReactHighcharts.Highcharts.getOptions().
Highcharts provides an API for manipulating a chart after the initial render. See the Methods and Properties in the documentation. Here's how you access it:
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  componentDidMount() {
    let chart = this.refs.chart.getChart();
    chart.series[0].addPoint({x: 10, y: 12});

  render() {
    return <ReactHighcharts config={config} ref="chart"></ReactHighcharts>;

Limiting Highchart Rerenders

Rerendering a highcharts graph is expensive. You can pass in a isPureConfig option to the ReactHighcharts component, which will keep the highcharts graph from being updated so long as the provided config is referentially equal to its previous value. There is also neverReflow property.
