What technical skills do I need?

If you're a developer building a project with Prismic and React, we recommend that you already have a basic knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, React, and API querying.

If a developer is setting up Prismic for you, you won't need any technical knowledge. Prismic is designed to be used by anyone.

Why should I use Prismic with React?

Every great website starts with content.

React is an amazing tool for building interactive web apps, and it has a fantastic ecosystem of add-ons to manage every part of your website. So, how should you manage your content in React? The most important part of your website (the reason you have a website) deserves a tool.

Prismic is the tool for your content. What's more, Prismic is designed to integrate smoothly with React, with a logical content architecture that maps directly to React components.

Plus, Prismic adds some super-powers to your website, like image optimization, content versioning, scheduling, and user permissions.

Does Prismic have a React integration?

Yes, Prismic provides a React integration to fetch and display your content. This guide will teach you how to use Prismic's React package.

If you would like to contribute or provide feedback for the integration, see the integration's GitHub page for more details.

What package version does this guide use?

This guide uses @prismicio/react v2. If you have used Prismic with React previously, you may have used prismic-reactjs. For information on the differences between the two versions and how to upgrade from the old package to the new one, see the migration guide.

For information on how to use prismic-reactjs, see the README on npm.
