In this blog, you will learn how to use React.js with PrestaShop Front Office Controller.

In the world of e-commerce, providing a seamless and interactive shopping experience is paramount. One way to achieve this is by integrating React.js into your PrestaShop store. This tutorial walks you through the process of integrating React.js to create a dynamic product management system. This allows you to add new products without reloading the page.


  • Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Make sure you have Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) installed on your machine.
  • Knowledge of PrestaShop and its templates

Step 1: Set up the environment: First, create a new directory for your project and move there.

mkdir prestashop-react-integration
cd prestashop-react-integration

Generate a new React app within your project directory.

npx create-react-app my-prestashop-react-app
cd my-prestashop-react-app

Step 3: Develop React components:

internal src Open your React app folder App.js Replace the default code with:

import React,  Component  from 'react';
import axios from 'axios';

class App extends Component 
  state = 
    products: [],
    newProductName: '',


    axios.get('/api-products.php') // Replace with your API endpoint
      .then(response => 
        this.setState( products: );
      .catch(error => 

  handleProductNameChange = event => 
    this.setState( newProductName: );

  handleSubmit = event => 
      name: this.state.newProductName,
      .then(() => 
        this.setState( newProductName: '' );
      .catch(error => 

    return (
        <h1>Featured Products</h1>
 => (
        <form onSubmit=this.handleSubmit>
            placeholder="Product name"
          <button type="submit">Add Product</button>

export default App;

In this code, axios Get the data and send it to the API endpoint.

use axios Or use another HTTP library to retrieve data from the PrestaShop backend and display it in a React component.

Step 4: Build the React app:

Build a React app using:

npm install axios
npm run build

Step 5: Integrate your React app with PrestaShop: Copy the contents of build Copy the directory to a new folder within your PrestaShop project. react-app.

Step 6: Mount the React app: PrestaShop template files (e.g. index.tpl), insert the following code wherever you want your React app to appear.

<div id="react-app"></div>
<script src="path/to/react-app/static/js/main.hash.js"></script>

Step 7: Implement dynamic product management: Create an API endpoint in your PrestaShop project (e.g. api-products.php) to provide product data. Another API endpoint (e.g. api-add-product.php) must handle the addition of new products.

Step 8: Get updated product list: When you add new products using the form, the component automatically retrieves the updated product list from the API.

Integrating React.js into your PrestaShop store provides enhanced dynamic product management capabilities. Customers can now enjoy a modern shopping experience that allows them to seamlessly add products without reloading the page. This tutorial provides the foundation for integrating React.js with PrestaShop and allows you to further build on this concept to meet your own requirements.

Also note that there is no official support for React.js by PrestaShop, but you can use it at your own risk.
