🛠 Typeform Vanilla Embed Library

Typeform/embed is the core embed library that lets you embed typeforms to your website using vanilla JavaScript.

Installation

As NPM package

Install using your favourite package manager:

yarn add @typeform/embed

or

npm install --save @typeform/embed

Import the lib, CSS and create your embed:

import { createWidget } from '@typeform/embed'
import '@typeform/embed/build/css/widget.css'
createWidget('<form-id>', { container: document.querySelector('#form') })

From CDN

As HTML, the CSS is imported automatically. Place this code where you want to display your form.

<div data-tf-widget="<form-id>"></div>
<script src="//embed.typeform.com/next/embed.js"></script>

Via JavaScript for more control and specific integration.

<button id="button">open form</button>
<script src="//embed.typeform.com/next/embed.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//embed.typeform.com/next/css/popup.css" />
<script>
  const { open, close, toggle, refresh } = window.tf.createPopup('<form-id>')
  document.querySelector('#button').onclick = toggle
</script>

How to get form id of your form?

You can find <form-id> from the public URL of your form:

  • https://form.typeform.com/to/<form-id>

Or from admin panel URL:

  • https://admin.typeform.com/form/<form-id>/*

Configuration

Embed types

Widget

<div id="form"></div>
<script>
  const { refresh, unmount } = createWidget('<form-id>', {
    container: document.querySelector('#form'),
    ...options,
  })
</script>

The createWidget method returns 2 functions:

  • refresh - reloads the form
  • unmount - unmounts the form (you should use this when you implement this lib in React manually)

Modal windows: popup, slider, sidetab, popover

  • popup: createPopup('<form-id>', options)
  • slider: createSlider('<form-id>', options)
  • sidetab: createSidetab('<form-id>', options)
  • popover: createPopover('<form-id>', options)
<button id="button">open form</button>
<script>
  const { open, close, toggle, refresh } = createPopup('<form-id>')
  document.querySelector('#button').onclick = toggle
</script>

Each of the create* methods for modal windows return 4 functions:

  • open - open the modal window (popup, slider, sidetab or popover) and display the form
  • close - close the modal window and hide the form
  • toggle - open when closed, close when opened
  • refresh - reloads the form
  • unmount - unmounts the form (you should use this when you implement this lib in React manually)

Closing and opening a typeform in modal window will restart the progress from the beginning. However answers will be saved in browsers local storage.
