How to Install

$ npm install page-context --save

Getting Started

  1. Import PageContext types from page-context npm module
  2. Add contextTypes static property to your React component that needs access to document.title and other <head> elements
  3. Use function to manipulate document's <head> section

Here is an example:


import React, { PropTypes} from 'react';

function HomePage(props, { page }) {
   title: 'My Home Page',
   meta: [{ name: 'description', content: 'Some page description' }]
  return (
      <p>This is my personal home page.</p>

HomePage.contextTypes = { page: PropTypes.func.isRequired };

export default HomePage;


import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import PageContext from 'page-context';
import HomePage from './components/HomePage';

    <HomePage />

Server-side Rendering Example


import express from 'express';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom/server';
import PageContext from 'page-context';
import HomePage from './components/HomePage';

const app = express();

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  let page;
  const body = ReactDOM.renderToString(
    <PageContext ref={component => { page =; }}>
      <HomePage />
      <body><div id="root">${body}</div></body>
