You can use npm or yarn package managers
$ npm i --save react-hyper-modal


$ yarn add react-hyper-modal


Controlled modal component

import React from 'react';
import HyperModal from 'react-hyper-modal';


class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      isModalOpen: false,


  openModal => this.setState({ isModalOpen: true });
  closeModal => this.setState({ isModalOpen: false });


  render() {
    const { isModalOpen } = this.state;
    return (
        Your awesome modal content

Uncontrolled modal component

import React from 'react';
import HyperModal from 'react-hyper-modal';


const MyComponent = () => {
  return (
      renderOpenButton={(requestOpen) => {
        return (
          <button onClick={requestOpen}>Open uncontrolled modal</button>

Stackable content example

To use stackable content you should use ModalStack component and children as function. Every child of ModalStack will represent a different layout.

import React from 'react';
import HyperModal, { ModalStack, ModalStackProps } from 'react-hyper-modal';


const Component = () => {
  const [index, setIndex] = React.useState(0)
  return (
      renderOpenButton={requestOpen => (
        <button type="button" className={styles.button} onClick={requestOpen}>Open stackable modal</button>
      {(props: ModalStackProps) => (
        <ModalStack {...props}> // !!! It's very important to provide props to ModalStack
          <div style={{ color: 'red' }}>
            <button onClick={() => setIndex(1)}>open nested</button>
            <button onClick={() => props.handleClose()}>close</button>
            <button onClick={() => setIndex(2)}>open nested</button>
            <button onClick={() => setIndex(0)}>close nested</button>
            <button onClick={() => setIndex(1)}>close nested</button>
            <button onClick={() => props.handleClose()}>close</button>

That's it! 🍰✨
