A react component to initialize Intercom in your application

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import reactIntercomWidget from '';



A component to configure and enable Intercom in your react-based application. react-intercom-widget is meant to support both the legacy and current versions of intercom messenger. If you run into issues, please submit an issue. Pull requests are also welcome!


npm i react-intercom-widget --save


Inside of your application where you would be running Intercom, insert Intercom:

import React from 'react';
import Intercom from 'react-intercom-widget';

export class App extends React.Component {

  render () {
    const { appUser } = this.props;
    const user = {

    return (
      <div className="app">
        <Intercom appID="az33rewf" { ...user } />

This loads the javascript required to boot Intercom, and will update the settings when the props change. For example, when the active user changes in the application, new props should be passed to reflect that, and Intercom will be registering the new user. react-intercom-widget also exports the singleton window.Intercom if you'd rather interact with a module than window. For example, where you'd like to log an event in your application:

import { IntercomAPI } from 'react-intercom-widget';
IntercomAPI('trackEvent', 'invited-friend');

This is, of course, equivalent to just calling window.Intercom('trackEvent', 'invited-friend'); or even Intercom('trackEvent', 'invited-friend');.
