Getting Started

Install the package

yarn add -D storybook-addon-react-router-v6

Add it to your storybook configuration:

// .storybook/main.js
module.exports = {
    addons: ["storybook-addon-react-router-v6"],
};

How to use it as a component decorator

To add the router to all the stories of a component, simply add it to the decorators array.

Note that the parameters.reactRouter property is optional, by default the router will render the component at /.

import { withRouter } from 'storybook-addon-react-router-v6';

export default {
  title: 'User Profile',
  component: UserProfile,
  decorators: [withRouter],
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: {
      routePath: '/users/:userId',
      routeParams: { userId: '42' },
    }
  }
};

export const Example = () => <UserProfile />;

Usage at the story level

If you want to change the router config just for one story you can do the following :

import { withRouter } from 'storybook-addon-react-router-v6';

export default {
  title: 'User Profile',
  component: UserProfile,
  decorators: [withRouter],
};

export const Example = () => <UserProfile />;
Example.story = {
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: {
      routePath: '/users/:userId',
      routeParams: { userId: '42' },
      searchParams: { tab: 'activityLog' },
      routeState: { fromPage: 'homePage' },
    }
  }
};

Define a global default

If you want you can wrap all your stories inside a router by adding the decorator in your preview.js file.

// preview.js

export const decorators = [withRouter];

// you can also define global defaults parameters
export const parameters = {
  reactRouter: {
    // ...
  }
}

Outlet

If your component renders an outlet, you can use composition to render your outlet manually, or you can set the outlet property :

Composition (manually)
const CompositionTemplate = ({outlet, ...args}) => (
    <Routes>
        <Route path={"/"} element={<Menu {...args} />}>
            <Route index element={outlet} />
        </Route>
     </Routes>
);
    
export const Composition = CompositionTemplate.bind({});
Composition.args = {
    outlet: <OrdersSubMenu />
}

Usage of the outlet property :

export const MenuWithOrdersContext = () => <Menu />;
MenuWithOrdersContext.story = {
    parameters: {
        reactRouter: {
            routePath: '/account',
            outlet: <OrdersSubMenu />,
        }
    }
};

Descendant Routes

<Route> can be nested to handle layouts & outlets. But components can also render a <Routes> component with its set of <Route>, leading to a deep nesting called Descendant Routes. In this case, in order for the whole component tree to render in your story with matching params, you will need to set the browserPath property :

export default {
  title: 'Descendant Routes',
  component: SettingsPage, // this component renders a <Routes> with several <Route> with path like `billing` or `privacy`
  decorators: [withRouter],
};

Default.story = {
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: {
      browserPath: '/billing',
      }
  }
};

// If you want to render at a specific path, like `/settings`, React Router requires that you add a trailing wildcard
SpecificPath.story = {
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: {
      routePath: '/settings/*',
      browserPath: '/settings/billing',
    }
  }
}

Compatibility

This package aims to support Storybook > 6.4 and React > 16. Storybook versions prior 6.4 are very likely to work, I just didn't test them.

If you have an issue with any version, open an issue.

✅ Storybook 6.4
✅ Storybook 6.5

✅ React 16
✅ React 17
✅ React 18
