Storybook Addon Remix React Router

Storybook npm Release npm

Use Remix React Router in your stories.

🚨️ The package has been renamed storybook-addon-remix-react-router 🚨
     The migration is mandatory to support Storybook 8.

Recent changes

✅ Support for Storybook 8 with storybook-addon-remix-react-router@3.
✅ You can now use useStoryElement to inject the story at multiple points.
✅ The routing parameter now accept a string, that will be used both as the route path and the location pathname.

Getting Started

Install the package

npm i -D storybook-addon-remix-react-router

Add it to your storybook configuration:

// .storybook/main.ts

export default {
  addons: ['storybook-addon-remix-react-router'],
} satisfies StorybookConfig;

Decorate all stories of a component

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

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

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

export default {
  title: 'User Profile',
  render: () => <UserProfile />,
  decorators: [withRouter],
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: reactRouterParameters({
      location: {
        pathParams: { userId: '42' },
      routing: { path: '/users/:userId' },

Decorate a specific story

To change the config for a single story, you can do the following :

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

export default {
  title: 'User Profile',
  render: () => <UserProfile />,
  decorators: [withRouter],

export const FromHomePage = {
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: reactRouterParameters({
      location: {
        pathParams: { userId: '42' },
        searchParams: { tab: 'activityLog' },
        state: { fromPage: 'homePage' },
      routing: {
        path: '/users/:userId',
        handle: 'Profile',

Decorate all stories, globally

To wrap all your project's stories inside a router by adding the decorator in your preview.js file.

// .storybook/preview.js

export default {
  decorators: [withRouter],
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: reactRouterParameters({ ... }),
} satisfies Preview;


To specify anything related to the browser location, use the location property.

type LocationParameters = {
  path?: string | ((inferredPath: string, pathParams: Record<string, string>) => string | undefined);
  pathParams?: PathParams;
  searchParams?: ConstructorParameters<typeof URLSearchParams>[0];
  hash?: string;
  state?: unknown;

Inferred path

If location.path is not provided, the browser pathname will be generated using the joined paths from the routing property and the pathParams.

Path as a function

You can provide a function to path.
It will receive the joined paths from the routing property and the pathParams as parameters.
If the function returns a string, is will be used as is. It's up to you to call generatePath from react-router if you need to.
If the function returns undefined, it will fallback to the default behavior, just like if you didn't provide any value for location.path.


You can set routing to anything accepted by createBrowserRouter.
To make your life easier, storybook-addon-remix-react-router comes with some routing helpers :

export const MyStory = {
  parameters: {
    reactRouter: reactRouterParameters({
      routing: reactRouterOutlet(<MyOutlet />),

Routing Helpers

The following helpers are available out of the box :

reactRouterOutlet(); // Render a single outlet
reactRouterOutlets(); // Render multiple outlets
reactRouterNestedOutlets(); // Render multiple outlets nested one into another
reactRouterNestedAncestors(); // Render the story as an outlet of nested outlets

You can also create your own helper and use the exported type RoutingHelper to assist you :

import { RoutingHelper } from 'storybook-addon-remix-react-router';

const myCustomHelper: RoutingHelper = () => {
  // Routing creation logic

RouterRoute is basically the native RouteObject from react-router; augmented with { useStoryElement?: boolean }. If you want to accept a JSX and turn it into a RouterRoute, you can use the exported function castRouterRoute.

Use the story as the route element

Just set { useStoryElement: true } in the routing config object.

Dedicated panel

Navigation events, loader and actions are logged, for you to better understand the lifecycle of your components.
