React Helmet

Just want to see the code? Check out the sample project.

React Helmet is a library that allows setting elements inside the <head> tag from anywhere in the render tree.

Make sure ReactJS.NET is up to date. You will need at least ReactJS.NET 4.0 (which is in public beta at the time of writing).

Expose React Helmet in your server bundle:

import Helmet from 'react-helmet';
global.Helmet = Helmet;

Add the render helper to the call to Html.React:

@using React.AspNet
@using React.RenderFunctions

    var helmetFunctions = new ReactHelmetFunctions();

@Html.React("RootComponent", new { exampleProp = "a" }, renderFunctions: new ChainedRenderFunctions(helmetFunctions))

    ViewBag.HelmetTitle = helmetFunctions.RenderedHelmet.GetValueOrDefault("title");

In your layout file, render the helmet title that is now in the ViewBag:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
