We recommended using the component library through a package manager. Stream Chat React is based on top of Stream's JavaScript Client.

Install with NPM

npm install stream-chat stream-chat-react

Install with Yarn

yarn add stream-chat stream-chat-react

Install via CDN

In case you are not using a package manager, or you wish to build a simple proof of concept in CodePen for example, you can load the library through a direct script link. If you choose to do this, make sure you explicitly specify the version of the library to prevent breaking releases from affecting your app.

<!-- Replace VERSION with the version of stream-chat and stream-chat-react -->
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

With the installation out of the way, let's get started exploring the basics of the library.
