React Portals in 3 Minutes

React Portals – An API for rendering components outside your app’s DOM hierarchy.

  • Perfect for scenarios where CSS styles are restraining your elements.
  • You can use it for Modals, Tooltips, Floating menus, Widgets.
  • Instead of returning an element in a component’s render method, return a portal.
  • A brilliant thing about portals is that a component rendered in a portal acts as if it is still in the React tree
