React Introduction to Server-Side Rendering

Rendering components

There are two options to render components on server: renderToString and renderToStaticMarkup.


This will render React components to HTML on server. This function will also add data-react- properties to HTML elements so React on client won't have to render elements again.

import { renderToString } from "react-dom/server";
renderToString(<App />);


This will render React components to HTML, but without data-react- properties, it is not recommended to use components that will be rendered on client, because components will rerender.

import { renderToStaticMarkup } from "react-dom/server";
renderToStaticMarkup(<App />);
