@vx/text

The @vx/text provides a better SVG <Text> component with the following features

Example

Simple demo to show off a useful feature. Since svg <text> itself does not support verticalAnchor, normally text rendered at 0,0 would be outside the viewport and thus not visible. By using <Text> with the verticalAnchor="start" prop, the text will now be visible as you'd expect.

import React from 'react';
import { render } from 'react-dom';
import { Text } from '@vx/text';

const App = () => (
  <svg>
    <Text verticalAnchor="start">Hello world</Text>
  </svg>
);

render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));

Installation

npm install --save @vx/text
