User-friendly React component to build queries.

Inspired by jQuery QueryBuilder

Using awesome Ant Design v4 for widgets

Demo page



  • Highly configurable
  • Fields can be of type:
    • simple (string, number, bool, date/time/datetime, list)
    • structs (will be displayed in selectbox as tree)
    • custom type (dev should add its own widget component in config for this)
  • Comparison operators can be:
    • binary (== != < > ..)
    • unary (is empty, is null)
    • 'between' (for numbers, dates, times)
    • complex operators like 'proximity'
  • Values of fields can be compared with:
    • values
    • another fields (of same type)
    • function (arguments also can be values/fields/funcs)
  • Reordering (drag-n-drop) support for rules and groups of rules
  • Using awesome Ant Design as UI framework with rich features.
    (But using custom widgets of another framework is possible, see below)
  • Export to MongoDb, SQL, JsonLogic or your custom format
  • Import from JsonLogic
  • TypeScript support (see types and demo in TS)

Getting started

Install: npm i react-awesome-query-builder (packages antd, typescript are optional)

See basic usage and API below.

Demo apps:

  • npm start - demo app with hot reload of demo code and local library code, uses TS, uses complex config to demonstrate anvanced usage.
  • npm run sandbox_ts - demo app with hot reload of only demo code (uses latest version of library from npm), uses TS, uses AntDesign widgets.
  • npm run sandbox_js - demo app with hot reload of only demo code (uses latest version of library from npm), not uses TS, uses vanilla widgets.

v2 Migration

From v2.0 of this lib AntDesign is now optional (peer) dependency, so you need to explicitly include antd (4.x) in package.json of your project if you want to use AntDesign UI.
Please import AntdConfig from react-awesome-query-builder/lib/config/antd and use it as base for your config (see below in usage).
Alternatively you can use BasicConfig for simple vanilla UI, which is by default.
Support of other UI frameworks (like Bootstrap, Material UI) are planned for future, see Other UI frameworks.


import React, {Component} from 'react';
import {Query, Builder, BasicConfig, Utils as QbUtils} from 'react-awesome-query-builder';
import AntdConfig from 'react-awesome-query-builder/lib/config/antd';
import 'react-awesome-query-builder/css/antd.less'; // or import "antd/dist/antd.css";
import 'react-awesome-query-builder/lib/css/styles.css';
import 'react-awesome-query-builder/lib/css/compact_styles.css'; //optional, for more compact styles
const InitialConfig = AntdConfig; // or BasicConfig

// You need to provide your own config. See below 'Config format'
const config = {
  fields: {
    qty: {
        label: 'Qty',
        type: 'number',
        fieldSettings: {
            min: 0,
        valueSources: ['value'],
        preferWidgets: ['number'],
    price: {
        label: 'Price',
        type: 'number',
        valueSources: ['value'],
        fieldSettings: {
            min: 10,
            max: 100,
        preferWidgets: ['slider', 'rangeslider'],
    color: {
        label: 'Color',
        type: 'select',
        valueSources: ['value'],
        fieldSettings: {
          listValues: [
            { value: 'yellow', title: 'Yellow' },
            { value: 'green', title: 'Green' },
            { value: 'orange', title: 'Orange' }
    is_promotion: {
        label: 'Promo?',
        type: 'boolean',
        operators: ['equal'],
        valueSources: ['value'],

// You can load query value from your backend storage (for saving see `Query.onChange()`)
const queryValue = {"id": QbUtils.uuid(), "type": "group"};

class DemoQueryBuilder extends Component {
    state = {
      tree: QbUtils.checkTree(QbUtils.loadTree(queryValue), config),
      config: config

    render = () => (

    renderBuilder = (props) => (
      <div className="query-builder-container" style={{padding: '10px'}}>
        <div className="query-builder qb-lite">
            <Builder {...props} />

    renderResult = ({tree: immutableTree, config}) => (
      <div className="query-builder-result">
          <div>Query string: <pre>{JSON.stringify(QbUtils.queryString(immutableTree, config))}</pre></div>
          <div>MongoDb query: <pre>{JSON.stringify(QbUtils.mongodbFormat(immutableTree, config))}</pre></div>
          <div>SQL where: <pre>{JSON.stringify(QbUtils.sqlFormat(immutableTree, config))}</pre></div>
          <div>JsonLogic: <pre>{JSON.stringify(QbUtils.jsonLogicFormat(immutableTree, config))}</pre></div>

    onChange = (immutableTree, config) => {
      // Tip: for better performance you can apply `throttle` - see `examples/demo`
      this.setState({tree: immutableTree, config: config});

      const jsonTree = QbUtils.getTree(immutableTree);
      // `jsonTree` can be saved to backend, and later loaded to `queryValue`


<Query />


  • {...config} - destructured query CONFIG
  • value - query value in internal Immutable format
  • onChange - callback when value changed. Params: value (in Immutable format), config.
  • renderBuilder - function to render query builder itself. Takes 1 param props you need to pass into <Builder {...props} />.


  • If you put query builder component inside Material-UI's <Dialog /> or <Popover />, please:
    • use prop disableEnforceFocus={true} for dialog or popver
    • set css .MuiPopover-root, .MuiDialog-root { z-index: 900 !important; } (or 1000 for AntDesign v3)

<Builder />

Render this component only inside Query.renderBuilder() like in example above:

  renderBuilder = (props) => (
    <div className="query-builder-container">
      <div className="query-builder qb-lite">
          <Builder {...props} />

Wrapping <Builder /> in div.query-builder is necessary.
Optionally you can add class .qb-lite to it for showing action buttons (like delete rule/group, add, etc.) only on hover, which will look cleaner.
Wrapping in div.query-builder-container is necessary if you put query builder inside scrollable block.


  • Save, load: #### getTree (immutableValue, light = true) -> Object Convert query value from internal Immutable format to JS format. You can use it to save value on backend in onChange callback of <Query>.
    Tip: Use light = false in case if you want to store query value in your state in JS format and pass it as value of <Query> after applying loadTree() (which is not recommended because of double conversion). See issue #190 #### loadTree (jsValue, config) -> Immutable Convert query value from JS format to internal Immutable format. You can use it to load saved value from backend and pass as value prop to <Query> (don't forget to also apply checkTree()). #### checkTree (immutableValue, config) -> Immutable Validate query value corresponding to config. Invalid parts of query (eg. if field was removed from config) will be always deleted. Invalid values (values not passing validateValue in config, bad ranges) will be deleted if showErrorMessage is false OR marked with errors if showErrorMessage is true. #### isValidTree (immutableValue) -> Boolean If showErrorMessage in config.settings is true, use this method to check is query has bad values.
  • Export: #### queryString (immutableValue, config, isForDisplay = false) -> String Convert query value to custom string representation. isForDisplay = true can be used to make string more "human readable". #### mongodbFormat (immutableValue, config) -> Object Convert query value to MongoDb query object. #### sqlFormat (immutableValue, config) -> String Convert query value to SQL where string. #### jsonLogicFormat (immutableValue, config) -> {logic, data, errors} Convert query value to JsonLogic format. If there are no errors, logic will be rule object and data will contain all used fields with null values ("template" data).
  • Import: #### loadFromJsonLogic (jsonLogicObject, config) -> Immutable Convert query value from JsonLogic format to internal Immutable format.

Config format




Other UI frameworks

Currently there are 2 collections of widgets:

Let's say you want to create new collection of Bootstrap widgets to be used in this lib (and submit PR which is always welcomed!).
You can use vanilla widgets as skeleton.
Then to enable new widgets you need to create config overrides like this: antdesign config


To build the component locally, clone this repo then run:
npm install
npm start
Then open localhost:3001 in a browser.


  • npm test - Run tests with Karma and update coverage. Recommended before commits. Requires Node.js v10+
  • npm run lint - Run ESLint. Recommended before commits.
  • npm run lint-fix - Run ESLint with --fix option. Recommended before commits.
  • npm run build-examples - Build examples with webpack. Output path: examples
  • npm run build-npm - Build npm module that can be published. Output path: lib

Feel free to open PR to add new reusable types/widgets/operators (eg., regex operator for string, IP type & widget).
Pull Requests are always welcomed :)
