Using with Server-Side Rendering
The KendoReact components can be used in applications that utilize server-side rendering (SSR) to achieve faster initial loading times.
KendoReact server-side rendering support provides the ability to render KendoReact UI components on your React pages from servers such as Express. This is achieved by utilizing the renderToString method that comes from the ReactDOMServer object. The method allows to pre-render the HTML on the server and send to the client the already rendered HTML for faster loading speed and SEO optimization.
Using any of the UI components in the KendoReact library requires either a commercial license key or an active trial license key.
Since version 5.16.0 (26 July 2023) of KendoReact, a missing license causes a watermark to appear over selected components. For more information, see the Invalid License section.
To experience the full potential of the KendoReact components, follow the license activation instructions and hide the invalid/not-activated license messages and attributes. You can skip this step if your application already contains a KendoReact license file.
