Spread the love

To implement HTML entity decode in React, we can use the he library.

To install it, we run

npm install he

Then we use it by writing

import he from "he";

export class FullInfoMedia extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const renderHTML = (escapedHTML: string) =>
      React.createElement("div", {
        dangerouslySetInnerHTML: { __html: escapedHTML },

    return (
        <div className="about-title">
          <div className="container">
            <div className="row">
              <img className="center-block" src={this.props.about.image} />

to call he.decode to decode the this.props.about.body string’s HTML entity values by returning a new string with the decoded value.
