Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.


Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Actions Status


React component to format number in an input or as a text


  1. Prefix, suffix and thousand separator.
  2. Custom format pattern.
  3. Masking.
  4. Custom formatting handler.
  5. Format number in an input or format as a simple text.

Live demo example

Jinno live demo



Through npm npm install react-number-format --save

Or get compiled development and production version from ./dist



import NumberFormat from 'react-number-format';


const NumberFormat = require('react-number-format');


import NumberFormat from 'react-number-format';
import { default as NumberFormat } from 'react-number-format';

In typescript you also have to enable "esModuleInterop": true in your tsconfig.json (


| Props | Options | Default | Description | | ------------------------ | --------------------------------------------------------------------- | -------- | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | | thousandSeparator | mixed: single character string or boolean true (true is default to ,) | none | Add thousand separators on number. Demo | | decimalSeparator | single character string | . | Support decimal point on a number. Demo | | thousandsGroupStyle | One of ['thousand', 'lakh', 'wan'] | thousand | Define the thousand grouping style, It support three types. thousand style (thousand) : 123,456,789, indian style (lakh) : 12,34,56,789, chinese style (wan) : 1,2345,6789. Demo | | decimalScale | number | none | If defined it limits to given decimal scale. Demo | | fixedDecimalScale | boolean | false | If true it add 0s to match given decimalScale. Demo | | allowNegative | boolean | true | allow negative numbers (Only when format option is not provided). Demo | | allowEmptyFormatting | boolean | false | Apply formatting to empty inputs. Demo | | allowLeadingZeros | boolean | false | Allow leading zeros at beginning of number. Demo | | prefix | String (ex : $) | none | Add a prefix before the number. Demo | | suffix | String (ex : /-) | none | Add a suffix after the number. Demo | | value | Number or String | null | Value to the number format. It can be a float number, or formatted string. If value is string representation of number (unformatted), isNumericString props should be passed as true. Demo. | | defaultValue | Number or String | null | Value to be used as default value if value is not provided. The format of defaultValue should be similar as defined for the value. Demo. | | isNumericString | boolean | false | If value is passed as string representation of numbers (unformatted) then this should be passed as true. Demo | | displayType | String: text / input | input | If input it renders a input element where formatting happens as you input characters. If text it renders it as a normal text in a span formatting the given value. Demo | | type | One of ['text', 'tel', 'password'] | text | Input type attribute. Demo | | format | String : Hash based ex (#### #### #### ####) Or Function | none | If format given as hash string allow number input inplace of hash. If format given as function, component calls the function with unformatted number and expects formatted number. Demo | | removeFormatting | (formattedValue) => numericString | none | If you are providing custom format method and it add numbers as format you will need to add custom removeFormatting logic. Demo | | mask | String (ex : _) | ' ' | If mask defined, component will show non entered placed with masked value. Demo | | customInput | Component Reference | input | This allow supporting custom inputs with number format. | | onValueChange | (values, sourceInfo) => {} | none | onValueChange handler accepts values object. Demo | | isAllowed | (values) => true or false | none | A checker function to check if input value is valid or not. If this function returns false, the onChange method will not get triggered. Demo | | renderText | (formattedValue, customProps) => React Element | null | A renderText method useful if you want to render formattedValue in different element other than span. It also returns the custom props that are added to the component which can allow passing down props to the rendered element. Demo | | getInputRef | (elm) => void | null | Method to get reference of input, span (based on displayType prop) or the customInput's reference. See Getting reference. Demo | | allowedDecimalSeparators | array of char | none | Characters which when pressed result in a decimal separator. When missing, decimal separator and '.' are used. | | customNumerals | array of string | none | an array of 10 single-character strings with represent numerals in different locales. ranging from 0 - 9. the result will be converted to english numeral and treated as number |

Other than this it accepts all the props which can be given to a input or span based on displayType you selected.

values object

values object is on following format

  formattedValue: '$23,234,235.56', //value after applying formatting
  value: '23234235.56', //non formatted value as numeric string 23234235.56, if you are setting this value to state make sure to pass isNumericString prop to true
  floatValue: 23234235.56 //floating point representation. For big numbers it can have exponential syntax

Its recommended to use formattedValue / value / floatValue based on the initial state (it should be same as the initial state format) which you are passing as value prop. If you are saving the value key on state make sure to pass isNumericString prop to true.

Notes and quirks

  1. Value can be passed as string or number, but if it is passed as string it should be either formatted value or if it is a numeric string, you have to set isNumericString props to true.

  2. Value as prop will be rounded to given decimal scale if format option is not provided.

  3. If you want to block floating number set decimalScale to 0.

  4. Use type as tel when you are providing format prop. This will change the mobile keyboard layout to have only numbers. In other case use type as text, so user can type decimal separator.

  5. onChange no longer gets values object. You need to use onValueChange instead. onChange/onFocus/onBlur and other input events will be directly passed to the input.

  6. Its recommended to use formattedValue / value / floatValue based on the initial state (it should be same as the initial state format) which you are passing as value prop. If you are saving the value key on state make sure to pass isNumericString prop to true.

  7. onValueChange is not same as onChange. It gets called on whenever there is change in value which can be caused by any event like change or blur event or by a prop change. It also provides a second argument which contains the event object and the reason for this function trigger.


Prefix and thousand separator : Format currency as text. Demo

var NumberFormat = require('react-number-format');

<NumberFormat value={2456981} displayType={'text'} thousandSeparator={true} prefix={'$'} />;

Output : $2,456,981

Custom renderText method.

var NumberFormat = require('react-number-format');

  renderText={(value, props) => <div {...props}>{value}</div>}

Output : <div class="foo"> $2,456,981 </div>

Format with pattern : Format credit card as text. Demo

<NumberFormat value={4111111111111111} displayType={'text'} format="#### #### #### ####" />

Output : 4111 1111 1111 1111

Prefix and thousand separator : Format currency in input. Demo

<NumberFormat thousandSeparator={true} prefix={'$'} />

Screencast example

Indian(lakh) style and chinese(wan) style number grouping. Demo

Indian (lakh) style grouping

<NumberFormat thousandSeparator={true} thousandsGroupStyle="lakh" prefix={'₹'} value={123456789} />

Output: ₹12,34,56,789

Chinese (wan) style grouping. Demo

<NumberFormat thousandSeparator={true} thousandsGroupStyle="wan" prefix={'¥'} value={123456789} />

Output: ¥1,2345,6789

Maintaining change value on state

  onValueChange={(values) => {
    const { formattedValue, value } = values;
    // formattedValue = $2,223
    // value ie, 2223
    this.setState({ profit: formattedValue });

Accessing event and the source for onValueChangeTrigger

  onValueChange={(values, sourceInfo) => {
    const { formattedValue, value } = values;
    // Event is a Synthetic Event wrapper which holds target and other information. Source tells whether the reason for this function being triggered was an 'event' or due to a 'prop' change
    const { event, source } = sourceInfo;

Format with pattern : Format credit card in an input. Demo

<NumberFormat format="#### #### #### ####" />

Screencast example

Format with mask : Format credit card in an input

<NumberFormat format="#### #### #### ####" mask="_" />

Screencast example

Format with mask as array

Mask can also be a array of string. Each item corresponds to the same index #.

<NumberFormat format="##/##" placeholder="MM/YY" mask={['M', 'M', 'Y', 'Y']} />

Screencast example

Custom format method : Format credit card expiry time

function limit(val, max) {
  if (val.length === 1 && val[0] > max[0]) {
    val = '0' + val;

  if (val.length === 2) {
    if (Number(val) === 0) {
      val = '01';

      //this can happen when user paste number
    } else if (val > max) {
      val = max;

  return val;

function cardExpiry(val) {
  let month = limit(val.substring(0, 2), '12');
  let year = val.substring(2, 4);

  return month + (year.length ? '/' + year : '');

<NumberFormat format={cardExpiry} />;

Screencast example

Format phone number

<NumberFormat format="+1 (###) ###-####" mask="_" />

Screencast example

Custom Numeral

  const persianNumeral = ['۰', '۱', '۲', '۳', '۴', '۵', '۶', '۷', '۸', '۹']
  <NumberFormat customNumerals={persianNumeral} />;

Limit input value to a maximum limit

const MAX_VAL = 1400;
const withValueLimit = ({ floatValue }) => floatValue <= MAX_VAL;
<NumberFormat value={12} isAllowed={withValueLimit} />;

It is sensible to use floatValue in the withValueLimit check because it provides the exact value (see values object). value is rounded to your configured decimalScale; hence it may omit a part of the precision of the actual value. Given an entered value of 1400.4 and the default decimalScale, value would be transferred as 1400 in the values object and pass the above withValueLimit check. In this case, it is a false positive that can be prevented using floatValue. However, you might want to use value to automatically get the rounded number according to your decimalScale.

Screencast example

Show mask on empty input

<NumberFormat format="+1 (###) ###-####" allowEmptyFormatting mask="_" />

Screencast example

Custom Inputs

You can easily extend your custom input with number format. But custom input should have all input props.

import TextField from 'material-ui/TextField';
<NumberFormat customInput={TextField} format="#### #### #### ####" />

Screencast example

Passing custom input props All custom input props and number input props are passed together.

  hintText="Some placeholder"
  format="#### #### #### ####"

Getting reference

As ref is a special property in react, its not passed as props. If you add ref property it will give you the reference of NumberFormat instance. In case you need input reference. You can use getInputRef prop instead.

  getInputRef={(el) => (this.inputElem = el)}
  format="#### #### #### ####"

Or using React.createRef()

const inputRef = React.createRef();
<NumberFormat getInputRef={inputRef} customInput={TextField} format="#### #### #### ####" />;

In case you have provided custom input you can pass there props to get the input reference (getInputRef will not work in that case). For ex in material-ui component.

  inputRef={(el) => (this.inputElem = el)}
  format="#### #### #### ####"

If you can't get in both way you can try ReactDOM.findDOMNode. You may need to traverse if input is not the top level element.

  ref={(inst) => (this.inputElem = ReactDOM.findDOMNode(inst))}
  format="#### #### #### ####"

Major updates


Breaking Changes

  • onValueChange no longer receives event object as second parameter, so if you accessing it, it will break.

Feature Addition

  • Support defaultValue prop.
  • Trigger onValueChange if the value is formatted due to prop change.
  • Allow password as type prop.
  • Support indian (lakh) and chinese (wan) style thousand grouping.
  • Always allow . to be typed as decimal separator, even when decimal separator is defined differently


  • onChange no longer gets values object. You need to use onValueChange instead. This is done because formatted value may change on onBlur event. calling onChange on onBlur doesn't feel right.
  • decimalPrecision is changed to decimalScale. Precision is the number of digits in a number. Scale is the number of digits to the right of the decimal point in a number.
  • decimalScale by default will not add 0s to match provided decimalScale value like decimalPrecision. You have to set fixedDecimalScale to true.
  • mask can be now array of string in which case mask at specific index will be mapped with the # of the pattern.
  • Value can be passed as string or number, but if it is passed as string it should be either formatted value or if it is a numeric string, you have to set isNumericString props to true.
  • Added support for numbers in prefix / suffix / pattern.
  • Fixed caret position and formatting issues.
  • Lot of bugs and stability fixes (See release notes)


  • Added isAllowed prop to validate custom input and reject input based on it.
  • onChange api been changed. Now it receives values object as second parameter.
  • decimalSeparator no longer support boolean values
  • thousandSeparator accepts only true as boolean (which defaults to ,) or thousandSeparator string
  • decimalPrecision only accepts number now
  • Value can be passed as string or number but if it is passed as string you should maintain the same decimal separator on the string what you provided as decimalSeparator prop.
  • Added back the type prop for the input type attribute (Only text or tel is supported)
  • Enforce cursor to be between prefix and suffix in focus, click or arrow navigation.
  • Lot of bugs and stability fixes (See release notes)
