How to Render an Animated GIF in a React Component?

Estimated read time 2 min read

In React, you can render an animated GIF using an img element with the src attribute set to the URL of the GIF. Here’s an example of how to render an animated GIF in a React component:

import React from "react";

function MyComponent() {
  return (
    <div>
      <img src="https://example.com/animated.gif" alt="Animated GIF" />
    </div>
  );
}

In this example, we’re defining a MyComponent function that renders an img element with the src attribute set to the URL of an animated GIF. We’re also setting the alt attribute to a descriptive text that will be displayed if the image fails to load or if the user is using a screen reader.

When the component is rendered, the animated GIF will be displayed in the browser, and it will start playing automatically. You can customize the appearance of the GIF by setting CSS styles or class names on the img element, just like any other HTML element.

Note that animated GIFs can be large in file size and may take a while to load, especially on slow internet connections. You may want to optimize the size and quality of your GIFs or consider using a different format, such as video, if you need to display a large number of animations in your React app.
