Integration with ReactJS

I went through the integration example of NodeJS which was done using EJS. I was looking for a ReactJS example.

I have installed document server on IP - AA.BB.YY.XX and it is working fine.
We have a ReactJS frontend. I added the script tag in our index.html
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://AA.BB.YY.XX/web-apps/apps/api/do ... "></script>

When the user clicks on the word document in my app I call a function named openEditor and pass the url

openEditor = (url) => {
new DocsAPI.DocEditor("placeholder", {
"document": {
"fileType": "docx",
"key": "Khirz6zTPdfd7",
"title": "Example Document Title.docx",
"url": url
"documentType": "text"

However this doesn't work because I get the compilation error 'DocsAPI' is not defined'
Is there a way to make this work? How do I define DocsAPI in my ReactComponent?
Is this the right way to integrate with React?

'DocsAPI' is not defined means that there is no access to API
what do you get if you go to http://AA.BB.YY.XX/web-apps/apps/api/documents/api.js?

You have to use window explicity to access the DocsAPI object.
Code snippet:

Code: Select all

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import './App.css';

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
        <div id="placeholder"></div>

  componentDidMount() {
    let config = {
      "document": {
        "fileType": "docx",
        "key": "...",
        "title": "...",
        "url": "..."
      "documentType": "text",
      "editorConfig": {
        "callbackUrl": "..."
    new window.DocsAPI.DocEditor("placeholder", config);

export default App;
Best regards,

Hi team,
I have installed DocumentServer and its dependencies by following below link steps ... -apps.aspx

I believe it will be installed in the default port 8080

When i use below in my React js application, it not working properly(says DocsAPI undefined). Can you please help me to sort this out?

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://localhost:8080/web-apps/apps/api ... "></script>
this.myWebViewer = new window.DocsAPI.DocEditor("placeholder", {"document": {
"fileType": "docx",
"key": "Khirz6zTPdfd7",
"title": "Example Document Title.docx",
"url": ""
"documentType": "text",
"editorConfig": {
"callbackUrl": ""
