To implement TextLink component into your project you’ll need to add the import:

import TextLink from "@kiwicom/orbit-components/lib/TextLink";

After adding import into your project you can use it simply like:

<TextLink>Hello World!</TextLink>

Functional specs

  • When the external is specified, noopener value will be automatically added to attribute rel for security reason. Read more about it here.

  • The default size of the TextLink is inherited from parent element, e.g. TextLink is wrapped in Text component. Use size prop only when you need to set it explicitly.
