To implement ButtonLink component into your project you'll need to add the import:

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

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

<ButtonLink>Hello World!</ButtonLink>

Functional specs

  • When the external is specified, noopener and noreferrer values will automatically added to attribute rel for security reason.

  • By passing the href prop into Button, it will render into a element. If you pass component prop it will override this logic.

  • If you want to render Icon only ButtonLink, you just need to let children prop empty and set up any icon you want to use.

  • If you want to use the component prop then YourComponent should accept at least className. Otherwise it won't be rendered with proper styling, e.g.:

    const YourComponent = props => <div {...props} />
Title ``` If you specify the children of **YourComponent** component, it will override the children prop of Button component, e.g.: ```jsx const YourComponent = props =>
Title ``` This example will render ButtonLink in div with children **YourComponent** and not **Title**.
