React Migrating from v3 to v4

Migrating from v3 to v4

Migration notes going from v3 to v4 of the React runtime

Starting in v4 of our React runtimes, Rive will support Rive Text at runtime, which includes the following packages:

  • React

    • @rive-app/react-canvas

    • @rive-app/react-webgl

Major Changes

No breaking API changes!

While a new major version has been released for the runtimes without breaking API changes, v4 was released due to a bundle size increase in the package from the core Web (JS) runtime dependency. See that migration guide here.

In the future, we may introduce a "lite" package without these larger dependencies if you don't need the text feature, but for now, it will remain the default on the main web runtime packages.
