Looking to get react version from one of your apps? You have a few different options!

Get React Version in code

If you're already in the JavaScript, you can print the current React version by doing:

import React, { version } from "react"


This also works with the require syntax:

const React = require("react")
const version = React.version


You can also check your package-lock.json or yarn.lock file!

cat package-lock.json | grep \"react\" -A 1

Or, if you are using Yarn:

cat yarn.lock | grep \"react\" -A 1
