Example. Components with overrides

To summarize the current section, let's create a MyButton component consisting of a link, an icon, and text. Let's add one src parameter to the Props panel and add overrides to the nested components:

import React from "react";
import { useOverrides } from "@quarkly/components";
import { Link, Icon, Text } from "@quarkly/widgets";
const overrides = {
"Button Icon": {
kind: "Icon",
props: {
category: "md",
icon: "MdInfoOutline",
"Button Text": {
kind: "Text",
props: {
children: "Get Info",
const MyButton = ({ src, ...props }) => {
const { override, rest } = useOverrides(props, overrides);
return (
<Link src={src} {}>
<Icon {...override("Button Icon")} />
<Text {...override("Button Text")} />
const propInfo = {
src: {
title: "SRC",
control: "input",
weight: 1,
const defaultProps = {
src: "default_src_property",
export default Object.assign(MyButton, {
title: "My Button Component",

In this example, we created an overrides object where we specified the list of all the overrides in the component. Then, inside the component, we called useOverrides. We transferred the rest object to the end of the parent component and called the override function in each child component with the correct override name. When exporting the component, don't forget to transfer the previously created overrides object.
