Visx is a library that lets us add graphics to our React app easily.

In this article, we’ll look at how to use it to add a simple whiteboard into our React app.

Install Required Packages

We have to install a few modules.

To get started, we run:

npm i @visx/curve @visx/drag @visx/gradient @visx/responsive @visx/shape

to install the packages.

Create the Whiteboard

We can create the whiteboard by adding the items provided by the modules.

To do this, we write:

import React, { useCallback, useState } from "react";
import { LinePath } from "@visx/shape";
import { useDrag } from "@visx/drag";
import { curveBasis } from "@visx/curve";
import { LinearGradient } from "@visx/gradient";
function Example({ data = [], width, height }) {
  const [lines, setLines] = useState(data);
  const onDragStart = useCallback(
    (currDrag) => {
      setLines((currLines) => [
        [{ x: currDrag.x, y: currDrag.y }]
