Let's dive into the enchanting world of our React countdown timer and discover how it can transform your promotional campaigns into unforgettable experiences.

So first of all setup the project. We will create a react project using vite.

Now on app.jsx file I wrote this code -

import './App.css';
import Countdown from 'react-countdown';

function App() {
  return (
    <div>
      <Countdown date={Date.now() + 10000000} />
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And the output (screenshot) is -

Custom & Conditional Rendering
In case you want to change the output of the component or want to signal that the countdown's work is done, you can do this by either using the onComplete callback, a custom renderer, or by specifying a React child within <Countdown></Countdown>, which will only be shown once the countdown is complete.
Example -

import './App.css';
import Countdown from 'react-countdown';

const Completionist = () => <span>Time Finish!! You are good to go!</span>;

function App() {
  return (
    <div>
      <Countdown date={Date.now() + 5000}>
        <Completionist />
      </Countdown>
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And after the time is finish , it will hide the timer and show a message like this -
