Links allow users to click their way from page to page. This component is styled to resemble a hyperlink and semantically renders an <a>


npx nextui-cli@latest add link
The above command is for individual installation only. You may skip this step if @nextui-org/react is already installed globally.








If you pass the isExternal prop, the link will have the target="_blank" and rel="noopener noreferrer" attributes.

Custom Anchor Icon

If you pass the isBlock prop, the link will be rendered as a block element with a hover effect.

Polymorphic Component

NextUI components expose a as prop that allows you to customize the React element type that is used to render the component.


The <Link> component works with frameworks and client side routers like Next.js and React Router. See the Routing guide to learn how to set this up.

import {Link} from "@nextui-org/react";
function App() {
return (
<Link href="/home">Home</Link>
<Link href="/about">About</Link>

Custom Implementation

In case you need to customize the link even further, you can use the useLink hook to create your own implementation.
