Compatibility with styled-components

See original GitHub issue

It would be nice to have direct compatibility with styled-component by accepting the standard className prop as alternative to the containerClassName prop. Otherwise styling with styled-components is only possible by wrapping the component in an extra wrapper component.

const StyledReactPaginate = styled(ReactPaginate)`
  a {
    cursor: pointer;
  .selected {
    background: lime;

I temporarily solved this problem by wrapping it with the styled component.

const StyledPaginateContainer = styled.div`
  .pagination {
    color: #0366d6;
  .break-me {
    cursor: default;
  .active {
    border-color: transparent;
    background-color: #0366d6;
    color: white;

     onPageChange={pagination => {

We use the same approach to work around that even before I opened this issue. But compatibility would be easily achieved with making (additional) use of the standard className prop.

Personally I don’t like having to use a special prop just to assign the class name for the outer most container of a component.
