Customize the container of portable text with React

Last updated: Jan 25, 2021
Hi all! Does anyone know how to remove/customize the container of portable text with React? The react renderer currently wraps the content inside
, but I’d like to change that. I tried a few things including:

import BlockContent from '@sanity/block-content-to-react'

//                                            vvvvvvvvv
<BlockContent blocks={content} serializers={{ container: 'span' }} />
…but still no dice.

container: ({ children }) => children

, that didn’t work for me :&lt; Here’s my data + what my code looks like if you’re interested: https://codesandbox.io/s/pedantic-snyder-ftjlp?file=/src/App.js

ah, that’s the default block serialization, not the container you need to be looking at

Thanks Paul, I’ve just realized that as well! I guess now I’ll have to learn how to configure the default block

const serializers = {
  types: {
    block: ({children}) => <>{children}</>
