Angular to React: The easiest way to embed Angular components in a React app

angular2react Build Status NPM Apache2

One line of code to turn any Angular 1 Component into a React Component (opposite of react2angular)

Installation

# Using Yarn:
yarn add angular2react angular angular-resource react react-dom @types/angular @types/react @types/react-dom

# Or, using NPM:
npm install angular2react angular angular-resource react react-dom @types/angular @types/react @types/react-dom --save

Usage

1. Save a reference to the $injector

let $injector
angular
  .module('myModule')
  .run(['$injector', function(_$injector) { $injector = _$injector }])

2. Create an Angular component

const MyComponent = {
  bindings: {
    fooBar: '<',
    baz: '<'
  },
  template: `
    <p>FooBar: {this.$ctrl.fooBar}</p>
    <p>Baz: {this.$ctrl.baz}</p>
  `
}

3. Expose it to Angular

angular
  .module('myModule', [])
  .component('myComponent', MyComponent)

4. Convert it to a React Component

import { angular2react } from 'angular2react'

const MyComponent = angular2react('myComponent', MyComponent, $injector)

5. Use it in your React code

<MyComponent fooBar={3} baz='baz' />

Why step 1?

We need a reference to the $injector created by the Angular module that registered the Angular component you're exposing. That way we can manually compile your component.

If you use ngimport, you can skip step 1 and omit the last argument in step 4:

import { angular2react } from 'angular2react'

const MyComponent = angular2react('myComponent', MyComponent)

Caveats

  • Only one way bindings (<) are supported, because this is the only type of binding that React supports
  • Be sure to bootstrap your Angular app before rendering its React counterpart
