Declarative way of routing for lit powered by pwa-helpers and redux.

A minimal router solution (~1.7 kb Gzipped) that consist in using lit-route elements and connecting them to the store.

The routing approach is based on the PWA Starter Kit.

Install

Install this library and its peer dependencies

npm i lit-redux-router lit pwa-helpers redux

Usage

Firstly ensure that the redux store has been created with the lazyReducerEnhancer, which allows for reducers to be installed lazily after initial store setup.

import { createStore, compose, combineReducers } from 'redux';
import { reducer } from './reducer';
import { lazyReducerEnhancer } from 'pwa-helpers';

export const store = createStore(reducer, compose(lazyReducerEnhancer(combineReducers)));

Then the router needs to connect to a redux store.

import { LitElement, html } from 'lit';
import { connectRouter } from 'lit-redux-router';
import store from './store.js';

connectRouter(store);

lit-route component can render the components when the path attribute matches. The corresponding active lit-route element will reflect the active attribute.

class MyApp extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`
      <div class="app-content">
        <lit-route path="/" active><h1>Home</h1></lit-route>
        <lit-route path="/about"><h1>About</h1></lit-route>
      </div>
    `;
  }
}
customElements.define('my-app', MyApp);

Ideally all content would be in a component and can be passed to lit-route through a component attribute.

class AppHome extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`<h1>Home</h1>`;
  }
}
customElements.define('app-home', AppHome);

class AppAbout extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`<h1>About</h1>`;
  }
}
customElements.define('app-about', AppAbout);

class MyApp extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`
      <div class="app-content">
        <lit-route path="/" component="app-home"></lit-route>
        <lit-route path="/about" component="app-about"></lit-route>
      </div>
    `;
  }
}
customElements.define('my-app', MyApp);

lit-route can map path variables and inject them in the provided component.

class AppProduct extends LitElement {
  static get properties() {
    return {
      id: String,
    };
  }

  render() {
    return html`<h1>Product with id: ${this.id}</h1>`;
  }
}
customElements.define('app-product', AppProduct);

class MyApp extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`
      <div class="app-content">
        <lit-route path="/products/:id" component="app-product"></lit-route>
      </div>
    `;
  }
}
customElements.define('my-app', MyApp);

When no path attribute is provided to lit-route, it will render when no route matches (404)

class MyApp extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`
      <div class="app-content">
        <lit-route path="/"><h1>Home</h1></lit-route>
        <lit-route><h1>404 Not found</h1></lit-route>
      </div>
    `;
  }
}
customElements.define('my-app', MyApp);

To trigger navigation without using a link element, the action navigate can be imported and triggered with the wanted path

import { navigate } from 'lit-redux-router';
import store from './store.js';

class MyApp extends LitElement {
  goTo(path) {
    store.dispatch(navigate(path));
  }

  render() {
    return html`
      <div class="app-content">
        <button @click="${() => this.goTo('/about')}">learn more about us</button>
      </div>
    `;
  }
}
customElements.define('my-app', MyApp);

To lazy load a component on route change and optionally show a loading component while waiting for the import to resolve

import { navigate } from 'lit-redux-router';
import store from './store.js';

class MyApp extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`
      <div class="app-content">
        <lit-route
          path="/docs"
          component="my-docs"
          .resolve="${() => import('./docs.js')}"
          loading="my-loading"
        ></lit-route>
      </div>
    `;
  }
}
customElements.define('my-app', MyApp);

class MyLoading extends LitElement {
  render() {
    return html`
      <style>
        h1 {
          margin-top: 0;
          margin-bottom: 16px;
        }
      </style>
      <h1>Loading...</h1>
    `;
  }
}

customElements.define('my-loading', MyLoading);

The window will scroll to top by default, to disable add the attribute scrollDisable

<lit-route path="/whatever" component="my-whatever" scrollDisable></lit-route>

To scroll to the route element on load, you can set the scrollIntoViewOptions object in the attribute .scrollOpt

<lit-route
  path="/whatever"
  component="my-whatever"
  .scrollOpt="${{behavior: 'smooth', block:'end', inline:'nearest'}}"
></lit-route>
