RIFM - React Input Format & Mask

Is a tiny (≈ 800b) component (and hook) to transform any input component into formatted or masked input.

Demo

Highlights

  • Requires React 16.8+
  • Dependency free
  • Tiny (≈ 800b)
  • Supports any input.
  • Can mask input, format and more
  • Small readable source
  • flow + typescript definitions

Example

Rifm offers both a Render Prop and a Hook API:

Render Prop

import { Rifm } from 'rifm';
import { TextField } from '@material-ui/core';

const numberFormat = (str: string) => {
  const r = parseInt(str.replace(/[^\d]+/gi, ''), 10);
  return r ? r.toLocaleString('en') : '';
}

...

  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('')

  <Rifm
    value={value}
    onChange={setValue}
    format={numberFormat}
  >
    {({ value, onChange }) => (
      <TextField
        type="tel"
        value={value}
        onChange={onChange}
      />
    )}
  </Rifm>

...

Hook

import { useRifm } from 'rifm';
import { TextField } from '@material-ui/core';

const numberFormat = (str: string) => {
  const r = parseInt(str.replace(/[^\d]+/gi, ''), 10);
  return r ? r.toLocaleString('en') : '';
}

...

  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('')

  const rifm = useRifm({
    value,
    onChange: setValue,
    format: numberFormat
  })

  <TextField
    type="tel"
    value={rifm.value}
    onChange={rifm.onChange}
  />

...

Install

yarn add rifm

API

Terminology

Rifm is based on simple idea (*):

  • format operation applied to input value after edit doesn't change the order of some symbols before cursor

* This is not always true, but we solve some edge cases where it's not.

Imagine you have simple integer number formatter with ` as thousands separator and current input state is 123`4|67 ("|" shows current cursor position).

User press 5 then formatted input must be equal to 1`234`5|67.

The overall order of elements has changed (was 1->2->3->`->4->... became 1->`->2->3->4...) but the order of digits before cursor hasn't changed (was 1->2->3->4 and hasn't changed).

The same is true for float numbers formatting, dates and more. Symbols with preserved order are different and depends on format. We call this kind of symbols - "accepted" symbols.

Rifm solves only one task - find the right place for cursor after formatting.

Knowledge about what symbols are "accepted" and cursor position after any user action is enough to find the final cursor position.

Most operations which are not covered with above idea like case enforcements, masks guides, floating point ","=>"." replacement can be done using simple postprocessing step - replace. This operation works well if you need to change input value without loosing cursor position.

And finaly masks - masks are usually is format with replace editing mode + some small cursor visual hacks.

Input Props

These are accepted by the Rifm component as props and the useRifm hook as named arguments.

Prop type default Description
accept RegExp (optional) /\d/g Regular expression to detect "accepted" symbols
format string => string format function
value string input value
onChange string => void event fired on input change
children ({ value, onChange }) => Node value and onChange handler you need to pass to underlying input element
mask boolean (optional) use replace input mode if true, use cursor visual hacks if prop provided
replace string => string (optional) format postprocessor allows you to fully replace any/all symbol/s preserving cursor
append string => string (optional) format postprocessor called only if cursor is in the last position and new symbols added, used for specific use-case to add non accepted symbol when you type

Output Props

These will be passed into the children render prop for the Rifm component as named arguments, and returned from the useRifm hook as an object.

Prop type default Description
value string A formatted string value to pass as a prop to your input element
onChange SyntheticEvent => void The change handler to pass as a prop to your input element

See the Demo there are a lot of examples there.
