cem-plugin-reactify

@custom-elements-manifest/analyzer plugin to automatically create React wrappers for your custom elements based on your custom elements manifest. You can see this plugin in action here, or view the live demo on Stackblitz.

Usage

Install:

npm i -D cem-plugin-reactify

Import

custom-elements-manifest.config.js:

import reactify from 'cem-plugin-reactify';

export default {
  plugins: [
    reactify()
  ]
}

Configuration

custom-elements-manifest.config.js:

import reactify from 'cem-plugin-reactify';

export default {
  plugins: [
    reactify({
      /** Directory to write the React wrappers to, defaults to `legacy` */
      outdir: 'react',
      
      /** Provide an attribute mapping to avoid using JS/React reserved keywords */
      attributeMapping: {
        'for': '_for'
      },

      /** Array of classNames to exclude */
      exclude: ['MyElement']
    });
  ]
}

Details

You can read more about the reactification-process in this here blogpost.

Slots

Any children passed to the React component will get passed through to the custom element using {children}.

Example:

export function GenericSwitch({children}) {
  return <generic-switch>{children}</generic-switch>
}

Usage:

<GenericSwitch>
  Toggle me!

  <div slot="namedslot">
    This gets projected to `namedslot`
  </div>
</GenericSwitch>

Properties

cem-plugin-reactify makes a decision on whether to use an attribute or property based on whether or not an attribute has a corresponding fieldName. If an attribute does have a fieldName, the attribute will get ignored, but the property will be used instead.

Private and protected fields will be ignored.

Example:

function GenericSwitch({checked}) {
  const ref = useRef(null);

  useEffect(() => {
    if(ref.current.checked !== undefined) {
      ref.current.checked = checked;
    }
  }, [checked]);

  return <generic-switch ref={ref}></generic-switch>
}

Usage:

<GenericSwitch checked={true}/>
<GenericList complexProperty={[{name: 'peter'}]}/>

Attributes

Since values in React get passed as JavaScript variables, it could be the case that an attribute name clashes with a React or JS reserved keyword. For example: a custom element could have a for attribute, which is a reserved keyword in JavaScript. In the plugin's configuration, you can specify an attributeMapping to prevent this clash from happening, and rename the value that gets passed to the attribute. The attribute name itself will remain untouched.

Example:

export default {
  plugins: [
    reactify({
      attributeMapping: {
        for: '_for',
      },
    }),
  ],
};

Will result in:

function GenericSkiplink({_for}) {
  return <generic-skiplink for={_for}></generic-skiplink>
}

Additionally, boolean attributes will receive a special handling.

Example:

function GenericSwitch({checked}) {
  const ref = useRef(null);

  useEffect(() => {
    if (disabled !== undefined) {
      if (disabled) {
        ref.current.setAttribute("disabled", "");
      } else {
        ref.current.removeAttribute("disabled");
      }
    }
  }, [disabled]);

  return <generic-switch ref={ref}></generic-switch>
}

Usage:

<GenericSwitch label={'hello world'}/>  // regular attribute
<GenericSwitch disabled={true}/>        // boolean attribute

Events

Event names are capitalized, camelized and prefixed with 'on', so: 'selected-changed' becomes onSelectedChanged.

Example:

function GenericSwitch({onCheckedChanged}) {
  const ref = useRef(null);

  useEffect(() => {
    if(onCheckedChanged !== undefined) {
      ref.current.addEventListener("checked-changed", onCheckedChanged);
    }
  }, []);

  return <generic-switch ref={ref}></generic-switch>
}

Usage:

<GenericSwitch onCheckedChanged={e => console.log(e)}/>
