scala-js-react

Build Status Gitter

Scala-js-react provides nice statically typed interface to Facebook's React.

Quickstart

For detailed sbt configuration please refer to scala.js documentation.

build.sbt

enablePlugins(ScalaJSPlugin)

scalaVersion := "2.11.5"

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "com.xored.scalajs" %%% "scalajs-react" % "0.3.3",
  compilerPlugin("org.scalamacros" % "paradise" % "2.0.1" cross CrossVersion.full)
)

project/plugins.sbt

addSbtPlugin("org.scala-js" % "sbt-scalajs" % "0.6.0")

project/build.properties

sbt.version=0.13.7

Features

scala-js-react aims to support all Facebook React features.

scalax annotation

While Facebook React uses JSX, scala-js-react offers scalax support. Basically scalax allows to use Scala XML literals to build React DOM.

React DOM allows to put objects into attribute values, while scala.xml.UnprefixedAttribute constructor takes Seq[Node] or String. So we have to transform methods before it typechecks. That is why scalax scalax uses macro annotations and requires macro paradise compiler plugin.

object HelloMessage extends TypedReactSpec {

  case class State()
  case class Props(name: String)

  def getInitialState(self: This) = State()

  @scalax
  def render(self: This) = {
    <div>Hello {self.props.name}</div>
  }
}

React.renderComponent(
  HelloMessage(HelloMessage.Props(name = "John")),
  mountNode
)

Internal State

A component can maintain internal state.

object Timer extends TypedReactSpec with TypedEventListeners {

  case class Props()
  case class State(secondsElapsed: Int, interval: Option[Int])

  def getInitialState(self: This) = State(secondsElapsed = 0, interval = None)

  implicit class Closure(self: This) {
    import self._

    val tick = () => {
      setState(state.copy(secondsElapsed = state.secondsElapsed + 1))
    }
  }

  override def componentDidMount(self: This) = {
    val interval = window.setInterval(self.tick, 1000)

    self.setState(self.state.copy(interval = Some(interval)))
  }

  override def componentWillUnmount(self: This) = {
    self.state.interval.foreach(window.clearInterval)
  }

  @scalax
  def render(self: This) = {
    <div>Seconds Elapsed: {self.state.secondsElapsed}</div>
  }
}

Typed listeners and closures

object Say extends TypedReactSpec with TypedEventListeners {

  case class Props()
  case class State(text: String)

  implicit class Closure(self: This) {
    import self._

    val onChange = input.onChange(e => {
      setState(state.copy(text = e.target.value))
    })

    val onClick = button.onClick(e => {
      alert(state.text)
    })
  }

  def getInitialState(self: This) = State(text = "")

  @scalax
  def render(self: This) = {
    <div>
      <input type="text" value={self.state.text} onChange={self.onChange}></input>
      <button type="text" onClick={self.onClick}>Say</button>
    </div>
  }
}
