Prevent usage of setState in componentDidMount (no-did-mount-set-state)

Updating the state after a component mount will trigger a second render() call and can lead to property/layout thrashing.

Rule Details

This rule is aimed to forbid the use of this.setState in componentDidMount outside of functions, such as callbacks.

The following patterns are considered warnings:

var Hello = React.createClass({
  componentDidMount: function() {
    this.setState({
      name: this.props.name.toUpperCase()
    });
  },
  render: function() {
    return <div>Hello {this.state.name}</div>;
  }
});

The following patterns are not considered warnings:

var Hello = React.createClass({
  componentDidMount: function() {
    this.onMount(function callback(newName) {
      this.setState({
        name: newName
      });
    });
  },
  render: function() {
    return <div>Hello {this.state.name}</div>;
  }
});
var Hello = React.createClass({
  componentDidMount: function() {
    this.props.onMount();
  },
  render: function() {
    return <div>Hello {this.props.name}</div>;
  }
});

Rule Options

"no-did-mount-set-state": [<enabled>, <mode>]

disallow-in-func mode

By default this rule forbids any call to this.setState in componentDidMount outside of functions. The disallow-in-func mode makes this rule more strict by disallowing calls to this.setState even within functions.

The following patterns are considered warnings:

var Hello = React.createClass({
  componentDidMount: function() {
    this.setState({
      name: this.props.name.toUpperCase()
    });
  },
  render: function() {
    return <div>Hello {this.state.name}</div>;
  }
});
var Hello = React.createClass({
  componentDidMount: function() {
    this.onMount(function callback(newName) {
      this.setState({
        name: newName
      });
    });
  },
  render: function() {
    return <div>Hello {this.state.name}</div>;
  }
});
