Extract is considered deprectaed in favor of implementing shared functionality as Web Components. See https://github.com/sebgroup/green/tree/main/libs/core

Extract is where all the business logic of Green components lives so that it can be shared between Angular and React implementations. It is called Extract since the normal way of creating a component is within Angular and React and then extracting the common logic.

Patterns for common components

The look

Step one is always creating CSS and HTML for your component in Chlorophyll. We use Storybook to visualise the component in various states so that we can track progress and continuously check that it adheres to design guidelines. Read more in https://github.com/sebgroup/green/libs/chlorophyll

Interaction and data

A common component consists of two parts: An interaction object and the data. Let's look at these through an example.

type Operator = '+' | '-' | '*' | '/' | '='
type Digit = number | '.'
type Press = Operator | Digit

export interface Calculator {
  pressDigit: (digit: Digit) => void
  pressOperator: (operator: Operator) => void
  clear: () => void

export interface CalculatorData {
  currentValue: number
  numpad: Digit[][]
  operators: string[]
  presses: Press[]

These are the components we will be interacting with. The Calculator instance will be persistent and allows us to interact while the CalculatorData is changed on every interaction and allows us to render our component.

Now, lets create out Calculator.

export interface CalculatorOptions {
  containerEl: HTMLElement

export const createCalculator = (listener: (data: CalculatorData) => void, options: CalculatorOptions): Calculator => {
  // Create initial data
  let data: CalculatorData = {
    currentValue: 0,
    numpad: [
      [7, 8, 9],
      [4, 5, 6],
      [1, 2, 3],
      [0, '.'],
    operators: ['/', '*', '-', '+', '='],

  // Create interaction object
  const calculator: Calculator = {
    clear: () => {
      data = clear(data) // pure function
    pressDigit: (digit) => {
      data = pressDigit(data, digit) // reducer
    pressOperator: (operator) => {
      data = pressOperator(data, operator) // reducer

  // Add keyboard interactions to element
  // options.containerEl

  // Call listener with initial data

All interactions with the calculator is done through pure functions with no side effects using a reducer pattern (basically a data structure goes in and a new, changed data structure comes out). These are easily testable. The resulting updated data model is communicated to the framewoek of choice which can then re-render making it easily bindable.

And then...

This is work in progress. Please reah out to us for clarifications or suggested improvements!
