    #RxReact

    ReactJS bindings for RxJS

    #Installation

    Install this module with npm:

    npm install rx-react
    

    #Usage:

    RxReact provides a set of utilities to work with RxJS and React :

    • The StateStreamMixin
    • The LifecycleMixin
    • The PropsMixin
    • The RxReact.Component base class
    • The FuncSubject helper

    ##StateStreamMixin

    The StateStreamMixin allows to bind a component state to an RxJS Observable stream. The way to achieve the binding is to provide a getStateStream method on your component that returns an RxJS Observable, the StateStream mixin will automatically merge the state of your component with the values published by the returned observable. The subscription will be automaticly cleaned on component unmount.

    Example:

    var StateStreamMixin = require('rx-react').StateStreamMixin;
    var React = require('react');
    var Rx = require('rx');
    
    
    var Timer = React.createClass({
      mixins: [StateStreamMixin],
      getStateStream: function () {
        return Rx.Observable.interval(1000).map(function (interval) {
          return {
            secondsElapsed: interval
          };
        });
      },
      render: function () {
        var secondsElapsed = this.state ? this.state.secondsElapsed : 0;
        return (
          <div>Seconds Elapsed: {secondsElapsed}</div>
        );
      }
    });
    
    React.render(<Timer />, document.getElementById('timer-holder'));

    ##LifecycleMixin

    The LifecycleMixin allows you to consume React components lifecycle events as RxJS Observable. The LifecycleMixin will inject a property lifecycle to the component, that property contains an observable for each lifecycle events.

    Example :

    var LifecycleMixin = require('rx-react').LifecycleMixin;
    var React = require('react');
    var Rx = require('rx');
    
    
    var Component = React.createClass({
      mixins: [LifecycleMixin],
      componentWillMount: function () {
        this.lifecycle.componentDidMount.subscribe(function () {
          console.log('componentDidMount');
        });
        
        this.lifecycle.componentWillReceiveProps.subscribe(function (props) {
          console.log('componentWillReceiveProps : ' JSON.stringify(props));
        });
        
        this.lifecycle.componentWillUpdate.subscribe(function ({nextProps, nextState}) {
          console.log('componentWillUpdate : ' JSON.stringify({nextProps, nextState}));
        });
        
        this.lifecycle.componentDidUpdate.subscribe(function ({prevProps, prevState}) {
          console.log('componentDidUpdate : ' JSON.stringify({prevProps, prevState}));
        });
        this.lifecycle.componentWillUnmount.subscribe(function () {
          console.log('componentWillUnmount');
        });
      },
      render: function() {
        //...
      }
    });

    ##PropsMixin

    The PropsMixin allows to obtain a stream of props as RxJS Observable for your component. Example :

    var PropsMixin = require('rx-react').PropsMixin;
    var React = require('react');
    
    
    var Component = React.createClass({
      mixins: [PropsMixin],
      componentWillMount: function () {
        this.propsStream.subscribe(function (props) {
          console.log(props.message);
        }
      },
      render: function() {
        //...
      }
    });
    
    var comp = React.render(<Component message='Hello World!' />, domNode); // log 'Hello World!'
    comp.setProps({message: 'Hello John'}); // log 'Hello John'

    This is particulary useful in combination with the StateStreamMixin when your component states depends on Props.

    ##Component

    The RxReact.Component is a base class combining the behavior of all the mixin described above. It extends React.Component. Example:

    var RxReact = require('rx-react');
    var Rx = require('rx');
    
    class MyComponent extends RxReact.Component {
      getStateStream() {
        return Rx.Observable.interval(1000).map(function (interval) {
          return {
            secondsElapsed: interval
          };
        });
      }
      
      render() {
        var secondsElapsed = this.state? this.state.secondsElapsed : 0;
        return (
          <div>Seconds Elapsed: {secondsElapsed}</div>
        );
      }
    }

    Note that the getStateStream function is mandatory, and that when you extend lifecycle methods, You must call the super method.

    ##FuncSubject

    The FuncSubject helper allows to create an RxJS Observable that can be injected as callback for React event handlers, refs, etc... To create an handler use the create function of FuncSubject

    var myHandler = FuncSubject.create()

    Example:

    var FuncSubject = require('rx-react').FuncSubject;
    var React = require('react');
    var Rx = require('rx');
    
    
    var Button = React.createClass({
      componentWillMount: function () {
        this.buttonClicked = FuncSubject.create();
        
        this.buttonClicked.subscribe(function (event) {
          alert('button clicked');
        })
      },
      render: function() {
        return <button onClick={this.buttonClicked} />
      }
    });
