Minified size Downloads Dependencies

Dependencies


Features:

  • Templating with JSX
  • Pass objects to custom element attributes
  • Observable props and state

Installation:

yarn add @vanille/core

No dependencies

All features are in-house implementations to maximize native functionality, with a few exceptions (check out below!)


Extending web components for native performance

import { BaseView } from '@vanille/core';

export class App extends BaseView {}

Fast templating web components with in-house JSX

export class App extends BaseView {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <span>JSX!</span>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

Simple routing

<v-route path="/">
  Home
</v-route>
<v-route path="/dashboard">
  Dashboard
</v-route>
<v-route path="/users/:id">
  User with id
</v-route>

Observables

const object = observable({
  user: {
    email: '',
    contact: {
      firstName: ''
    }
  }
});
object.user.$on('email', (newValue, oldValue, user) => {
  console.log(newValue, oldValue, user);
});
object.user.contact.$on('firstName', (newValue, oldValue, user) => {
  console.log(newValue, oldValue, user);
});

user.email = 'vanille@js.com';
// log: 'vanille@js.com' '' { email: '', contact: { firstName: '' } }

user.contact.firstName = 'vanille';
// log: 'vanille' '' { contact: { firstName: '' } }

Pass objects in web component attributes

const user = { name: 'vanille' };

<v-app user="user"></v-app>;

export class App extends BaseView {
  render() {
    return (
      <p>{this.props.user.name}</p>
    )
  }
}

Web component attributes become observable props

const user: User = { name: 'vanille' };

<v-app user="user"></v-app>;

export class App extends BaseView {
  setBindings() {
    this.props.$on('user', (newValue: User) => {
      // user changed
    });
    this.props.user.$on('name', (newValue: string) => {
      // name changed
    });
  }
}

Private state as observables

export class App extends BaseView {
  data() {
    return {
      name: 'vanille'
    };
  }

  setBindings() {
    this.state.$on('name', (newValue) => {
      // name changed
    });
  }
}

Query the DOM with refs to update elements

export class App extends BaseView {
  setBindings() {
    this.props.$on('name', (newValue: string) => {
      this.refs.name.textContent = newValue;
    });
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <span ref="name">JSX!</span>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

Declarative testing with JSX

import { mount } from './test-utils';
// load the component
import './test-utils/Test';

test('can render from jsx', () => {
  const $shadow = mount(<v-test />) <---- JSX!

  const $el = $shadow.querySelector('[data-id="test"');

  expect($el).toBeTruthy();
});
