batched-hook

Batched set state and dispatch for react hooks

Problem

Sometimes state updates caused by multiple calls to useState setter, are not batched. more detail

Example:

function useCount(init = 0) {
  const [count, setCounter] = useState(init);
  function inc() {
    setCounter(c => c + 1);
  }
  return [count, inc];
}
 
export function App() {
  const [a, incA] = useCount(0);
  const [b, incB] = useCount(0);
  const renderCount = useRef(0);
 
  renderCount.current = renderCount.current + 1;
  console.log(`render${renderCount.current}`, a, b);
 
  useEffect(() => {
    console.log('effect ', a, b);
  }, [a, b]);
 
  const incAll = () => {
    setTimeout(() => {
      incA();
      incB();
    }, 0);
  };
 
  return (
    <div className="App">
      render count:
      <div data-testid="count">{renderCount.current}</div>
      state:
      <div data-testid="state">
        {a}-{b}
      </div>
      <button data-testid="button" onClick={incAll}>
        increment all
      </button>
    </div>
  );
}

output:

render1 0 0
effect  0 0
// click
render2 1 0  <-- bad render
effect  1 0  <-- bad effect
render3 1 1
effect  1 1

Solution

with batched-hook you can batch calls to dispatch of useReducer and setter of useState hooks.

render1 0 0
effect  0 0
// click
render2 1 1
effect  1 1

Install

yarn add batched-hook

Usage

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { install } from 'batched-hook';
 
// `uninstall` function will restore default React behavior.
const uninstall = install(React, ReactDOM);

How it works

install function patches React and replace useState and useReducer with new functions. These functions have the same functionality but when you call dispatch, the called function and its arguments will be saved into a queue. after all sync statements, all function calls inside the queue we will be called inside ReactDOM.unstable_batchedUpdates.
