Best way to use BEM with React

Features

BEM methodology for React

cn decorator provides simplest ability to generate BEM methodology classes inside React Component.

Basic example

import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return <div className={ cn() } />;
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name"></div>

Use for elements

import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return (
            <div className={ cn() }>
                <span className={ cn('some-element') } />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name">
//     <span class="block-name__some-element"></span>
// </div>

Add mods

import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return <div className={ cn({ mod1: true, mod2: 'value' }) } />;
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name block-name_mod1 block-name_mod2_value"></div>

Mods for elements

import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return (
            <div className={ cn() }>
                <span className={ cn('some-element', { mod1: true }) } />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name">
//     <span class="block-name__some-element block-name__some-element_mod1"></span>
// </div>

Themes management

cn decorator provides system for themes managements. You can setup your themes using cn.create factory. cn decorator uses first theme as default.

Basic example

// my-component.js
import cnDecorator from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
const cn = cnDecorator.create(['on-color', 'on-white']);
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return <div className={ cn() } />;
    }
}
 
// app.js
import React from 'react';
import MyComponent from './my-component';
 
class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return <MyComponent />;
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name block-name_theme_on-color"></div>

Switch theme with public prop

// my-component.js
import cnDecorator from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
const cn = cnDecorator.create(['on-color', 'on-white']);
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return <div className={ cn() } />;
    }
}
 
// app.js
import React from 'react';
import MyComponent from './my-component';
 
class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return <MyComponent theme="on-white" />;
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name block-name_theme_on-white"></div>

className proxy

cn decorator adds ability to React Component to proxy className prop.

Example

// my-component.js
import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return <div className={ cn() } />;
    }
}
 
// app.js
import React from 'react';
import MyComponent from './my-component';
 
class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return <MyComponent className="custom-class" />;
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name custom-class"></div>

BEM overrides

Using cn decorator you can easy seperate your logic from styles. Just use extends pattern to override base BEM block name. Use this feature to override component's styles.

// my-component.js
import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import './my-component.css';
 
@cn('block-name')
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn) {
        return (
            <div className={ cn() }>
                <span className={ cn('some-element') } />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
// my-extended-component.js
import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import MyComponent from './my-component';
import './my-extended-component.css';
 
@cn('extended-block')
class MyExtendedComponent extends MyComponent {}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="extended-block">
//     <span class="extended-block__some-element"></span>
// </div>

DI Components

cn decorator includes dependency injection ability. It can help you to override default component's composition.

// my-component.js
import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import React from 'react';
import MyDepComponent from './my-dep-component';
 
@cn('block-name', MyDepComponent)
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
    render(cn, MyDepComponent) {
        return (
            <div className={ cn() }>
                <MyDepComponent />
            </div>
        );
    }
}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name">
//     <div class="my-dep"></div>
// </div>
 
// my-overrided-component.js
import cn from 'cn-decorator';
import MyComponent from './my-component';
import MyOverDepComponent from './my-over-dep-component';
 
@cn('block-name', MyOverDepComponent)
class MyOverridedComponent extends MyComponent {}
 
// Render result:
// <div class="block-name">
//     <div class="my-over-dep"></div>
// </div>
