    custom-error-boundary

    Custom error boundary component for react.js applications.

    Installation

    $ npm install --save custom-error-boundary

    Usage

    Consider you have a component called App component which looks like this:

    import React from 'react';
    import './App.css';
     
    function App() {
        return <Divider dividend={6} divisor={0} />;
    }
     
    function Divider(props) {
        const result = props.dividend / props.divisor;
     
        if (isNaN(result)) {
            throw new Error('Result should be a number: ' + errorSuffixString);
        } else if (result === Infinity) {
            throw new Error('Result cannot be Infinity: ' + errorSuffixString);
        }
     
        return <p>The result after divion is: {result}</p>;
    }
     
    export default App;

    If the error is thrown due to faulty props, the page will break. Now we will try to implement the custom-error-boundary library. For that, we need to do the following steps:

    • Install the library using the installation command already provided.
    • Import the library like so: import CEB from 'custom-error-boundary'
    • Wrap the returned JSX in the <CEB></CEB> JSX, like: <CEB><Divider dividend={6} divisor={0} /></CEB>
    • Send appropriate props to the CEB JSX, currently the following list of props are supported.

    Now, the above App looks like this:

    import React from 'react';
     
    import { DividerProps } from './model';
     
    import './App.scss';
    import CEB from '@Components/CEB/CEB';
     
    const App = (): JSX.Element => {
        return (
            <CEB fallbackUI={CustomFallbackUI}>
                <Divider dividend={6} divisor={0} />
            </CEB>
        );
    };
     
    const Divider = (props: DividerProps): JSX.Element => {
        const result = props?.dividend / props?.divisor;
        const errorSuffixString =
            'Please check your inputs, both the props: dividend and divisor should be sent and make sure the divisor is not 0.';
     
        if (isNaN(result)) {
            throw new Error('Result should be a number: ' + errorSuffixString);
        } else if (result === Infinity) {
            throw new Error('Result cannot be Infinity: ' + errorSuffixString);
        }
     
        return <p>The result after divion is: {result}</p>;
    };
     
    const CustomFallbackUI = (): JSX.Element => {
        return <p>Custom fallback UI</p>;
    };
     
    export default App;

    Notice that a CustomFallbackUI component has been added. This is because we are passing the fallbackUI prop which requries a 'functional component' to be passed to it. Yes, this is a render prop. This component will be the fallback UI for the erroneous component that the CEB error boundary component is wrapping.

    Props Supported

    • fallbackUI: Takes a functional component and renders it when any error is encountered in the wrapped JSX.
    • theme: Takes a string. Not required when fallbackUI prop is provided as it has higher precedence if both the props are sent. List of available themes are provided in the Supported Themes section.

    Supported Themes

    • Basic

    Contributing

    Fork the project, make changes and send me a pull request.

    For adding a theme, follow these steps: <<<<<<< HEAD

    • Clone this repository.

    • Add your component under ./src/fallback/components. You can take the example of the Basic component in the same folder.

    • Import and export your component in the ./src/fallback/index.js file.

    • In order to test the compoent, follow these steps:

      • Run npm run build inside this (custom-error-boundary) project,
      • Create another project (example: Test) and implement a simple component like the App component shown above in the Usage section.
      • Copy the lib folder from the custom-error-boundary project and replace the lib folder inside the ./node_modules/custom-error-boundary folder.
      • Send necessary props in your CEB to test your results.
      • Created fallback compoent should be functional.
      • # The created components do not support props as of now.
    • Clone this repository.

    • Add your component under ./src/fallback/components. You can take the example of the Basic component in the same folder.
