    htmlparser2-react

    Parses raw html use htmlparser2 to a React DOM structure.

    Apparently React checks instance of ReactDescriptor thus requiring the same React lib to parse/render a component. Ohwell, so just pass in your React to the function.

    So the process for now is

    npm install htmlparser2-react
    npm install react
    

    Quick example

    var reactParser = require('htmlparser2-react'),
        React = require('react');
     
     
    var html = '<div data-id="1" class="hey this is a class" style="width:100%;height: 100%;"><article id="this-article"><p>hey this is a paragraph</p><div><ul><li>1</li><li>2</li><li>3</li></ul></div></article></div>';
     
    var parsedComponent = reactParser(html, React);
     
     
    console.log(html == React.renderComponentToStaticMarkup(parsedComponent));
    //logs true

    This by no means takes into account everything, like CData, no special cases for script tags, other stuff that I have no idea about.

    It can be browserified for ES5 compliant browsers.

    There are likely more elegant solutions, like actually hooking into htmlparser2 DOMHandler thus not parsing to an object then converting to React but I can do that later.

    Should you use this? No.

    Why would you use this? Maybe you don't want dangerously set innerhtml?

    Have fun
