idyll-regl-component

Component base class to make it easy to integrate regl into Idyll projects

Installation

npm install --save idyll-regl-component

Usage

const React = require('react');
const ReglComponent = require('idyll-regl-component');
const regl = require('regl');
 
class CustomReglComponent extends ReglComponent {
 
  initialize(r, node) {
    // set the width, height of node
    //...
    // then
    const regl = r(node);
    // your regl code here
  }
}
 
module.exports = CustomReglComponent;

In .idl file:

[CustomReglComponent someProp:someData /]

In order to use this component, you just need to define initialize.

iniatialize(multiRegl, node)

The initialize function is called only once when your component first mounts. Use this function to set up regl's draw loop.

update(props)

This function is called any time the props object changes. Use this function e.g. to update your component when some property changes. Note, for most cases you shouldn't need to use the update function.

Options

Anything you pass to your component will be available on the props object. E.g.

In .idl file:

[CustomReglComponent someProperty:"abc" someOtherProperty:"xyz"  /]
class CustomReglComponent extends ReglComponent {
  initialize(r, node) {
    // this.props:
    // {
    //  someProperty: "abc",
    //  someOtherProperty: "xyz"
    // }
 
    //...
  }
  update(props){/**/}
}
 
module.exports = CustomReglComponent;

className

A css class name can be provided.

Sets the className:

[CustomReglComponent className:"regl-viz" /]
