    〽️ MobX Router

    Example usage


    📖 How to decouple state and UI - a.k.a. you don’t need componentWillMount


    • Decoupled state from UI
    • Central route configuration
    • URL changes are triggering changes directly in the store, and vice-versa
    • No need to use component lifecycle methods like componentWillMount to fetch data or trigger a side effect in the store
    • Supported callbacks for the routes are: beforeEnter, onEnter, beforeExit, onExit. All of the callbacks receive route, params, store, and queryParams as parameters. If the beforeExit or beforeEnter methods return false the navigation action will be prevented.
    • The current URL params and query params are accessible directly in the store store.router.params / store.router.queryParams so basically they're available everywhere without any additional wrapping or HOC.
    • Navigating to another route happens by calling the goTo method on the router store, and the changes in the url are reflected automatically. So for example you can call router.goTo(, {id:5, page:3}) and after the change is made in the store, the URL change will follow. You never directly manipulate the URL or the history object.
    • <Link> component which also populates the href attribute and works with middle click or cmd/ctrl + click
    • Typescript support (Converted to typescript by thdk)
    • Hash-based routing (using paths like /#/foo/bar) support


    import React, {createContext} from 'react';
    import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
    import {MobxRouter, RouterStore, startRouter} from 'mobx-router';
    import routes from 'config/routes';
    //example mobx store
    export class AppStore {
        title = 'MobX Router Example App',
        user = null
    export class RootStore {
        public router: RouterStore<RootStore>;
        public app: AppStore;
        constructor() {
            this.router = new RouterStore<RootStore>(this);
   = new AppStore();
    const store = new RootStore();
    // Use React context to make your store available in your application
    const StoreContext = createContext({});
    const StoreProvider = StoreContext.Provider;
    startRouter(routes, store);
      <StoreProvider value={store}>
      	<MobxRouter store={store}/>
      </StoreProvider>, document.getElementById('root')

    Example config


    import React from 'react';
    import {Route} from 'mobx-router';
    import Home from 'components/Home';
    import Document from 'components/Document';
    import Gallery from 'components/Gallery';
    import Book from 'components/Book';
    import UserProfile from 'components/UserProfile';
    const routes = {
      home: new Route({
        path: '/',
        component: <Home/>
      userProfile: new Route({
        path: '/profile/:username/:tab',
        component: <UserProfile/>,
        onEnter: () => {
          console.log('entering user profile!');
        beforeExit: () => {
          console.log('exiting user profile!');
        onParamsChange: (route, params, store) => {
          console.log('params changed to', params);
      gallery: new Route({
        path: '/gallery',
        component: <Gallery/>,
        onEnter: (route, params, store, queryParams) => {;
        	console.log('current query params are -> ', queryParams);
        beforeExit: () => {
          const result = confirm('Are you sure you want to leave the gallery?');
          return result;
      document: new Route({
        path: '/document/:id',
        component: <Document/>,
        beforeEnter: (route, params, store) => {
          const userIsLoggedIn =;
          if (!userIsLoggedIn) {
            alert('Only logged in users can enter this route!');
            return false;
        onEnter: (route, params) => {
          console.log(`entering document with params`, params);
      book: new Route({
        path: '/book/:id/page/:page',
        component: <Book/>,
        onEnter: (route, params, store) => {
          console.log(`entering book with params`, params);
    export default routes;

    Custom director configuration

    mobx-router uses director behind the scenes. mobx-router exposes the director config object for you to pass your own configuration to director.

    To do this you must pass a DirectorConfig object as third argument of startRouter method.

    Hash based Routing | html5history

    If you disable html5history option, mobx will fallback to hash based routing.

        html5history: false,

    Not found (404) route | notfound

    You can pass a function to notfound which will be called when you don't have any matching route for the current path.

        notfound: () => store.router.goTo(YOUR_NOT_FOUND_ROUTE),


    npm i mobx-router
