NoThis.Component for React

A this-free way of creating a React component.

Create React component without the need for this. The context is passed in as the first argument to all methods (unless excluded).

Save your future self some time and never debug this again!

NULL is considered to the a Billion dollar mistake. How much will this cost us?

Installation

Same way you install everything with JavaScript...

npm install -P nothis-react

NoThis.Component

NoThis.Component works in a familiar way to React.Component because it inherits from React.Component.

The context you would previously access via this is available as the first function argument.

import React from 'react'
import NoThis from 'nothis-react'
 
class Counter extends NoThis.Component {
  state = { count: 0 }
 
  increment(ctx) {
    ctx.setState(state => ({ count: state.count + 1 }))
  }
 
  render(ctx) {
    return (
      <div>
        <button onClick={ctx.increment}>{ctx.state.count}</button>
      </div>
    )
  }
}

Argument Destructuring

If you love destructuring as much as I do, then code like this now becomes possible!

import React from 'react'
import NoThis from 'nothis-react'
 
class Counter extends NoThis.Component {
  state = { count: 0 }
 
  increment({ setState }) {
    setState(({ count }) => ({ count: count + 1 }))
  }
 
  render({ increment, state: { count } }) {
    return (
      <div>
        <button onClick={increment}>{count}</button>
      </div>
    )
  }
}

Excluding Functions

A function can be excluded from nothis by writing it as a class property.

class Counter extends NoThis.Component {
  increment = () => {
    this.setState(({ count }) => ({ count: count + 1 }))
  }
}
