react-dom-reflection

Experimental utils, to get more from React-Dom

Warning

This library uses details of the internal React-Dom realization. Be careful.

Use cases

Connect React and Dom trees

React tree is where your Application lives, but DOM tree is where it is actually exists. React.Portals are breaking connections between React and DOM, and while events would be automatically managed by React - everything else would not.

Get debug information

Sometimes you need it - get some react information out of dom tree. Get React instance from a Dom Node.

Find your place

It always was a right decision to keep Components in isolation, and not let them assess their parents. But it still could be useful in some cases.

API

The goal is to keep API not simple, but less fragile, to prevent potential breakages in the future.

instanceContainsNode(componentInstance, DomNode): boolean

Returns if DomNode is contained inside Component.

nodeContainsNode(hostNode, targetNode): boolean

Returns if targetNode is contained inside hostNode. This is the same as Dom API node.contains(anotherNode)

unsafe_portalsWithin(componentInstance): DomNodes[],

Returns all portals within

unsafe_childNodesWithin(componentInstance): DomNodes[],

Returns all direct children of component

unsafe_getFiberFromNode(DomNode): Fiber

Returns fiber(wrapped) for a node

Example

 
class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  componentDidMount() {
    document.body.addEventListener(
        'click',
        event => {
          if (instanceContainsNode(this, event.target)) {
            console.log('this event is somewhere inside me')
          } 
        }
    )    
  }
 
  render(){
    return (
      <React.Fragment>
        <div> local div </div>
        <Portal> portaled content </div> 
      </React.Fragment>
    )
  }
}
