    React Editable Build Status Coverage Status dependencies Status

    A component that wraps around a form component to provide an editing state that it maintains. Works with promises returned by the Editable methods.

    React Editable can accept anything as its value, making it a generic wrapper for any controlled component that needs a temporary editing state.

    Why Use It?

    React Editable factors out the concerns of temporary state and whether to maintain it in a global store like Redux, or in your own component. It passes through its current state so you can render your component differently depending on whether it's inactive, editing, or waiting on a promise.

    Demo & Examples

    Live demo: https://dcwither.github.io/react-editable-decorator/

    npm install
    npm start

    Then open localhost:6006 in a browser


    import PropTypes from 'prop-types';
    import React from 'react';
    import {
    } from "react-editable-decorator";
    class Input extends React.Component {
      static propTypes = {
        onCommit: PropTypes.func.isRequired
        onChange: PropTypes.func.isRequired,
        status: EditableStatusType.isRequired,
        value: PropTypes.string.isRequired
      handleCommit = () => {
      handleChange = evt => {
      render() {
        const { status, value } = this.props;
        return (
              disabled={status === EditableStatus.COMMITTING}
            <button onClick={this.handleCommit}>Submit</button>
    // Either wrap in the Editable Component with render props
    <Editable onCommit={onCommit}>
      {({onChange, onCommit}) => {
        <Input onChange={onChange} onCommit={onCommit} />
    // Or compose with the HOC
    const EditableInput = withEditable(Input);

    State Transitions

    State Transitions


    Property Type Required Description
    onCancel func(value) No Callback for when editing is canceled
    onCommit func(message, value) No Callback for commit changes
    value child.propTypes.value No Unedited value to be passed through to child while presenting

    Child Properties

    Property Type Description
    onStart func Callback that triggers start of editing
    onCancel func Callback that triggers cancel editing and clears edited value
    onChange func(nextValue) Callback that triggers change in edited value
    onCommit func(message) Callback that triggers a commit
    status 'PRESENTING', 'EDITING', or 'COMMITTING' Current status of ReactEditable
    value any The value passed into Editable if PRESENTING or the edited value if EDITING or COMMITING

    Commit Event Handler (onCommit)

    This will be called when the matching callback passed through to the render prop child is called. If it returns a promise, ReactEditable will remain in a COMITTING state until the promise resolves. If ReactEditable unmounts before the promise resolves, it will cancel its promise, and avoid a setState.
