react-flex

2.2.8 • Public • Published

react-flex

Flex component built for React

Install

$ npm i react-flex --save

Key features

  • support for React 15.2.0
  • no worries about browser prefixing for older browsers
  • props similar to css properties, so basically almost no learning curve

Usage

import { Flex, Item } from 'react-flex';
import 'react-flex/index.css';
 
<Flex row alignItems="center">
  <div>a first div</div>
  <Item flex={1}>flexes to 1</Item>
</Flex>

DONT FORGET to import react-flex/index.css as well.

Motivation

Ideally, we could write <div style={{flex: 1}} />, but the browser landscape has to catch up with prefixing, latest syntax, etc.

So instead, <Item flex={2} /> adds a className on the rendered item. Since you are also importing react-flex/index.css, you get a all the cross-browser syntax and prefixing that autoprefixer offers.

Props

There are two components in the react-flex module: Flex and Item. They both support flex as a prop.

Flex

  • inline: Boolean - for display: inline-flex.
  • row: Boolean - for flex-direction: row. Defaults to true
  • column: Boolean - for flex-direction: column
  • reverse: Boolean - for reverse direction (eg. flex-direction: column-reverse or row-reverse)
  • wrap: Boolean - for flex-wrap: wrap. Defaults to true.
  • flex: Number/String/Boolean - a number/string from 0 to 24 for the flex css property. false for none.
  • alignItems: String - a value for the align-items css property.
  • justifyContent: String - a value for the justify-content css property.
  • alignContent: String - a value for the align-content css property.
  • display: String - you can customize the display to be 'flex' or 'inline-flex'

The Flex component has the following default props (which Item does not):

  • row=true
  • wrap=true
  • alignItems='center'
  • display='flex'

Our experience shows those are the most common configs, so we made them the defaults.

Item

  • any of the above
  • flex: Number/String/Boolean - a number/string from 0 to 24 for the flex css property. false for none. Defaults to 1.
  • flexGrow: Number/Boolean/String - a number/string from 0 to 24 for flex-grow. Most of the times, using flex is just enough.
  • flexShrink: Number/String - a value for the flex-shrink css property. From 0 to 24.
  • flexBasis: String - a value for the flex-basis css property. Valid values are: 0 (and 'none', which is the same), 'auto', 'content', 'fit-content', 'min-content', 'max-content', 'fit'.

Examples

 
<Flex alignItems="start"> //or "flex-start"
  <Item flex={2}>
    content here
  </Item>
</Flex>
 
<Flex column wrap={false}>
  <Flex flex={false}>
    Flex also supports the `flex` prop
  </Flex>
  <Item flex={3} />
  <Item flex={12} />
</Flex>
