react-jile

Create scoped React component styles with jile automagically

Table of contents

Installation

$ npm i react-jile --save

Usage

import React from 'react';
import jile from 'react-jile';
 
// create your jile styles
const styles = {
  '.foo': {
    color: 'red'
  }
};
 
// and pass them to the decorator for the class
@jile(styles)
class Foo extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const {
      selectors 
    } = this.props;
    
    return (
      <div className={selectors.foo}>
        I have red-colored font!
      </div>
    );
  }
}
 
const Bar = ({selectors}) => {
  return (
    <div className={selectors.foo}>
      I have red-colored font!
    </div>
  );
};
 
// works with functional components too
const JiledBar = jile(styles)(Bar);

How it works

Most of the magic is handled internally by jile, which will automatically parse, prefix, and inject the styles object you pass into the document head, allowing the full power of CSS written in pure JS. react-jile merely provides a convenient decorator to use on React components, and also manages the style tag for you (no duplicate injections, auto addition / removal from DOM when all instances of the component are mounted / unmounted, etc.). In a majority of cases all you will need are the selectors, which are the scoped selectors created by the jile process, and are available on props. Also available on props is the full jile instance, which will likely not be used but there in case you want to get crazy with your application of jile.

Advanced usage

Options

react-jile accepts all arguments that the standard jile method does, so if you pass it additional options it will respect those as well:

import React from 'react';
import jile from 'react-jile';
 
const globalStyles = {
  'html, body': {
    margin: 0,
    padding: 0
  }
};
const options = {
  hashSelectors: false
};
 
@jile(globalStyles, options)
class App extends React.Component {
  ...
}

The available options are explained in detail on the jile github README.

Using props to calculate styles

In addition to the standard jile usage of passing a plain object of styles, you can instead pass a function as the styles parameter. This function will accept the current props, and should return a plain object of styles:

import React from 'react';
import jile from 'react-jile';
 
const getStyles = (props) => {
  const pseudoElement = !props.isLoading ? {} : {
    '&:after': {
      content: 'Loading...',
      display: 'block'
    }
  };
  
  return {
    '.foo': pseudoElement
  };
};
 
@jile(getStyles)
class Page extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const {
      children,
      selectors 
    } = this.props;
  
    return (
      <div className={selectors.foo}>
        {children}
      </div>
    );
  };
}

The caveat here is that by using this function, the styles are instance-specific, meaning every instance of the component will create a unique style tag that will be independently mounted / updated / unmounted in the DOM.

Development

Pretty standard stuff, pull down the repo and npm i. There are some built-in scripts:

  • build = runs webpack to build dist/jile.js
  • build:minified = runs webpack to build dist/jile.min.js
  • clean => runs rimraf to remove lib and dist folders
  • dev => runs example app on localhost:3000 (it's a playground, have fun)
  • lint => runs eslint on all files in src
  • prepublish:compile = runs clean, lint, test, transpile, build, and build:minified scripts
  • start = runs dev script
  • test = runs AVA test scripts
  • test:watch runs test, but with persistent watcher
  • transpile = transpiles files in src to lib

Happy jiling!
