    react-resizable-element ensures that your app has:

    • no unnecessary code imported:

      The package is tree shakeable which means if you are importing useResizable hook only, it'll make sure unused Resizable component won't be bundled in your application.

    • no unnecessary re-renders:

      Core of the package works without any re-renders even when you use useResizable. But if you have any use-case where you have to use isResizing flag then you will get 2 re-renders on demand, i.e. when user start and stop resizing.

    without any code changes from you.



    TSDX has been used to scaffold this package inside /src, and also sets up a Parcel-based playground for it inside /example.

    The recommended workflow is to run TSDX in one terminal:

    yarn start # or npm start

    This builds to /dist and runs the project in watch mode so any edits you save inside src causes a rebuild to /dist.

    Then run the example inside another:

    cd example
    yarn # or npm i to install dependencies
    yarn start # or npm start

    The default example imports and live reloads whatever is in /dist, so if you are seeing an out of date component, make sure TSDX is running in watch mode like we recommend above. No symlinking required, we use Parcel's aliasing.

    To do a one-off build, use npm run build or yarn build.


    Code quality is set up for you with prettier, husky, and lint-staged. Adjust the respective fields in package.json accordingly.


    Jest tests are set up to run with yarn test or npm test.

    Bundle analysis

    Calculates the real cost of your library using size-limit with npm run size and visulize it with npm run analyze.


    TSDX uses Rollup as a bundler and generates multiple rollup configs for various module formats and build settings.
