What is React Tidy?

React Tidy is a library of utility custom hooks. It's like lodash for React hooks. The goal is to provide a collection of tiny hooks that solve common problems or make writing React components easier.


To keep the library tidy, all included hooks are:

  • Atomic: only does one thing and does it well.
  • Independent: does not depend on any external library/configuration/context to work. Just import and call it.
  • Typed: can infer the type of its arguments and give the correct type in return.
  • Tested: has meaningfull tests that cover all uses cases.
  • Documented: has it's own README describing the arguments, return and giving a usage example.


Install using npm

npm install react-tidy

Or using yarn

yarn add react-tidy

List of Custom Hooks

  • useIsMounted Avoid using/updating state of unmounted components.
  • useInstance Create an instance of any class and make your component react to its changes.
  • usePrevious Track previous values of a variable.
  • useRefresh Rerender your React component whenever you want.
  • useStorage read and write items on browser storages the React way.


You can contribute to this library in many ways, including:

  • Reporting bugs: Simply open an issue and describe the bug. Please include a code snippet to reproduce the bug, it really helps to solve the problem quickly.

  • Suggesting new hooks: If you have a common use case that you think worth having its own hook, open an issue and we will discuss it. Do you already have an implementation for it? great, make a pull request and I will review it. Please make sure your code is consistent with the rest of the codebase and use Prettier and EditorConfig to format your files.

Those are just examples, any issue or pull request is welcome :)
