    ReHaCe - Github repository components as magnolia light module.

    Build status

    React - Habitat - Cerebral === ReHaCe

    • Create Magnolia pages enriched with data from your favorite Github repositories.
    • Use React components from server side rendered templates.
    • Connect your components to a single state.
    • Let your authors choose which React components to show on the page.
    • Turn any React component into a Magnolia component.

    Whats inside?

    If youre creating a React App, the default way is to create a root component and render the whole app in the page. This is great for single page apps, as you have the full controll in your components.

    As an author you use a CMS to have a nice ui/ux to manage your sites and content. In this case it is the Magnolia CMS with his nice page editing and light modules.

    Our goal was it to get this two worlds together. So you add a Magnolia component to a page and add options through the dialog. In the template the react component get this options and render. All react components on the page share the same state and can respond on changes.

    In this demo we connect to the Github API to fetch some repository data. The basic flow is:

    • Create a project page in Magnolia with owner and repository name.
    • The page template instantiates the React component:
    <div data-component="GithubProjectRegistration"
    • The component triggers the signal projectRegistered.
    • The signal fetches the repository data from github and stores the result in the state.
    const projectRegistered = [
      createProjectEntry, {
        created: [
          fetchRepoData, {
            success: [
            error: [logError('Could not fecth repo data.')]
        exists: [noop],
        error: [logError('Could not register project')]
    • The state now contains the repository data.
    • Any component on the page can connect to the state and render the data.
