ts-jsx-loader

Webpack loader for transforming JSX based on special syntax. Meant to be used with a TypeScript loader to allow using JSX with TypeScript.

Installation

npm install ts-jsx-loader

Usage

The loader chain should go from ts-jsx-loader into a TypeScript loader. Your configuration will look something like this:

module.exports = {
    entry: './app.ts',
    output: {
        filename: 'bundle.js'
    },
    resolve: {
        extensions: ['', '.webpack.js', '.web.js', '.js', '.ts']
    },
    module: {
        loaders: [
            { test: /\.ts$/, loader: 'ts-loader!ts-jsx-loader' }
        ]
    }
}

ts-jsx-loader defines a fake API on React called React.jsx(). You should reference the included react-jsx.d.ts or react-addons-jsx.d.ts definition file for IDE support. This API accepts either a string or nothing. You can then create JSX as a template string or within multiline comments.

///<reference path="path/to/react-jsx.d.ts"/>
 
import React = require('react');
 
var message = 'Hello world'
 
React.render(React.jsx(/*
    <div>
        <span>{message}</span>
    </div>
*/), document.body)
 
// or if you're using TypeScript 1.4 or above with template strings, with or without embedded expressions
 
React.render(React.jsx(`
    <div>
        <span>${message}</span>
    </div>
`), document.body)
 
React.render(React.jsx(`
    <div>
        <span>{message}</span>
    </div>
`), document.body)
 
// or if you simply want to use JSX without making it valid TypeScript
 
React.render(
    /*jsx*/
    <div>
        <span>{message}</span>
    </div>
    /*jsx*/
, document.body)

The loader will find occurrences of React.jsx() or /*jsx*/ and transform them into React.createElement() calls prior to being passed to the TypeScript loader.

Options

Specify options to the loader via query string:

    ...
    module: {
        loaders: [
            { test: /\.ts$/, loader: 'ts-loader!ts-jsx-loader?target=es3&identifier=react.jsx' }
        ]
    }
    ...

harmony (boolean) (default=true)

Allows the use of ES6 features within JSX.

  • es3
  • es5 (default)

identifier (string) (default='React.jsx')

Change the identifier to something other than React.jsx. For example, you could import React with a lower-case r like so:

import react = require('react')
 
react.jsx(`<div />`)

target (string)

Specify the output target. See this for more information.

  • es3
  • es5 (default)
