API

const [useEffectSubscribe, run] = useCustomEffect();
  • useEffectSubscribe - custom generated hook function based on similar API as React useEffect hook:

    useEffectSubscribe(callback, deps);
    • callback - function that runs every time when custom effect is triggered
    • deps - array of values referenced inside the effect callback function
  • run - function that triggers the custom effect; every argument passed to run function will be passed to useEffectSubscribe callback

Usage

Basic example

import React, {useEffect} from 'react';
import {useCustomEffect} from 'use-custom-effect';
 
const EffectProducer = ({run, effectTriggerProp}) => {
  useEffect(() => {
    run(effectTriggerProp);
  }, [effectTriggerProp]);
 
  return null;
}
 
const EffectConumer = ({useEffectSubscribe}) => {
  useEffectSubscribe((value) => {
    // this code fragment executes every time when EffectProducer useEffect triggers;
    // value - effectTriggerProp passed to run function in EffectProducer
  });
 
  return null;
}
 
const App = () => {
  const [useEffectSubscribe, run] = useCustomEffect();
 
  return (
    <div>
      <EffectProducer run={run} effectTriggerProp='Initial value' />
      <EffectConsumer useEffectSubscribe={useEffectSubscribe} />
    </div>
  );
};

Fetch example

import React, {useEffect} from 'react';
import {useCustomEffect} from 'use-custom-effect';
 
const Fetcher = ({runFetchEffect}) => {
  const handleFetch = () => {
    runFetchEffect('START');
 
    fetch("https://api.com/data")
      .then(res => res.json())
      .then(
        (result) => {
          runFetchEffect('SUCCESS', result);
        },
        (error) => {
          runFetchEffect('ERROR', error);
        }
      );
  };
 
  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={handleFetch}>Fetch</button>
    </div>
  );
};
 
const Consumer = ({useFetchEffect}) => {
  const [fetchCounter, setFetchCounter] = useState(0);
  const [{data, loading, error}, setState] = useState({
    data: null,
    error: null,
    loading: false,
  });
 
  useFetchEffect((status, response) => {
    if (status === 'START') {
      setFetchCounter(fetchCount + 1);
 
      setState({
        data: null,
        error: null,
        loading: true,
      });
 
      return;
    }
 
    if (status === 'SUCCESS') {
      setState({
        data: response,
        error: null,
        loading: false,
      });
 
      return;
    }
 
    if (status === 'ERROR') {
      setState({
        data: null,
        error: response,
        loading: false,
      });
 
      return;
    }
  }, [fetchCounter, setState, setFetchCounter]);
 
  return (
    <div>
      {loading && <p>Loading...</p>}
      {data && <p>{JSON.stringify(data)}</p>}
      {error && <p>Error: {error}</p>}
      <p>Fetch counter: {fetchCounter}</p>
    </div>
  );
};
 
const App = () => {
  const [useFetchEffect, run] = useCustomEffect();
 
  return (
    <div>
      <Fetcher runFetchEffect={run} />
      <Consumer useFetchEffect={useFetchEffect} />
    </div>
  );
};

Typescript

Typescript implementation just includes specifying custom effect callback type:

const [useEffectSubscribe, run] = useCustomEffect<(id: number, status: string) => void>();

The benefits of using custom effects

  • Reducing props propagation.

    You can resolve custom effect logic in the upper scope, and just delegate custom effect subscribe hook to the effect consumers. (There is no need to propagate props which take part into effect).

  • Controlling effect execution moment.

    Via useCustomHook API, the run function is at your disposal that executes all effect callbacks synchronously.

  • Using custom effects as a composition unit.

    You can use created custom effect hook to build more complex effects / UI behaviors.
