useMagicClass

use-magic-class tests

A hook and class decorators for composing custom react / preact hooks declaratively as class instances, rather than using a plain composed function. The goal is to provide an alternative and ergonomic classical mechanism for constructing, composing, and extending custom hooks and their returned api's.

Example

import React from 'react'
import { isState, isEffect } from 'use-magic-class'
import { useMagicClass } from 'use-magic-class/react'

class MagicClass {
  @isState
  public statefulValue = 1

  @isEffect<MagicClass>(({ statefulValue }) => ( 
    [statefulValue]
  ))
  public logValue() {
    console.log(this.statefulValue)
  }
}

const Component = () => {
  const magic = useMagicClass(MagicClass)

  return (
    <button onClick={() => {
      magic.statefulValue++
    }}>
      {magic.statefulValue}
    </button>
  )

API Reference

hook

useMagicClass

Creates an instance of a class decorated with the decorators in the following section. The decorators map to further hook calls internally, which are combined with the decorated properties / methods to create a composed hook api. See Example or the examples directory for usage.

Decorators

isState

Decorates a stateful property, that when changed triggers a state update. Just like with setState, only properties that are not strictly equal will trigger an update. Internally maps to a useState call.

import { isState } from 'use-magic-class'

class State {
  @isState
  public number = 1

  @isState
  private string = 'string'

  @isState
  protected boolean = false
}

isEffect

Decorates a method to indicate it should be called as an effect. Any dependencies are passed to the decorator either as an array, or as a function that returns an array, and takes the class instance as its argument. Internally maps to a useEffect call.

import { isEffect } from 'use-magic-class'

class Effect {
  public number = 1

  @isEffect()
  public runEveryTime() {
    return () => { /* cleanup logic */ }
  }

  @isEffect([])
  private runOnce() {}

  @isEffect<Effect>((effect) => [effect.number])
  protected runWhenChanged() {}
}

isLayoutEffect

Decorates a method to indicate it should be called as an layout effect. Any dependencies are passed to the decorator either as an array, or as a function that returns an array, and takes the class instance as its argument. Internally maps to a useLayoutEffect call.

import { isLayoutEffect } from 'use-magic-class'

class LayoutEffect {
  public number = 1

  @isLayoutEffect()
  public runEveryTime() {
    return () => { /* cleanup logic */ }
  }

  @isLayoutEffect([])
  private runOnce() {}

  @isLayoutEffect<LayoutEffect>((effect) => [effect.number])
  protected runWhenChanged() {}
}

isContext

Decorates a property to indicate that it should be populated and updated from context. Optionally takes a transform function which recieves the current context value as its argument. Maps internally to a useContext call.

import createContext from 'react'
import { isContext } from 'use-magic-class'

const ObjectContext = createContext<{
  number: number
}>({number: 1 })

class Context {
  @isContext(ObjectContext)
  public object: { number: number } | null = null

  @isContext(ObjectContext, ({ object }) => object.number)
  private number: number | null = null
}

isMemo

Decorates a readonly computed property to indicate that its return value should be memoized. Any dependencies are passed to the decorator either as an array, or as a function that returns an array, and takes the class instance as its argument. Maps internally to a useMemo call.

import { isState, isMemo } from 'use-magic-class'

class Memo {
  @isState
  private number: number = 1

  @isMemo<Memo>(({ number }) => [number])
  public get object: { number: number } () {
    return {
      number: this.number
    }
  }
}

isMagic

Decorates a nested magic class property. The property should be initialized as an instance of the magic class. Maps internally to a useMagicClass call.

import { isState, isMagic } from 'use-magic-class'

class State {
  @isState
  private number: number = 1
}

class Composition {
  @isMagic
  public state = new State()
}
