🔑 Easily map window listeners to keyboard events in React

Prerequisites

useKey is a custom React hook, so you're project must be running React and ReactDOM versions 16.8+.

Installation

To install, use your package manager of choice. Here is the command for npm:

npm i usekey-event-manager

Usage

Import useKey from usekey-event-manager and pass it a keyboard event map:

import React from 'react'
import useKey from 'usekey-event-manager'
 
function Dialog(props) {
    useKey({ Escape: props.closeAndReturnFocus })
    return(
        <div role="alertdialog">
            {/* ... */}
        </div>
    )
}
 
export default Dialog

API

Version 1+ of usekey-event-manager comprises a single export: useKey.

useKey()

useKey is a custom React hook that assigns a window event listener on keydown. When an event is fired, the listener compares it to a set of selected keys, then calls the action and passes the event object if there is a match.

useKey(Object<String, Function>)

If there is a single key that you want to listen for, you can pass a map like so:

useKey({ Escape: close })
