Advantages

🐜 Lightweight

Only 4.28kb gzipped.

🐙 Highly scalable and extendable

You can literally customize any piece of the component using listRenderer, optionRenderer, selectedBlockRenderer, iconRenderer and others.

🦄 Immutable? Virtualized? No problem!

We have various HOC's that may help you to integrate with your existing application.

💃 CSS modules

All of our classes are extendable with CSS modules. Take a look at list of them.

🕵️‍♂️ Debuggable

Yes, yes! You can inspect dropdown list with help of DevTools. You know what I'm talking about, right?

Still not sure? We have a lot of other cool features. Take a look at our examples.

Installation

npm i react-select-me --save

Usage

import Select from 'react-select-me';

// IMPORTANT If you want to provide default styles you have to import them
import 'react-select-me/lib/ReactSelectMe.css';

const options = [{ value: 1, label: 'Label 1' }, { value: 2, label: 'Label 2' }];

export default class App extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = { value: null };
    this.onChange = this.onChange.bind(this);
  }
  onChange(value) {
    this.setState({ value });
  }
  render() {
    return <Select options={options} value={this.state.value} onChange={this.onChange} />;
  }
}

HOC

We've extracted some key features into separate HOCs to keep the main library as small as possible

makeVirtualized

Uses virtualized list to render dropdown options. It allows you to render huge lists without affecting the page performance.

import Select from 'react-select-me';
import makeVirtualized from 'react-select-me/lib/hoc/makeVirtualized';

const VirtualizedSelect = makeVirtualized(Select);

// now you can use the VirtualizedSelect component as usual
// ...
<VirtualizedSelect options={options} value={this.state.value} onChange={this.onChange} />;
// ...

makeImmutable

Integrates with immutable-js which allows you to pass immutable structures as component's props.

import Select from 'react-select-me';
import makeImmutable from 'react-select-me/lib/hoc/makeImmutable';

const ImmutableSelect = makeImmutable(Select);

// now you can pass immutable data as options
// ...
<ImmutableSelect options={options} value={this.state.value} onChange={this.onChange} />;
// ...

import Select from 'react-select-me';
import s from 'react-select-me/src/ReactSelectMe.css';

<Select s={s} {...otherProps} />
  • If you want to customize any element with help of your own classes
const classNames = {
  // usual class names
  dd__wrapper: 'my-super-class',
  // or even with css modules
  dd__selectedOption: s.mySuperSelectedOption,
};
<Select s={classNames} {...otherProps} />;
