Remix-Image

👋 Intro

A React component for responsive images in Remix.

This library turns:

<Image
  src="https://i.imgur.com/5cQnAQC.png"
  responsive={[{
    size: {
      width: 100,
      height: 100,
    },
    maxWidth: 200,
  }]}
/>

Into:

<img
  class="Image-module_root__56rgX"
  src="/api/image?src=https%253A%252F%252Fi.imgur.com%252F5cQnAQC.png&amp;width=100&amp;height=100%2520100w"
  srcset="/api/image?src=https%253A%252F%252Fi.imgur.com%252F5cQnAQC.png&amp;width=100&amp;height=100%2520100w"
  sizes="(max-width: 200px) 100px"
>

Where the responsive sizes provided through the props are turned into image URLs served by the local server that are cached for fast and performant loading.

🚀 How to use

Install

To install this library and its peer deps, use on of the following commands:

npm install -S remix-image hybrid-disk-cache sharp
yarn add remix-image hybrid-disk-cache sharp

Loader

Create a new resource route that imports the imageLoader function and exports as loader.
By default, the image component uses the route "/api/image", but any route can be used.

import { imageLoader } from "remix-image";

export const loader = imageLoader({
  selfUrl: "http://localhost:3000",
  whitelistedDomains: ["i.imgur.com"],
});

Options

Name Type Required Default Description
selfUrl string X The URL of the local server.
whitelistedDomains string[] [] Valid domains responsive images can be served from. selfUrl is automatically added at runtime and is not required.
cache { path: string, ttl: number, tbd: number } | null { path: “tmp/img”, ttl: 24 * 60 * 60, tbd: 365 * 24 * 60 * 60 } The configuration for the local image cache. Setting this to null will disable the cache.

Component

Import the Image component and specify the url to the resource route used by the imageLoader function.
The loaderUrl prop is optional if the resource route has been created at the path "/api/image".

import { Image } from "remix-image";

<Image
  loaderUrl="/api/image"
  src="..."
  width="..."
  height="..."
  alt="..."
  responsive={[
    {
      size: {
        width: 100,
        height: 100,
      },
      maxWidth: 200,
    },
  ]}
/>

PropTypes

Name Type Required Default Description
loaderUrl string “/api/image” The path of the image loader resource route.
responsive { size: { width: number; height: number; }; maxWidth?: number; }[] [] An array of responsive sizes. The resource route is not called if this prop is not provided.

Hook

Optionally, this library also exports the hook used to generate responsive props for images.
In most use cases you can simply use the Image component, but you might need the hook for custom components.

import { useResponsiveImage } from "remix-image";

const Image: React.FC<ImageProps> = ({
  className,
  loaderUrl = "/api/image",
  responsive = [],
  ...imgProps
}) => {
  const responsiveProps = useResponsiveImage(imgProps, loaderUrl, responsive);

  return (
    <img
      className={clsx(classes.root, className)}
      {...imgProps}
      {...responsiveProps}
    />
  );
};

Parameters

Name Type Required Default Description
imgProps ComponentPropsWithoutRef<“img”> X The props to be passed to the base img element.
loaderUrl string X [] The path of the image loader resource route.
responsive { size: { width: number; height: number; }; maxWidth?: number; }[] [] An array of responsive sizes.
