Ever wondered what would happen if preact and choo got a baby?

Welp, wonder no longer - here's the answer. Full on choo architecture plus a couple preact goodies like h() and components. No JSX, only template strings via hyperx. But you can use JSX if you want to. We even get almost all of the React ecosystem through preact-compat.


And then render them in your views using `h()`:

var html = require('choop/html')
var h = require('choop/h')

var ClickMe = require('./ClickMe')

function view (state, emit) {
  return html`

Optionally pass data a.k.a. props:

h(MyComponent, { someData: 'beep' })

You can use props or an additional constructor function to pass emit into your components.


choo version 6.11.0 introduced a state.cache helper for managing nanocomponent instances. This is not included in choop since component instance management is taken care of by preact.

Should I use this?

Sometimes you gotta use react, and the best thing to do in that case might be to jump on the preact train, grab a bag of architecture and go to town. This might not be for me, but perhaps it's useful for you. Here you go! ?

What's the real difference here?

nanomorph is replaced by preact

How do I run react widgets in choop?

Like this:

npm i -S preact preact-compat
npm i -S preact-compat/react preact-compat/react-dom

What's the size?

Something like 8.7 kB

What about choo?

Yeah, what about me? (drumroll)


$ npm install choop
