Media query container component for React with no extra DOM nodes

Media query container component for React with no extra DOM nodes

react-domless-media

The goal of react-domless-media is to provide DOM-transparent javascript media query container for react.js. It is not creating any DOM nodes on its own, thus it does not disturb already existing styling.

How does it work?

a) All components provided as match would be rendered if provided conditions would be met.

b) All components provided as mismatch would be rendered if provided conditions would not be met.

What can be passed as component props?

React-domless-media accepts statically or dynamically generated single or multiple react components or react fragments as props.

Installation

npm i react-domless-media

Usage

React-domless-media is exporting higher order component as default export so no build-tools are required. In order to work, it requires custom javascript object hereinafter referred to as media query object to be passed first to the instance of this higher order component. You can use single or multiple media query objects (each should be provided to individual RDM HoC instance) in case of complex projects involving usage of many react apps simltaneously.

Media query object

Media quey object must consists of string key - object pairs. Each sub-object must consist of at least one (min or max) property paired with value of desired resolution stored as number. Below are the examples of proper media query objects.

Min is the direct equivalent of css min-width and it works as >= and max is the direct equivalent of max-width and it works as <=

const mediaQueries = {
	LARGE: { min: 1024 },
	MEDIUM: { max: 1023 },
	SMALL: { max: 700 },
	MICRO: { max: 400 }
}
const mediaQueries = {
	MID: {
		min: 500,
		max: 900
	}
}

Instantiating react-domless-media

The best practice is to create new .js file with all needed react-domless-media instances and export them.

Single-instance

import domlessMedia from 'react-domless-media'

const mediaQueries = {
	LARGE: { min: 1024 },
	MEDIUM: { max: 1023 },
	SMALL: { max: 700 },
	MICRO: { max: 400 }
}

const DOMLessMedia = domlessMedia(mediaQueries)
export default DOMLessMedia

Multiple instances

import domlessMedia from 'react-domless-media'

const mediaQueries = {
	LARGE: { min: 1024 },
	MEDIUM: { max: 1023 },
	SMALL: { max: 700 },
	MICRO: { max: 400 }
}

const mediaQueries2 = {
	MID: {
		min: 500,
		max: 900
	}
}

export const DOMLessMedia = domlessMedia(mediaQueries)
export const DOMLessMedia2 = domlessMedia(mediaQueries2)

Using in application

In order to select adequate media query, you must provide it as media prop. It must be the exact name of the key of given media property from media queries object of that particular instance.
You must provide at least one react component as either match or mismatch prop, examples below. Remember to wrap multiple components in React.Fragment!

import DOMLessMedia from './DOMLessMedia.js'

<DOMLessMedia
	media={'LARGE'}
	match={<DesktopMenu menuItems={menuItems} />}
/>

In the example above, DesktopMenu component would be displayed only when window.innerWidth would be greater than or equal to a 1024 (pixels).

import DOMLessMedia from './DOMLessMedia.js'

<DOMLessMedia
	media={'MICRO'}
	match={<LogotypeSmall />}
	mismatch={<LogotypeBig />}
/>

In the example above, LogotypeSmall component would be displayed only when window.innerWidth would be less than or equal to a 400 (pixels), otherwise LogotypeBig would be displayed.

import DOMLessMedia2 from './DOMLessMedia2.js'

<DOMLessMedia
	media={'MID'}
	match={<LoginDesktop />}
/>

In the example above, LoginDesktop component would be displayed only when window.innerWidth would be greater than or equal to a 500 (pixels) and less than or equal to a 900 (pixels).

import DOMLessMedia from './DOMLessMedia.js'

<DOMLessMedia
	media={'MICRO'}
	match={
		<React.Fragment>
			<DesktopMenu menuItems={menuItems} />
			<SearchDesktop />
			<LoginDesktop />
		</React.Fragment>
		}
/>

In the example above, all children of DOMLessMedia component would be displayed only when window.innerWidth would be greater than or equal to a 1024 (pixels). Remember to wrap multiple components in React.Fragment!
