React accordion component with flexbox header

React accordion component with flexbox header

react-accordion-with-header

React accordion component with customizable flexbox header.

Install via NPM:

npm install react-accordion-with-header

Import the modules:


import {
    AccordionWithHeader,
    AccordionNode,
    AccordionHeader,
    AccordionPanel
} from 'react-accordion-with-header';

Items can be passed in to <AccordionHeader /> and <AccordionPanel />:

  • as a component passed into the template prop
  • as children

NOTE: We cannot pass in a stateless component as a template at this time because of the way we use refs to calculate height... and according to react: "Stateless function components cannot be given refs"

The elements passed in to <AccordionHeader /> can be horizontally justified and vertically aligned via their respective props
:tada: :boom: :beers:

  • horizontalAlignment
  • verticalAlignment

Pass in a component as children:

…
  render() {
    return (
      <AccordionWithHeader>
        {[1, 2, 3, 4].map((item, i) => {
          return (
            <AccordionNode key={i}>
              <AccordionHeader horizontalAlignment="centerSpaceAround" verticalAlignment="center">
                <HeaderTpl />
              </AccordionHeader>
              <AccordionPanel>
                <BodyTpl />
              </AccordionPanel>
            </AccordionNode>
          );
        })}
      </AccordionWithHeader>
    );
  }
…

Pass in a component as a template via template prop:

 
  render() {
    return (
      <AccordionWithHeader>
        {[1, 2, 3, 4].map((item, i) => {
          return (
            <AccordionNode key={i}>
              <AccordionHeader template={<HeaderTpl />} horizontalAlignment="centerSpaceBetween" />
              <AccordionPanel template={<BodyTpl />} />
            </AccordionNode>
          );
        })}
      </AccordionWithHeader>
    );
  }

...or pass in plain HTML as children

…
  render() {
    return (
      <AccordionWithHeader>
        {[1, 2, 3, 4].map((item, i) => {
          return (
            <AccordionNode key={i}>
              <AccordionHeader>
                <div>
                  <h2>Some title!</h2>
                </div>
              </AccordionHeader>
              <AccordionPanel>
                <section>
                  <header>Some body information etc</header>
                  <article>Interesting things...</article>
                </section>
              </AccordionPanel>
            </AccordionNode>
          );
        })}
      </AccordionWithHeader>
    );
  }
…

actionCallback

…
  actionCallback(panels) {
    // fires any time headers are clicked and panels change state
    // receives array of panels: [{ panel: 3, open: true }, { panel: 6, open: true }]
    console.log('panels', panels);
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <AccordionWithHeader actionCallback={this.actionCallback.bind(this)}>
        // ... stuff
      </AccordionWithHeader>
    );
  }
…
