ReactJS Component that knows when it's hovered over

react-hoverbox

HoverBox is a React component that allows your own component's render method to behave differently if certain parts of it are being hovered on. This can be useful when you need your component to respond to hover in ways that can't be done completely by CSS.

HoverBox accepts one prop: a render function, similar to the one you'd give any React component. However, this function has a parameter which is set to true when the component is currently being hovered on.

Example

ES6

var HoverBox = require("react-hoverbox");

<HoverBox render = {hover => (
    <div>
        <SomeComponent showEffect = {hover} />
        <div>Look at the shiny hover effect!</div>
    </div>
)}/>

ES5

var HoverBox = require("react-hoverbox");

<HoverBox render = {function(hover) {
    return (
        <div>
            <SomeComponent showEffect = {hover} />
            <div>Look at the shiny hover effect!</div>
        </div>
    );
}}/>
