Recurrence rules generator form built with React

React RRule Generator

This is ReactJS project based on Create React Library and using Bootstrap styling. It's built with the help of a great rrule.js library.

It also uses:

  • lodash
  • moment
  • react-datetime

Installation

npm install --save react-rrule-generator

Usage

In your CSS index file don't forget to import styles:

@import '~bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css';       // this lib uses boostrap (v. 4.0.0-beta.2)
@import '~react-rrule-generator/build/styles.css'; // react-rrule-generator's custom CSS

Then you're good to go.
Just use it:

import RRuleGenerator from 'react-rrule-generator';

// render it as it is

const SimpleRender = () => (
  <RRuleGenerator onChange={(rrule) => console.log(`RRule changed, now it's ${rrule}`)} />
);


// or with your own forms configuration

import MyCustomCalendar from './MyCustomCalendar';

const CustomizedRender = () => (
  <RRuleGenerator
    onChange={(rrule) => console.log(`RRule changed, now it's ${rrule}`)}
    config={{
      repeat: ['Monthly', 'Weekly'],
      yearly: 'on the',
      monthly: 'on',
      end: ['Never', 'On date'],
      weekStartsOnSunday: true,
      hideError: true,
    }}
    customCalendar={MyCustomCalendar}
  />
);


// you can also use it as controlled input component and feed it with your own RRule!

class ControlledRender extends Component {
  state = {
    rrule: 'SOME REALLY COOL RRULE'
  };

  render() {
    return (
      <RRuleGenerator
        onChange={(rrule) => this.setState({ rrule })}
        value={this.state.rrule}
      />
    );
  }
}
