react-formal uses a yup schema to update and validate form values. It treats the form like an input (representing an object) with a value and onChange. The form can be controlled or uncontrolled as well, just like a normal React input.

var yup = require('yup')
  , Form = require('react-formal')

var modelSchema = yup.object({
        name: yup.object({
            first: yup.string().required('Name is required'),
            last: yup.string().required('Name is required')    
        }),
        dateOfBirth: yup.date()
            .max(new Date(), 'You can be born in the future!')
    })

// ...in a component
render() {
    return (
        <Form
            schema={modelSchema}
            value={this.state.model}
            onChange={model => this.setState({ model })}
        >
            <fieldset>
                <legend>Personal Details</legend>

                <Form.Field name='name.first'/>
                <Form.Message for='name.first'/>

                <Form.Field name='name.last'/>
                <Form.Message for='name.last'/>

                <Form.Field name='dateOfBirth'/>
                <Form.Message for='dateOfBirth'/>
            </fieldset>
            <Form.Button type='submit'>Submit</Form.Button>
        </Form>
    )
}
