react-lodash

Use any lodash function as a React component.

Example

Without

import react from 'react'

array && array.length ? (
  <ul>
    {array.map(i => (
      <li key={i}>{i}</li>
    ))}
  </ul>
) : (
  'Empty list'
)

With

The example below uses lodash isEmpty and map as components.

import react from 'react'
import { IsEmpty, Map } from "react-lodash"

<IsEmpty
  value={array}
  yes="Empty list"
  no={() => (
    <ul>
      <Map collection={array} iteratee={i => <li key={i}>{i}</li>} />
    </ul>
  )}
/>

Install

npm install react-lodash

API

react-lodash uses lodash documentation for prop names.

For example, let's say you want to use _.get. Based on lodash documentation, it takes an object and path arguments, so <Get /> will have the same props.

const object = {
  a: {
    b: { 1 }
  }
}

const path = 'a.b'

// lodash
_.get(object, path)

// react-lodash
<Get object={object} path={path} />

Also every react-lodash component accepts a children render prop:

<Get object={object} path={path}>
  {value => <UpperCase string={value} />}
</Get>

For lodash functions that return a boolean, react-lodash components accept yes and no render props:

<IsEmpty
  value={array}
  yes={() => <p>empty</p>}
  no={() => <p>not empty</p>}
/>
