useList(store, renderItem)

Hook function for efficient rendering of list store. Every item will be memoized and updated only when their data changes.

Arguments

  1. store (Store): Store should be array
  2. renderItem (Function): Render function which will be called for every item in list

Returns

(React.Node)

Example

import React from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
import {createStore} from 'effector'
import {useList} from 'effector-react'
const users = createStore([
{id: 1, name: 'Yung'},
{id: 2, name: 'Lean'},
{id: 3, name: 'Kyoto'},
{id: 4, name: 'Sesh'},
])
const Users = () => {
// we don't need keys here any more
const list = useList(users, ({name}, index) => (
<li>
[{index}] {name}
</li>
))
return <ul>{list}</ul>
}
ReactDOM.render(<Users />, document.getElementById('root'))

Try it

import React from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
import {createStore, createEvent} from 'effector'
import {useList} from 'effector-react'
const addTodo = createEvent()
const toggleTodo = createEvent()
const todoList = createStore([
{text: 'write useList example', done: true},
{text: 'update readme', done: false},
])
.on(toggleTodo, (list, id) =>
list.map((todo, i) => {
if (i === id)
return {
...todo,
done: !todo.done,
}
return todo
}),
)
.on(addTodo, (list, e) => [
...list,
{
text: e.currentTarget.elements.content.value,
done: false,
},
])
addTodo.watch(e => {
e.preventDefault()
})
const TodoList = () =>
useList(todoList, ({text, done}, i) => {
const todo = done ? (
<del>
<span>{text}</span>
</del>
) : (
<span>{text}</span>
)
return <li onClick={() => toggleTodo(i)}>{todo}</li>
})
const App = () => (
<div>
<h1>todo list</h1>
<form onSubmit={addTodo}>
<label htmlFor="content">New todo</label>
<input type="text" name="content" required />
<input type="submit" value="Add" />
</form>
<ul>
<TodoList />
</ul>
</div>
)

Try it

By default, useList rerenders only when some of its items were changed. However, sometimes we need to update items when some external value (e.g. props field or state of another store) is changed. In such cases, we need to tell react about our dependencies and pass keys explicitly.

Example 2

import React from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
import {createEvent, createStore, restore} from 'effector'
import {useStore, useList} from 'effector-react'
const renameUser = createEvent()
const user = restore(renameUser, 'alice')
const friends = createStore(['bob'])
const List = () => {
const userName = useStore(user)
return useList(friends, {
keys: [userName],
fn: friend => (
<div>
{friend} is a friend of {userName}
</div>
),
})
}
ReactDOM.render(<List />, document.getElementById('root'))
// => <div> bob is a friend of alice </div>
setTimeout(() => {
renameUser('carol')
// => <div> bob is a friend of carol </div>
}, 500)
