React Stately

This package allows you to easily manage state in forms or anything else - using hooks!


Wrap your form (or any other component) in Stately. Any child components can now use Stately hooks - see below.

import { Stately } from '@1productaweek/react-stately'

<Stately initialValue={{ abc: 1 }}>
  <form onSubmit={onSubmitHandler}>
    <StatelyInput field='name.of.prop' />

You can also pass in a function as a child, to get access to the stately controller.

import { Stately } from '@1productaweek/react-stately'

<Stately initialValue={{ abc: 1 }}>
  {(stately: StatelyController, value: any) => (
    <StatelyInput field='name.of.prop' />

Create your own Stately inputs

You can use useStatelyField hook to easily create your own inputs.

import React from 'react'
import { useStatelyField } from '@1productaweek/react-stately'

function StatelyInput ({ field, onChange, initialValue, forwardedRef, ...props }: any) => {
  const [value, setValue] = useStatelyField(field, { initialValue })
  return (
      value={!value ? '' : value}
      onChange={(e: any) => {
        if (onChange) onChange(e)



Gets the stately controller. Stately controller has methods: getValue(field), setValue(field, value) and watch(field, fn)

import { useStately } from '@1productaweek/react-stately'

const stately = useStately()

useStatelyField(field, options)

Allows you to get/set a specific field value in the stately tree. If trackChildren is set, then value is updated for any change to path.to.prop and for any changes to it's children values (e.g. path.to.prop.child).

import { useStatelyField } from '@1productaweek/react-stately'

const [value, setValue] = useStatelyField('path.to.prop', { initialValue: 'init', trackChildren: true })

useStatelyArray(field, initialValue)

Allows you to create and manage an array value. Arrays work differently, because ordering is important. initialValue defaults to [].

useStatelyArray returns an object with the following props:

  • fields - an array of objects - key, field, remove() and initialValue
  • add() - add a blank value to the array
  • addWithInitialValue -
  • remove() - remove an item at the specified index
  • move(fromIndex, toIndex) - move array item from one position ot another
import { useStatelyArray } from '@1productaweek/react-stately'

const {
  fields, add, addWithInitialValue, remove, move
} = useStatelyArray('path.to.prop', ['abc'])

const els = fields.map(({ key, field, remove }, i) => (
    <StatelyInput field={field} key={key} />
    <button onClick={remove}>Delete</button>
