React bindings for url-io Request and mutate data using a standard interface passed through React context.

Passing IO through context

Adds IO to context. Use once at the root of your app.

import React from 'react'
import {IOProvider} from 'react-io'
import io from './io'

export default function App() {
  return <IOProvider io={io}>...</IOProvider>

Consuming io


Returns a higher-order-component (HOC) that pulls io from context and passes it to the wrapped component as a prop.

Pass it a map of urls or a mapper to turn props into a map of urls and it will add the resolved values to the prop stream.

import {withIO} from 'react-io'

export default withIO({
  auth: '/auth',
})(function Widget({io, auth}) {
  return auth ? <div>{auth.username}</div> : <div>Not authorized</div>

useIO([path, params])


Used to request values from io. By default, it suspends until the observable resolves.

import {useIO} from 'react-io'

export default function Widget() {
  const auth = useIO('/auth')

  return auth ? <div>{auth.username}</div> : <div>Not authorized</div>

When called without any args, it returns the io function that can be used in callbacks.

import {useIO} from 'react-io'

export default function Widget() {
  const io = useIO()

  return <button onClick={() => io('/path', 'SAVE', {value: 'x'})}>Save</button>

Add startWith to params to provide a starting value and avoid suspense. This param is omitted from other params passed to io.

import {useIO} from 'react-io'

export default function Widget() {
  const auth = useIO('/auth', {startWith: undefined})

  return auth === undefined ? (
  ) : auth ? (
  ) : (
    <div>Not authorized</div>

Hooks require that observables are subscribed to optimistically and cached outside of React state. This means there may be cached subscriptions in an orphaned or errored state. pruneCache() is available to clean all unused cache entries when needed.
