Quick Start

Demo

import { CartProvider, useCart } from "react-use-cart";

function Page() {
  const { addItem } = useCart();

  const products = [
    {
      id: 1,
      name: "Malm",
      price: 9900,
    },
    {
      id: 2,
      name: "Nordli",

    },
    {
      id: 3,
      name: "Kullen",
      price: 4500,
    },
  ];

  return (
    <div>
      {products.map((p) => (
        <div key={p.id}>
          <button onClick={() => addItem(p)}>Add to cart</button>
        </div>
      ))}
    </div>
  );
}

function Cart() {
  const {
    isEmpty,
    totalUniqueItems,
    items,
    updateItemQuantity,
    removeItem,
  } = useCart();

  if (isEmpty) return <p>Your cart is empty</p>;

  return (
    <>
      <h1>Cart ({totalUniqueItems})</h1>

      <ul>
        {items.map((item) => (
          <li key={item.id}>
            {item.quantity} x {item.name} &mdash;
            <button
              onClick={() => updateItemQuantity(item.id, item.quantity - 1)}
            >
              -
            </button>
            <button
              onClick={() => updateItemQuantity(item.id, item.quantity + 1)}
            >
              +
            </button>
            <button onClick={() => removeItem(item.id)}>&times;</button>
          </li>
        ))}
      </ul>
    </>
  );
}

function App() {
  return (
    <CartProvider>
      <Page />
      <Cart />
    </CartProvider>
  );
}

Install

npm install react-use-cart # yarn add react-use-cart

CartProvider

You will need to wrap your application with the CartProvider component so that the useCart hook can access the cart state.

Carts are persisted across visits using localStorage, unless you specify your own storage adapter.

Usage

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import { CartProvider } from "react-use-cart";

ReactDOM.render(
  <CartProvider>{/* render app/cart here */}</CartProvider>,
  document.getElementById("root")
);

Props

Prop Required Description
id No id for your cart to enable automatic cart retrieval via window.localStorage. If you pass a id then you can use multiple instances of CartProvider.
onSetItems No Triggered only when setItems invoked.
onItemAdd No Triggered on items added to your cart, unless the item already exists, then onItemUpdate will be invoked.
onItemUpdate No Triggered on items updated in your cart, unless you are setting the quantity to 0, then onItemRemove will be invoked.
onItemRemove No Triggered on items removed from your cart.
storage No Must return [getter, setter].
metadata No Custom global state on the cart. Stored inside of metadata.
