Plugin for printing your static-console messages in more declarative way using React.



$ npm install --save static-console-plugin-react-output



const c = require('static-console');
const React = require('react');
const ReactDOM = require('react-dom');
const ReactOutput = require('static-console-plugin-react-output');

class MyLogComponent extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
    render() {
        return React.createElement(
            'div', this.props,

document.addEventListener('readystatechange', () => {
    if (document.readyState == 'complete') {
        c.outputs.myLog = new ReactOutput({
            onUpdate: messages => {
                        { messages: messages, id: 'log', style: { whiteSpace: 'pre-wrap' } }
        c.routers.std.tasks.set(c.outputs.myLog, c.models.raw);// We add task for StdRouter bundled with StaticConsole to convert messages with RawModel`Starting log`);
        c.reset('react', `React`);
        c.log(`Thanks for using React!`);
        c.log(`Third message`);

Test in any browser environment bundled with Node.js.

  1. First of all, create element main in your DOM. This can be done in HTML.

  2. This code creates instance of ReactOutput right after DOM is complete.

    There you need to assign function to onUpdate.

  3. In this function you call needed rendering functions.

    Cause ReactOutput doesn't have access to your React markup, you call ReactDOM.render with react element and root node.

  4. Displaying messages in react element is possible with use of messages property, that used in rendering of MyLogComponent.

  5. So, there you go: log some messages.

Element main must contain something like:

<div id="log">
    <p class="message info">Starting log</p>
    <p class="message">[React] Thanks for using React!/p>
    <p class="message">Third message</p>

(as seen in inspector)


model is the object that should have descriptive properties:

  • type - message type name. If it is falsy, then ReactOutput.regularType will be used to mark message as regular.
  • data - string with message. It could be converted with RawModel.


This option is required to print something. It must be callable function, where first argument is messages array, that are used in rendering of log component.

onUpdate is called when any message is printed and on first run.


React.Component or string with tag name that is used to create message node in DOM. Default: 'p';


Object of properties' names as keys and their values (JavaScript equivalent of attributes in DOM). String values will be parsed in such way:

  • contents in square brackets gonna be removed if message type is falsy, brackets themselves are removed,
  • $T will be replaced with message type name.

Default: { className: 'message[ $T]' }.


Type name that is used as fallback for falsy type (i.e. null value). Default: 'regular'.
