What is it

A form handling library for React very similar to Formik.

It's laid out to be performant and thus uses Faceboook's ImmutableJS internally to handle the whole form state.

At some point it will utilize ECMA Records & Tuples instead.

It primarily uses hooks and functional components.

You don't need to know anything about the ImmutableJS API and you don't need to interact with it, it's completely hidden in the features of this library.

Why?

Formik was too slow for my needs. In every other regard, Formik is pretty awesome, so the API is loosely designed in the same way.

Features

  • React & React Native support.
  • Hooks to easily build custom components utilizing all features.
  • Blazing fast. Got a form with over 300 fields and quick updates? No problem, thanks to ImmutableJS.
  • All HTML inputs available as fully integrated and easy to use components.
  • Yup-Validation in-built, validator-agnostic.
  • Can be used alongside Formik or as a (almost) drop-in replacement.

Install

// Yarn
yarn add @talesoft/react-forms

// NPM
npm i @talesoft/react-forms

TypeScript typings are included (No @types/ package needed)

How to use it

Basic Login Form

import { Form, FormElement, InputField } from '@talesoft/react-forms'
import { useMemo } from 'react'

function MyForm(): JSX.Element {

  // The initial values of the form inputs
  // Make sure it keeps referential integrity
  const initialValue = useMemo(() => ({
    email: '',
    password: '',
  }), [])

  // The function that is called when 
  function onSubmit(value) {
    myApi.tokens.create({
      email: value.email,
      password: value.password,
    })
  }

  return (
    {/* This is the core of a form */}
    <Form initialValue={initialValue} onSubmit={onSubmit}>
      {/* The HTML Form element */}
      <FormElement>
        {/* This acts like a normal HTML <input /> */}
        <InputField type="email" name="email" />

        <InputField type="password" name="password" />

        <button type="submit">Login</button>
      </FormElement>
    </Form>
  )
}

Nested Form

import { Form, FormElement, InputField } from '@talesoft/react-forms'
import { useMemo } from 'react'

function MyForm(): JSX.Element {
  const initialValue = useMemo(() => ({
    firstName: 'John',
    lastName: 'Doe',
    social: {
      linkedIn: '',
      twitter: '',
      facebook: '',
    },
  }), [])

  function onSubmit(value) {
    myApi.users.update(value)
  }

  return (
    <Form initialValue={initialValue} onSubmit={onSubmit}>
      <FormElement>
        <InputField name="firstName" />
        <InputField name="lastName" />

        <InputField name="social.linkedIn" />
        <InputField name="social.twitter" />
        <InputField name="social.facebook" />

        <button type="submit">Update</button>
      </FormElement>
    </Form>
  )
}

Form Arrays

import {
  Form,
  FormElement,
  InputField,
  FieldArray,
  SelectField
} from '@talesoft/react-forms'
import { useMemo } from 'react'

function MyForm(): JSX.Element {
  const initialValue = useMemo(() => ({
    address: '',
    openingHours: [
      {
        weekday: 'mo',
        startTime: '10:30:00',
        endTime: '18:30:00',
      },
    ]
  }), [])

  function onSubmit(value) {
    myApi.users.update(value)
  }

  return (
    <Form initialValue={initialValue} onSubmit={onSubmit}>
      <FormElement>
        <InputField name="address" />
        
        <h3>Opening Hours</h3>
        <FieldArray name="openingHours">
          {({ map, push }) => (
            <div>
              {map(({ key, childName, remove }) => (
                <div key={key}>
                  <SelectField name={childName('weekday')}>
                    <option value="mo">Monday</option>
                    <option value="tu">Tuesday</option>
                    <option value="we">Wednesday</option>
                    {/* etc.. */}
                  </SelectField>
                  <InputField type="time" name={childName('startTime')} />
                  <InputField type="time" name={childName('endTime')} />
                </div>
              ))}
              <button type="button" onClick={() => push(initialValue)}>
                Add another weekday
              </button>
            </div>
          )}
        </FieldArray>

        <button type="submit">Update</button>
      </FormElement>
    </Form>
  )
}

Too bulky? Use hooks to build own components!

// OpeningHoursField.jsx
import React, { useMemo } from 'react'
import { useFieldArray } from '@talesoft/react-forms'

export default function OpeningHoursField({ name }) {
  const { map, push } = useFieldArray(name)
  return (
    <div>
      {map(({ childName, remove }) => (
        <div>
          <SelectField name={childName('weekday')}>
            <option value="mo">Monday</option>
            <option value="tu">Tuesday</option>
            <option value="we">Wednesday</option>
            {/* etc.. */}
          </SelectField>
          <InputField type="time" name={childName('startTime')} />
          <InputField type="time" name={childName('endTime')}/>
        </div>
      ))}
      <button type="button" onClick={() => push(initialValue)}>
        Add another weekday
      </button>
    </div>
  )
}
// MyForm.jsx
import {
  Form,
  FormElement,
} from '@talesoft/react-forms'
import OpeningHoursField from './OpeningHoursField'
import React, { useMemo } from 'react'

function MyForm() {
  const initialValue = useMemo(() => ({
    address: '',
    openingHours: [
      {
        weekday: 'mo',
        startTime: '10:30:00',
        endTime: '18:30:00',
      },
    ]
  }), [])

  function onSubmit(value) {
    myApi.users.update(value)
  }

  return (
    <Form initialValue={initialValue} onSubmit={onSubmit}>
      <FormElement>
        <InputField name="address" />
        
        <h3>Opening Hours</h3>
        <OpeningHoursField name="openingHours" />

        <button type="submit">Update</button>
      </FormElement>
    </Form>
  )
}
