No nonsense JavaScript styling for React DOM projects


Overview

Lucid is a collection of React Components that should be used to create your Presentational Components. Lucid uses state and context to determine which styles to apply to a given Component; it maps keys from your styles object to Components with a matching name prop, avoiding the need for class names.

Checkout this example to see how Lucid can be used to create a simple UI accordion:

import React, { useState } from 'react';
import { Module, Component } from '@onenexus/lucid';
 
const styles = () => ({
  heading: ({ context, state }) => ({
    backgroundColor: 'red',
    
    ...(context.panel.isOpen && {
      backgroundColor: 'blue'
    }),
    
    ':hover': {
      backgroundColor: 'purple'
    },
 
    // ...or alternatively:
    ...(state.isHovered && {
      backgroundColor: 'purple'
    })
  }),
 
  content: ({ context }) => ({
    display: context.panel.isOpen ? 'block' : 'none'
  })
});
 
const Accordion = ({ panels, ...props }) => {
  const [activeIndex, toggle] = useState(0);
 
  return (
    <Module name='Accordion' styles={styles} { ...props }>
      {panels.map(({ heading, content }, index) => (
        <Component name='panel' isOpen={index === activeIndex}>
          <Component name='heading' onClick={() => toggle(index === activeIndex ? -1 : index)}>
            {heading}
          </Component>
          <Component name='content' content={content} />
        </Component>
      ))}
    </Module>
  );
}
 
export default Accordion;

Features

How it Works

  • Utilises React's context API under the hood
  • Singular styles object (or function that returns an object) passed to <Module>
  • Styles are mapped to child Components by matching keys with <Component> name props
  • Parent props/state are available as context, self props/state are available as state

NOT CSS-in-JS!

Whilst Lucid is a JavaScript tool for authoring styles, we don't consider it to be "CSS-in-JS". CSS is a language with its own rules and concepts such as classes, selectors, pseudo-elements, cascading, etc. Lucid is not a tool for translating CSS paradigms into JavaScript (unlike other solutions) - it is a tool for applying CSS properties to your React Components using a super friendly API. It results in inline-styles being applied to the DOM - Lucid doesn't generate any CSS.
