    format-to-jsx

    ūüĎČ Take note that this package is in still early stage of development, and there might be breaking changes introduced while we are finalizing on the API

    String formatter with support of injecting JSX elements as parameters.

    yarn add format-to-jsx
     
    # or with npm 
     
    npm install format-to-jsx --save

    Example

    import { format } from 'format-to-jsx'
     
    format('This is a string template with a {0} based placeholder', 'number')
     
    // This is a string template with a number based placeholder

    Supported template strings

    format-to-jsx supports two ways of doing template strings:

    Index based template placeholders

    Those are template strings where placeholders are based on {X} format where X is a positive integer based index. Each placeholder will be replaced by a corresponding parameter value provided, respecting order of parameters:

    format('Example {1} with different placeholders order {0}', 1, 2)
     
    // Example 2 with different placeholders order 1

    String based template placeholders

    Those are template strings where placeholders are based on {some_string} format where some_string is a no-white space string. Each placeholder will be replaced by corresponding parameter passed via an object - object keys are used as lookup:

    const params = { one: 1, two: 2 }
     
    format('Example {two} with different placeholders order {one}', params)
     
    // Example 2 with different placeholders order 1

    JSX arguments

    Values passed as arguments, either with index or string based placeholders can be of type string, number or React.ReactNode. That enables you to create complex HTML while not injecting and manipulating the DOM outside of React scope. Result of a formatting with JSX will be a fragment instead of string:

    format('Example {1} with different placeholders order {0}', 1, <strong>2</strong>)
     
    // <>Example <strong>2</strong> with different placeholders order 1<>

    Template string with placeholders provided with {} braces. Index based placeholders starting with 0 OR string based placeholders are supported.

    API

    Params

    template
    Type Required
    string true

    Template string with placeholders provided with {} braces. Index based placeholders starting with 0 OR string based placeholders are supported.

    ...args[]
    Type Required
    (string \| number \| React.ReactNode)[] OR { [key: string]: string \| number \| React.ReactNode } true

    When working with index based params / placeholders, each parameter will replace corresponding index placeholder. Values can be passed as primitives or React.ReactNode. When working with string based params / placeholders, object with matching keys should be used.

    return
    • string - if only primitive params were used, returned value is a string.
    • React.Fragment - if any of parameters provided was a React.ReactNode, returned value will be a React Fragment.

    Error and warnings:

    When running in dev mode (process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production') the format-to-jsx will throw some console.warn to help you spotting incorrect formatting issues like passing different number of arguments than placeholders in the template or when matching placeholder was not paired with a parameter.

    If template passed is undefined or null will throw and exception.
