    Usage

    import React from 'react'
    import { render } from 'react-dom'
    import hold from 'react-hold'
    import MyComponent from './path/to/MyCompnent'
     
    // make the bulit-in component has a placeholder
    const P = hold('p', (props) => !props.children)
     
    // make the composite component has a placeholder
    const MyComponentWithPlaceholder = hold(MyComponent, (props) => !props.data)
     
    class App extends React.Component {
      constructor(...args) {
        super(...args)
        this.state = {
          title: '',
          data: null,
        }
      }
     
      render() {
        return (
          <div className="my-class-name">
            <P>{ this.state.title }</P>
            <MyComponentWithPlaceholder data={this.state.data} />
          </div>
        )
      }
    }
     
    render(<App />, document.body)

    If you want to make your component has a placeholder by default, try decorator.

    import { holdify } from 'react-hold'
     
    @holdify((props) => !props.data)
    class MyComponent extends React.Component {
      render() {
        return <div className="add-some-style">{ this.props.data }</div>
      }
    }

    API

    import hold, { holdify } from 'react-hold'

    hold(Component, condition, [defaultHolder], [holderDefaultProps])

    Create a higher-order component to manage the original component and placeholder component.

    Arguments
    • Component (Component) [Required]: The target(original) component, should be a dumb(presentational) component.
    • condition (Function) [Required]: The condition function will be called with arguments props and prevProps. It needs to returns a boolean value to judge whether to show the placeholder component(true means yes). If returns false, the higher-order component will remove the placeholder component, and show the original component.
    • defaultHolder (Component) [Optional]: The default placeholder component. Default Fill.
    • holderDefaultProps (Object) [Optional]: The default props of placeholder component.
    Returns

    (Component): A higher-order component, control the display of original component and placeholder component.

    The higher-order component supports these props:

    • holder (Component) [Optional]: The placeholder component, will override the default placeholder.
    • holderProps (Object) [Optional]: The props of placeholder component, will shallow override the default props.
    • props (Object) [Optional]: The alias of holderProps.
    • innerRef (Function|String) [Optional]: The ref of original component.

    The rest props will be passed to the original component.
