React If Component npm badge

Render React components conditionally.

This component helps you turn this

render: function() {
    return (
        <div>
            <Header />
            {this.renderBody()}
            </Footer>
        </div>
    );
},
 
renderBody: function() {
 return (this.props.age >= this.props.drinkingAge)
    ? <span class="ok">Have a beer, {this.props.name}!</span>
    : <span class="not-ok">Sorry {this.props.name } you are not old enough.</span>;
}

into this

render: function() {
    return (
        <div>
            <Header />
            <If when={ this.props.age >= this.props.drinkingAge }>
                <Then><span class="ok">Have a beer, {this.props.name}!</span></Then>
                <Else><span class="not-ok">Sorry {this.props.name}, you are not old enough.</span></Else>
            </If>
            </Footer>
        </div>
    );
}

Caveats

With this approach to conditional elements, children of either branch will always be evaluated no matter what. This can be an issue eg. if you're testing an object for nullity, and then try to access one of its property inside of the Then branch. See this StackOverflow discussion as well as issue #1 for more informations.

Install

npm install react-if-component

    render: function() {
      return (<div>Stage2</div>);
    }
});
 
var Beer = React.createClass({
 
    getInitialState: function() {
      return {
        stage: true
      };
    },
 
    changeStage() {
      this.setState({ stage: !this.state.stage })
    },
 
    render: function() {
      return (

          <If when={ this.state.stage }>
