Reapp is a simple state-management and routing library for React. It intentionally defies "best-practices" in order to make apps easy to build without losing the ability to architect large apps well.

  • State is stored in stores which are mutated (shutter!)
  • Routing is done without update the url, or handling back gracefully (oh no!)
  • The entire app is refreshed every time a store is updated (gasp!)


npm install @mcrowe/reapp --save

import { Store, Router, subscribe } from '@mcrowe/reapp'
import App from './app'
import Home from './scenes'
import Page from './scenes'

// Use "Store" for a subscribable data store
const store = new Store({counter: 5})

store.get().counter // 5

// Update the store and broadcast changes
store.update(v =>
  v.counter += 1

store.get().counter = 7
store.set() // broadcast changes outside of a broadcast

// Use "Router" to handle navigation
const router = new Router({path: 'home', params: {}})

router.route('home', App)
router.route('page', Page)

router.push('page', {id: 5})

router.getCurrentRoute() // {path: 'home', params: {}}

// Use "subscribe" to subscribe any component to changes
// in one or more "ISubscribable" (router, store, ...)
const SubscribedApp = subscribe(router, store)(App)
