React Easy Editables

Editable fields for inline content editing.

Currently the package includes the following types of editable fields:

Content type Editor type
Plain text Text input
Paragraph Rich text editor
Number Number input
Image Image uploader with preview
Background Image Image uploader with preview
File File uploader
Link Text inputs for URL and anchor

You can also create custom editable areas by using the generic Editable component, as demonstrated further down.

Usage

The EditablesContext uses React's context API to provide the properties showEditingControls and theme to the editable components lower in the tree.

Each of the editable fields receives a content object and an onSave function that defines the content to be displayed/edited and the callback that receives the updated content.

Example

import React from 'react';
import { EditablesContext, theme } from 'react-easy-editables';

import PlainText from 'react-easy-editables';

class App extends React.Component {
  state = {
    showEditingControls: true,
    theme: theme,
    title: { text: "Editable title" },
  }

  handleSave = text => {
    this.setState({ title: { text } })
  }

  render() {
    const { title, ...rest } = this.state;

    return(
      <EditablesContext.Provider value={ {...rest} }>
        <h1>
          <PlainText content={title} onSave={this.handleSave} />
        </h1>
      </EditablesContext.Provider>
    );
  }
}

Theme

You can update the appearance of the editable fields by updating the theme object. These are the defaults:

export const theme = {
  primaryColor: "#FF6C45",
  fontFamily: "sans-serif",
  fontSize: 14,
  editContainer: {
    backgroundColor: "rgba(255,255,255,0.3)",
    border: "1px solid black",
    position: "relative",
    padding: "8px",
  },
  editContainerHighlight: {
    backgroundColor: "rgba(255,255,255,0.9)",
    border: "1px solid #FF6C45",
    zIndex: "2500",
  },
  actions: {
    position: "absolute",
    left: "4px",
    top: "-10px",
    display: "flex",
    alignItems: "center",
    zIndex: "99",
  },
  button: {
    border: "1px solid #000",
    color: "black",
    backgroundColor: "#fff",
    height: "18px",
    width: "18px",
    borderRadius: "30px",
    cursor: "pointer",
    display: "flex",
    justifyContent: "center",
    alignItems: "center",
    marginRight: "4px",
    "&:hover": {
      backgroundColor: "grey"
    }
  },
  saveButton: {
    backgroundColor: "#FF6C45",
  },
  cancelButton: {
    backgroundColor: "#FF6C45",
  },
  icon: {
    fontSize: "14px"
  }
};

Custom editable fields

You can create custom editable fields by using the generic Editable component. The Editable component does the following:

  • reads from context whether or not to show the editing controls
  • renders the content wrapped in the editing controls or just the content according to the showEditingControls property on the context
  • toggles the isEditing state which then renders the editor component
  • passes a content object to the editor component
  • passes the updated content object from the editor component back to the parent component when the save button is clicked

Example

import React from "react";
import Editable from "./Editable";
import PlainTextEditor from "react-easy-editables";

const EditableFeatureCard = props => {
  const handleSave = field => newContent => {
    props.updateContent(field, newContent);
  };

  const { content } = props;

  return (
    <div className="col-md-3 col-sm-12 service-sub text-center">
      <i className="icon-tools  icon-extra-large fast-yellow-text margin-seven no-margin-lr no-margin-top"></i>
      <span className="text-medium font-weight-600 letter-spacing-2 text-uppercase black-text margin-one no-margin-lr no-margin-top display-block alt-font">
        <Editable
          editor={PlainTextEditor}
          content={{ text: content.header }}
          handleSave={ handleSave("header") }
        >
          {content.header}
        </Editable>
      </span>

      <Editable
        editor={PlainTextEditor}
        content={{ text: content.description }}
        handleSave={ handleSave("description") }
      >
        <p className="text-medium width-80 center-col">{content.description}</p>
      </Editable>
    </div>
  );
};

export default EditableFeatureCard;

Editable

The generic Editable component allows you to create custom editable fields. It renders the EditorWrapper when the showEditingControls is true, and its children otherwise. The EditorWrapper shows the editor controls, and when the "edit" button is clicked it renders the editor component passed in through the Editor prop.

onDelete func Callback function when editable field is deleted. The delete button only renders if this prop is present.
classes string String to be applied as the className property on the editor components.
fullWidth bool When true, the editor wrapper takes up the full width of its container and editing controls are moved within the wrapper.
disableDelete bool When true, the delete button is removed, even if the onDelete function is present
isContentClickTarget bool Should the element itself be a click target to start editing - defaults to true. When false, the edit button must be clicked to start editing.
