NestedReact is the BackboneJS compatibility layer for React-MVx - modern React MVVM application framework. It will be maintained as long as Verizon/Volicon systems will depend in the legacy technologies - BackboneJS Views and jQuery.
If you don't need to reuse BackboneJS Views in your React application - please, switch to ReactMVx.
NestedReact documentation won't be updated. Use React-MVx docs as your primary source of docs.
Feature list consists of all the features of React-MVx v2.x, plus this:
- Gradual transition procedure for backbone applications (Backbone Migration Guide):
- Complete interoperation with existing Backbone Views allowing you to reuse existing code and avoid upfront application rewrite.
- Any type of application refactoring strategy is possible - top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top, and random parts at the middle.
- Support for Backbone events and jQuery accessors in React components simplifies View refactoring.
Please, use React-MVx documentation as a primary source of documentation and examples.
Installation and Requirements
It's packed as single UMD, thus grab the module or use
npm to install.
It has NestedTypes model framework,
underscore as strong dependencies.
npm install --save-dev nestedreact nestedtypes underscore jquery react react-dom prop-types
Module extends React namespace (without modifying original React), and its
safe to use it as a replacement for
import React from 'nestedreact'
If you're migrating from backbone-based frameworks such as
you need to do following things to make convergence layer work properly:
Make sure that frameworks includes
On application start, tell
nestedreactto use proper base class for the View.
React.useView( Chaplin.View );
