So erstellen Sie ein in Echtzeit bearbeitbares Datagrid in React

Mit einem Datagrid können Sie Daten anzeigen und bearbeiten. Dies ist eine wichtige Funktion in den meisten datengesteuerten Anwendungen.

Möglicherweise haben Sie dies in der Vergangenheit in einer Ihrer React-Apps implementiert. Vielleicht haben Sie Bibliotheken wie React-Bootstrap-Table, React-Grid oder React-Table verwendet. Mit diesen können Sie Ihrer React-App ein Datagrid hinzufügen. Aber was ist, wenn Sie möchten, dass die Änderungen in Echtzeit vorgenommen und Updates auf allen verbundenen Geräten und ihren Browsern synchronisiert werden?

In diesem Artikel werde ich Ihnen zeigen, wie Sie in React mithilfe von React-Table und Hamoni Sync ein Echtzeit-Datagrid erstellen.

React-Table ist eine einfache und schnelle Bibliothek zum Rendern von Tabellen in React. Sie unterstützt die Paginierung und viele weitere Funktionen.

Hamoni Sync ist ein Echtzeit-Status-Synchronisierungsdienst, mit dem Sie Ihren Anwendungsstatus in Echtzeit synchronisieren können. Ich werde Ihnen zeigen, wie Sie ein Datagrid mit dem Vor- und Nachnamen von Personen erstellen.

Wenn Sie mitmachen möchten, sollten Sie über Kenntnisse in React verfügen und die folgenden Tools installiert haben:

  1. NodeJS
  2. npm & npx. Wenn Sie npm Version 5.2.0 oder höher installiert haben, wird npx neben npm installiert.
  3. create-react-app

Erstellen Sie die React-App

Zuerst erstellen wir ein neues React-Projekt mit der create-react-App.

Öffnen Sie die Befehlszeile und führen Sie sie aus npx create-react-app realtime-react-datatable. Dadurch wird eine React-Anwendung für uns gebootet, indem ein neues Verzeichnis realtime-react-datatablemit den Dateien erstellt wird, die zum Erstellen einer React-Anwendung erforderlich sind.

Mit der erstellten React-App müssen wir React-Table und Hamoni Sync installieren. Führen Sie cd realtime-react-datatabledas Programm aus, um in das Verzeichnis für die App zu wechseln. Führen Sie npm i react-table hamoni-syncin der Befehlszeile aus, um beide Pakete zu installieren.

Rendern Sie das Datagrid

Zum Rendern des Datagrids verwenden wir die React-Table-Komponente. Öffnen Sie die Datei src/App.jsund aktualisieren Sie sie mit dem folgenden Code:

import React, { Component } from "react";import logo from "./logo.svg";import "./App.css";// Import React Tableimport ReactTable from "react-table";import "react-table/react-table.css";// Import Hamoni Syncimport Hamoni from "hamoni-sync";
class App extends Component { constructor() { super(); this.state = { data: [], firstName: "", lastName: "" }; }
 handleChange = event => { if (event.target.name === "firstName") this.setState({ firstName: event.target.value }); if (event.target.name === "lastName") this.setState({ lastName: event.target.value }); };
 handleSubmit = event => { event.preventDefault(); };
 renderEditable = cellInfo => { return ( { const data = [...this.state.data]; data[cellInfo.index][cellInfo.column.id] = e.target.innerHTML; this.setState({ data }); }} dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: this.state.data[cellInfo.index][cellInfo.column.id] }} /> ); };
 render() { const { data } = this.state;
 return ( 

Welcome to React

Add new record

FirstName: {" "} LastName:

( ) } ]} defaultPageSize={10} className="-striped -highlight" /> ); }}
export default App;

Der obige Code rendert ein Formular und eine bearbeitbare React-Table-Komponente. /> renders a component with data, columns, and defaultPageSize props. The data props holds the data to display, and columns props for the column definition. The accessor property in columns props indicates the property that holds the value to be displayed for that column. Cell: this.renderEditable property in columns props tells react-table that the column is editable. The other functions (handleSubmit & handleChange) allows getting new data entry from the form on the page.

Add Hamoni Sync

The data for the datagrid will be retrieved and updated in real-time using Hamoni Sync. We already imported the Hamoni library on line 18 in App.js;

import Hamoni from "hamoni-sync";

We need to initialize it and connect to Hamoni server. To do this we need an account and application ID. Follow these steps to create an application in Hamoni.

  1. Register and login to Hamoni dashboard
  2. Enter your preferred application name in the text field and click the create button. This should create the app and display it in the application list section.
  3. Click the button “Show AccountID” to see your account ID.

Original text


Add the following code to App.js to initialise and connect to Hamoni Sync server.

componentDidMount() { let hamoni = new Hamoni("ACCOUNT_ID", "APP_ID");
 hamoni .connect() .then(() =>; {
 }) .catch(console.log); }

The code above will connect the client device or browser to Hamoni Sync server. Copy your account and application ID from the dashboard and replace them with the string placeholder respectively.

Add the following to the function in the then() block, to be executed when it successfully connects to the server:

hamoni .get("datagrid") .then(listPrimitive => { this.listPrimitive = listPrimitive;
 this.setState({ data: [...listPrimitive.getAll()] });
 listPrimitive.onItemAdded(item => { this.setState({ data: [...this.state.data, item.value] }); });
 listPrimitive.onItemUpdated(item => { let data = [ ...this.state.data.slice(0, item.index), item.value, ...this.state.data.slice(item.index + 1) ];
 this.setState({ data: data }); });
 listPrimitive.onSync(data => { this.setState({ data: data }); }); }) .catch(console.log);

The code above calls hamoni.get("datagrid") to get the data, with datagrid as the name of the application state on Hamoni Sync. Hamoni Sync allows you to store 3 kinds of state referred to as Sync primitives. They are:

  1. Value Primitive: This kind of state holds simple information represented with datatypes like string, boolean or numbers. It is best suited for cases such as unread message count, toggles, etc.
  2. Object Primitive: Object state represents states that can be modeled as a JavaScript object. An example usage could be storing the score of a game.
  3. List Primitive: This holds a list of state objects. A state object is a JavaScript object. You can update an item based on its index in the list.

If the state is available it resolves and returns a promise with the state primitive object. This object gives us access to methods to update state and get state updates in real-time.

On line 36 we used the getAll() method to get data and set the state for the React component. Also, the methods onItemAdded() and onItemUpdated() are used to get updates when an item is added or updated. The onSync() method is useful in a scenario where a device or browser loses connection, and when it reconnects, it tries to get the latest state from the server and update the local state if there's any.

Add & Update items

From the previous section, we are able to get the data for the datagrid and update the state when an item is added or update. Let’s add code to add new items and update an item when a column has been edited. Add the following code to the handleSubmit method:

handleSubmit = event => { this.listPrimitive.push({ firstName: this.state.firstName, lastName: this.state.lastName }); this.setState({ firstName: "", lastName: "" }); event.preventDefault();};

This code gets the first and last name from the form and adds it to the list state primitive on Hamoni Sync by calling the push() method. This will trigger the onItemAdded() method.

In order to update items as they get edited in the datagrid, we will update the function passed to the onBlur props on line 84 as follows:

onBlur={e => { let row = this.state.data[cellInfo.index]; row[cellInfo.column.id] = e.target.innerHTML; this.listPrimitive.update(cellInfo.index, row);}}

This code updates the item at the index retrieved from the cellInfo object. To update a list state primitive in Hamoni Sync, you call the update()method with the index of the item and the value to update. The renderEditable method should now look like this after the last change:

renderEditable = cellInfo => { return ( { let row = this.state.data[cellInfo.index]; row[cellInfo.column.id] = e.target.innerHTML; this.listPrimitive.update(cellInfo.index, row); }} dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: this.state.data[cellInfo.index][cellInfo.column.id] }} /> ); };

At this point we have almost all that’s needed to run the app except the initial data that will be rendered on the datagrid.

We need to create the state and give it some data on Hamoni Sync. Add a new file seed.js at the root of your working directory and add to it the following code:

const Hamoni = require("hamoni-sync");
let hamoni = new Hamoni("AccountID", "APP_ID");
hamoni .connect() .then(response => { hamoni .createList("datagrid", [ { firstName: "James", lastName: "Darwin" }, { firstName: "Jimmy", lastName: "August" } ]) .then(() => console.log("create success")) .catch(console.log); }) .catch(console.log);

This will create a list primitive state on Hamoni Sync, with a name of datagrid. Replace the AccountID and APP_ID string with your account and application ID. Open the command line and run node seed.js. This should succeed and print out create success message.

Now we can start the React app and see our app in action! Run the command npm start in the command line and it'll open the application in your default browser.

Hooray! We have a real-time editable datagrid with pagination!

Conclusion

We have built a real-time datagrid in React using react-table and Hamoni Sync. With react-table powering the datagrid and Hamoni Sync handling the state for the datagrid. This was all achieved in few lines of code and less effort designing real-time state logic. You can get the finished app of what we built on GitHub. It’s possible to track which cell is being edited or lock the cells currently being edited by another user. I’ll leave that as a weekend hack for you.

Feel free to leave a comment if anything is not clear or encounter problems while trying to add lock or highlight cells being edited.

Happy coding ?
