Intent router

A router abstraction over React-native-navigation and Mobx.
It provides a concise way to separate navigation and app structure from how something is displayed.

Installation

yarn add intent-router

or 

npm install --save intent-router

Intent-router requires React-native-navigation and mobx , follow the installation for both

Usage

Intent-router is declarative and requires you to define all your routes before you start navigation.

The simplest intent-router file is this:

import React from 'react';
import {View,Text,Button} from 'react-native';
import {route,intent,INTENT_INIT,startApp,addMode} from 'intent-router'

export class HelloWorldScene extends React.Component {
   render(){
     const {next} = this.props;
     return <View>
       <Text>Hello World</Text>
       <Button title="next" onPress={next} />
     </View>
   }
 }
export class NextScene extends React.Component {
  render(){
    return <View>
      <Text>Next</Text>
    </View>
  }
}
//every app requires at least one mode, which defines the layout
addMode("SIMPLE",{ 

})
//a route describes an action
route({
  when:INTENT_INIT,
  mode:"SIMPLE",
  to:HelloWorldScene,
  props: ()=>({
    next:intent("ON_NEXT")
  })
});
route({
  when:"ON_NEXT",
  to:NextScene
});
startApp();


You can see a fuller example in the Example folder.

With Intent-router your ui components don't know where and how they are displayed. They receive actions from the container (in the example above HelloWorldScene gets the next action from it's props)

There are 3 concepts in Intent-router that you need to be familiar with:

  • Intent - an event that requires the router to handle it. In the above example that'll be INTENT_INIT and ON_NEXT
  • Route - a declaration of an action that needs to be taken when a certain intent happens. This is the meat of what Intent-router does
  • Mode - the layout of the app. Most apps have several layouts (for instance a simple page layout for login page and a tab layout for inner pages). Modes can be switched when routes are resolved.

intents

Intents are sent using the intent export from intent-router module.

They can be called directly, for example:

import {intent} from 'intent-router'

intent("NEXT")({});

But to preserve separation between ui and navigation, you should send it as a prop from the route

import React from 'react';
import {intent,route} from 'intent-router'

route({
  to:SomeScene,
  props: ()=>({
    next:intent("NEXT")
  })
})

class SomeScene {
  ...
  onPressButton(){
    const {next} = this.props;
    next({id:4,otherProp:"cool"})
  }
  render(){
    ...
  } 
    
}


As demonstrated in the previous example, aside from a name, intents can also send properties.

routes

Routes define transitions that happen when a certain intent occurs.

The simplest route is a route that directs to a scene when an intent of a certain type occurs.

route({
  when:"SOME-INTENT",
  to:SomeScene
})

All apps must have at least one simple route with the when as INTENT_INIT from intent-router.

A route can also define a transition only if an intent happens when a certain scene is in focus.

route({
  from:"FIRST-SCENE",
  when:"NEXT",
  to:"SECOND-SCENE"
})

Routes can pass properties to the scenes - by sending a function in props.

route({
  when:"SOME-INTENT",
  to:SomeScene,
  props:()=>({ //props does not receive any arguments
    someProp:"cool"
  })
})

Routes can have their scenes and props dynamically resolved:

route({
  when:"SOME-INTENT",
  resolve: (currentNavState,intent,params)=>{
    //do something with params, like getting information from a store
    const item = ItemStore.items[params.id];
    return {
      screen:SomeScene,
      props:()=>({
        item:item,
        id:params.id
      })
    }
  }
})

Modes

Modes are definitions of the apps layout - there are currently 2 supported layouts - single and tabbed.

A simple single screen layout can be defined like this:

import {addMode, route,INTENT_INIT} from 'intent-router';

addMode("basic",{
screen: {
  drawer: {
    // optional, add this if you want a side menu drawer in your app
    left: {
      screen: MenuScene, 
      disableOpenGesture: false, 
      fixedWidth: 500 
    }
  },
  animationType: 'slide-down' // optional, add transition animation to root change: 'none', 'slide-down', 'fade'

})

route({
  when:INTENT_INIT,
  mode:"basic",
  title:"welcome",
  to:WelcomeScene,
  navigatorStyle:{}  
})

Note that unlike in react-native-navigation, you don't need to define the screen inside the mode.

For tabbed based apps however, you must define initial scene for each tab:

import {addMode, route,INTENT_INIT} from 'intent-router';

addMode("my-tabbed-mode",{
screen: {
  tabs: [
    {
      screen:FirstTabScene,
      navigatorStyle:{},
      props:()=>({})
    },
    {
      screen:SecondTabScene,
      navigatorStyle:{},
      props:()=>({})
    }
  ],
  drawer: {
    // optional, add this if you want a side menu drawer in your app
    left: {
      screen: MenuScene, 
      disableOpenGesture: false, 
      fixedWidth: 500 
    }
  }
})

route({
  when:"LOGIN",
  mode:"my-tabbed-mode",
  to:FirstTabScene,
  navigatorStyle:{}  
})

mobx integration

When sending props to a scene, the prop function is observed using mobx. In a similar manner to render props.
That means that if the props function returns a property from a store, the scene will rerender when the property changes.

React-native-navigation integration

All properties in mode are sent to either startSingleScreenApp or startTabBasedApp - so you can send properties such as navigatorStyle.

If you want to use a component as a scene in intent-router you must register the screen via registerScreen from the intent-router module. However any component that is inside a to field of a route is automatically registered.
