Data Driven Form logo

Data Driven Forms is a React library used for rendering and managing forms with a lot of provided features based on React Final Form.

:question: Why to use Data Driven Forms? :question:

  • All forms shared the same functionality!
  • Components are controlled in one place!
  • You can easily migrate to different sets of components!
  • All functionality is provided (see below!)

:tada: Features :tada:

  • Easily readable schema, you don't need to know any HTML or JS to be able to write your own form schemas!
  • You can use your own components or use one of our provided mappers (PatternFly 3, PatternFly 4 or Material-UI!)
  • Form state managing out-of-the-box (including error states!)
  • Fully customizable (you can use your own buttons, actions, etc.)!
  • Conditional fields!
  • Custom field validation with basic set included!
  • Datatype validation!
  • Cross-field validation!
  • Asynchronous validation supported!
  • Supporting Wizard forms!
  • Supporting Final Form Field Array!
  • ... and a lot more!

Installation

Add React Form Renderer

React Form Renderer

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer

Optionally you can install one of provided mappers:

Material-UI Mapper

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/mui-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/mui-component-mapper

PatternFly 3 Mapper

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/pf3-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/pf3-component-mapper

PatternFly 4 Mapper

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/pf4-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/pf4-component-mapper

BlueprintJS Mapper

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/blueprint-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/blueprint-component-mapper

Semantic UI Mapper

$ npm install @data-driven-forms/suir-component-mapper -S
$ yarn add @data-driven-forms/suir-component-mapper

Component libraries in mappers are external dependencies. Make sure to install them in your bundles.

Usage

In order to Data Driven Forms in your component you need the renderer and a component mapper, which provides component mapper and form template.

import React from 'react';
import FormRenderer, { componentTypes } from '@data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer';
import { componentMapper, FormTemplate } from '@data-driven-forms/pf4-component-mapper';

const schema = {
  fields: [{
    component: componentTypes.TEXT_FIELD,
    name: 'name',
    label: 'Your name'
  }]
}

const Form = () => (
  <FormRenderer
    schema={schema}
    componentMapper={componentMapper}
    FormTemplate={FormTemplate}
    onSubmit={console.log}
  />
)

Custom mapper

You can also use custom mapper.

import React from 'react';
import FormRenderer, { componentTypes, useFieldApi } from '@data-driven-forms/react-form-renderer';

const TextField = props => {
  const {label, input, meta, ...rest} = useFieldApi(props)
  return (
    <div>
      <label htmlForm={input.name}>{label}</label>
      <input {...input} {...rest} id={input.name}/>
      {meta.error && <p>{meta.error}</p>}
    </div>
  )
}

const componentMapper = {
  [componentTypes.TEXT_FIELD]: TextField,
  'custom-type': TextField
}

const schema = {
  fields: [{
    component: componentTypes.TEXT_FIELD,
    name: 'name',
    label: 'Your name'
    type: 'search',
  }]
}

For more information, please check this page.

Mappers can be also generated by using yarn generate-template command.

Documentation

Please use our documentation site. In case of any problem, you can access documentation files directly in GitHub.

Development setup

Data Driven Forms is a monorepo which uses Lerna, so you can use all its commands as well.

  1. Install
yarn install
  1. Build
yarn build
  1. Run a package

Each package has a small playground package/demo, where you can test your changes.

cd packages/pf3-component-mapper
yarn start
  1. How to clean?
rm yarn.lock
yarn lerna clean # will delete all node_modules

All packages are linked together by default, so if you run a yarn build in a package, all other packages are updated to the latest version of that package.

Tests

Tests needed to be run from the core folder.

yarn test

yarn test packages/pf3-component-mapper

Commits

Data Driven Forms uses Semantic Release

Format:

[type]([package]): message

fix(pf3): title accepts node

Types:

  • feat: a new feature, will trigger new _.X._ release
  • fix: a fix, will trigger new _._.X release

Packages:

  • Please describe which package is being changed pf3, renderer, ...

Please, do not use Semantic Release, if you update only the demo.

All packages are releasing together and they share the version number.

Changes to documentation

If your changes influence API or add new features, you should describe these new options in the demo repository. Thanks!
