Intro to RecksJS
Official docs: recks.gitbook.io
RecksJS is a framework based on streams
import Recks from 'recks';
import { timer } from 'rxjs';
function App() {
const ticks$ = timer(0, 1000);
return <div>
<h1>{ ticks$ }</h1>
<p>seconds passed</p>
</div>
}

⚠️ RecksJS is currently in beta

Observables are first class citizens in Recks ❤️
function App() {
return <div>{ timer(0, 1000) }</div>
}
You can also do other way around: map a stream on JSX
function App() {
return timer(0, 1000).pipe(
map(x => <div>{ x }</div>)
);
}
Recks will subscribe to and unsubscribe from provided streams automatically, you don't have to worry about that!
And you can use Promises that will display the result, once resolved:
function App() {
const result = axios.get(url).then(r => r.data);
return <div>
{ result }
</div>
}

Just a basic, no "moving parts"
import Recks from 'recks';
function App() {
return <h1>Hello world!</h1>
}

RxJS' timer here will emit an integer every second, updating the view
import Recks from 'recks';
import { timer } from 'rxjs';
function App() {
const ticks$ = timer(0, 1000);
return <div>
<h1>{ ticks$ }</h1>
<p>seconds passed</p>
</div>
}

Uses a simple Subject to store local component state:
import Recks from 'recks';
import { Subject } from 'rxjs';
import { map, startWith } from 'rxjs/operators';
function App() {
const name$ = new Subject();
const view$ = name$.pipe(
map(x => x ? `Hello, ${x}!` : ''),
startWith('')
);
return <div>
<input
placeholder="enter your name"
onInput={e => name$.next(e.target.value)}
/>
{ view$ }
</div>
}

Traditional counter example with a Subject:
import Recks from 'recks';
import { Subject } from 'rxjs';
import { scan, startWith } from 'rxjs/operators';
function App() {
const input$ = new Subject();
const view$ = input$.pipe(
startWith(0),
scan((acc, curr) => acc + curr)
);
return <div>
<button onClick={ ()=>input$.next(-1) }>
minus
</button>
{ view$ }
<button onClick={ ()=>input$.next( 1) }>
plus
</button>
</div>
}
