Tydel can already work with React.js applications with ease.

See tydel-react for more info.


First we need to install tydel-react:

$ npm install --save tydel-react

State model

Let’s assume we have our App’s state in a root model called AppState, and it may look like this:

// ./models/AppState.js

import { Types, createModel } from 'tydel';

import Todos from '../collections/Todos';

export createModel({
  name: Types.string.isRequired,
  todos: Types.collection.of(Todos)

Root component

Now we need to make sure that we pass the instace of our AppState model, to the root React component of our application.

We can do this via the <Provider> component exposed by tydel-react:

// ./index.js

import { render } from 'react-dom';
import { Provider } from 'tydel-react';

import App from './containers/App.js'; // Root component
import AppState from './models/AppState'; // Root model

const appState = new AppState({
  name: 'My App Name',
  todos: []

  <Provider model={appState}>
    <App />

Accessing model

To access the state model from the rest of your application, you can use connect() provided by tydel-react.

// ./containers/App.js

import { Component } from 'react';

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    const { name } = this.props;

    return (
        My app name is: {name}

export default connect(function (appState) {
  return {

connect() basically accepts a function, which receives the appState, and then returns an object which is then mapped as props inside your Component.

If you mutate the root model, the bindings will make sure your Components are re-rendered automatically.
