Using the proposed React Hooks in ClojureScript



Yesterday at ReactConf, a proposal was introduced for a new React feature called “Hooks.” More info here:

I’m sure I’m not the only one that immediately realized how similar this was to the way reagent components are written :smile:. I personally am perfectly happy to try and get rid of reagent and use (as close to) raw React as possible, and these new features like async rendering, Suspense and (now) Hooks are painting a very bright future for that road.

I decided to whip up a quick demo of it being used in CLJS today:


Very nice demo, I like how simply your use-atom brings Clj(s) atom’s and power to React with just a few lines of code. Very nice way of having global state that’s viewed as local state.
