npm i -S react-vfx


REACT-VFX exports VFXSpan, VFXImg and VFXVideo. These components works just like <span>, <img> and <video> - accepts all properties they have, but they are rendered in WebGL world with shader effects!

import * as VFX from 'react-vfx';

export default () => (
        {/* Render text as image, then apply the shader effect! */}
        <VFX.VFXSpan shader="rainbow">Hi there!</VFX.VFXSpan>

        {/* Render image with shader */}
        <VFX.VFXImg src="cat.png" alt="image" shader="rgbShift"/>

        {/* It also supports animated GIFs! */}
        <VFX.VFXImg src="doge.gif" shader="pixelate"/>

        {/* and videos! */}
        <VFX.VFXVideo src="mind_blown.mp4"
            autoplay playsinline loop muted

NOTE: VFXSpan doesn't work if the content includes child nodes.

// OK
<a href="https://example.com"><VFXSpan>Yo</VFXSpan></a>

// NG: link styles are not rendered correctly
<VFXSpan><a href="https://example.com">Yo</a></VFXSpan>

Custom Shader

import { VFXSpan } from 'react-vfx';

const blink = `
uniform vec2 resolution;
uniform vec2 offset;
uniform float time;
uniform sampler2D src;

void main() {
    vec2 uv = (gl_FragCoord.xy - offset) / resolution;
    gl_FragColor = texture2D(src, uv) * step(.5, fract(time));

export default = () => (
    <VFXSpan shader={blink}></VFXSpan>

Future work

  • Passing custom uniforms
  • Passing custom textures

Routing in React without React-Router

I have been using React JS in my projects for quite some time now and am used to managing routing in my app using the react-router package. I have always been keen on having as little dependencies in my apps as possible, so, I always felt perturbed by the use of this particular package in simpler apps which did not have complex routes.

Forms of Composition in JavaScript and React

One of the core ideas in functional programming is composition: building larger things from smaller things. The canonical example of this idea should be familiar with legos.
