useScript react Code Snippet in 2022


Last Updated: 25 September 2022

Dynamically loads an external script.

  • Use the useState() hook to create a state variable for the load status of the script.
  • Use the useEffect() hook to handle all the logic for loading and unloading the script anytime the src changes.
  • If no src value is present, set the status to 'idle' and return.
  • Use Document.querySelector() to check if a <script> element with the appropriate src value exists.
  • If no relevant element exists, use Document.createElement() to create one and give it the appropriate attributes.
  • Use the data-status attribute as a way to indicate the status of the script, setting it to 'loading' initially.
  • If a relevant element exists, skip initialization and update the status from its data-status attribute. This ensures that no duplicate element will be created.
  • Use EventTarget.addEventListener() to listen for 'load' and 'error' events and handle them by updating the data-status attribute and the status state variable.
  • Finally, when the component unmounts, use Document.removeEventListener() to remove any listeners bound to the element.
const useScript = src => { const [status, setStatus] = React.useState(src ? 'loading' : 'idle'); React.useEffect(() => { if (!src) { setStatus('idle'); return; } let script = document.querySelector(`script[src="${src}"]`); if (!script) { script = document.createElement('script'); script.src = src; script.async = true; script.setAttribute('data-status', 'loading'); document.body.appendChild(script); const setDataStatus = event => { script.setAttribute( 'data-status', event.type === 'load' ? 'ready' : 'error' ); }; script.addEventListener('load', setDataStatus); script.addEventListener('error', setDataStatus); } else { setStatus(script.getAttribute('data-status')); } const setStateStatus = event => { setStatus(event.type === 'load' ? 'ready' : 'error'); }; script.addEventListener('load', setStateStatus); script.addEventListener('error', setStateStatus); return () => { if (script) { script.removeEventListener('load', setStateStatus); script.removeEventListener('error', setStateStatus); } }; }, [src]); return status; };
const script = 'data:text/plain;charset=utf-8;base64,KGZ1bmN0aW9uKCl7IGNvbnNvbGUubG9nKCdIZWxsbycpIH0pKCk7'; const Child = () => { const status = useScript(script); return <p>Child status: {status}</p>; }; const MyApp = () => { const status = useScript(script); return ( <> <p>Parent status: {status}</p> <Child /> </> ); }; ReactDOM.render(<MyApp />, document.getElementById('root'));
