⚙️ Installation

You can quickly integrate the Yew Custom Reusable Input Component into your Yew project by following these simple steps:

  1. First, make sure you have Yew set up in your project. If not, check out the Yew documentation for installation instructions.

  2. Then, install the input component package using your preferred package manager:

    $ cargo add input_yew
  3. Finally, import the component into your Yew application and start using it to power up your forms and user interactions.

🛠️ Usage

Using this custom reusable input component is a breeze! Simply follow these steps:

  1. Import the component into your Yew application:

    // Add these lines at the beginning of your file, make sure you have `regex` installed for input validation. 
    use yew::prelude::*;
    use regex::Regex;
    use input_yew::CustomInput;
  2. Use the CustomInput component wherever you need an input field:

    fn validate_email(email: String) -> bool {
        let pattern = Regex::new(r"^[^ ]+@[^ ]+\.[a-z]{2,3}$").unwrap();
    pub fn login_form() -> Html {
        let input_email_ref = use_node_ref();
        let input_email_handle = use_state(String::default);
        let email_valid_handle = use_state(|| true);
        let onsubmit = Callback::from(move |event: SubmitEvent| {};
        html! {
              <form action="#" aria-label="Sign In Form" onsubmit={onsubmit}>
                    icon_class={"fas fa-user"}
                    icon={"fas fa-user"}
                    error_message={"Enter a valid email address"}
  3. Customize the input component's appearance and behavior according to your project requirements.
