140. Virtual DOM III - Functional Component

JavaScript
Is this helpful ?

This is a follow-up on 118. Virtual DOM II - createElement.

In problem 118, you are asked to implement createElement() and render() function which supports intrinsic HTML elements, like <p/>, <div/> etc.

In this problem, you are ask to support custom Functional Component.

Functional Component are functions that:

  1. accept single object argument -props, which contains children, className and other properties.
  2. returns an MyElement by calling createElement().

Say we have a Functional Component - Title

const h = createElement
const Title = ({children, ...res}) => h('h1', res, ...children)

Then we should be able to use it in createElement and render(), just the same way as an intrinsic element.

h(Title, {}, 'This is a title')

h(Title, {className: 'class1'}, 'This is a title')

Please modify your createElement() and render() from 118. Virtual DOM II - createElement if necessary, so that the example in problem 118 could be rewritten as below:

const Link = 
  ({children, ...res}) => h('a', res, ...children)
const Name = 
  ({children, ...res}) => h('b', res, ...children)
const Button = 
  ({children, ...res}) => h('button', res, ...children)
const Paragraph = 
  ({children, ...res}) => h('p', res, ...children)
const Container =  
  ({children, ...res}) => h('div', res, ...children)

h(
  Container,
  {},
  h(Title, {}, ' this is '),
  h(
    Paragraph,
    { className: 'paragraph' },
    ' a ',
    h(Button, {}, ' button '),
    ' from ',
    h(
      Link, 
      { href: 'https://bfe.dev' }, 
      h(Name, {}, 'BFE'), 
      '.dev')
  )
)
