useAtomDevtools

useAtomDevtools is a React hook that manages ReduxDevTools integration for a particular atom.

function useAtomDevtools<Value>(anAtom: WritableAtom<Value, Value>, name?: string): void

The useAtomDevtools hook accepts a generic type parameter (mirroring the type stored in the atom). Additionally, the hook accepts two invocation parameters, anAtom and name. anAtom is the atom that will be attached to the devtools instance. name is an optional parameter that defines the debug label for the devtools instance. If name is undefined, atom.debugLabel will be used instead.

Example

import { useAtomDevtools } from 'jotai/devtools'

// The interface for the type stored in the atom.
export interface Task {
  label: string
  complete: boolean
}

// The atom to debug.
export const tasksAtom = atom<Task[]>([])

// If the useAtomDevtools name parameter is undefined, this value will be used instead.
tasksAtom.debugLabel = 'Tasks'

export const useTasksDevtools = () => {
  // The hook can be called simply by passing an atom for debugging.
  useAtomDevtools(tasksAtom)

  // Specify a custom type parameter
  useAtomDevtools<Task[]>(tasksAtom)

  // You can attach two devtools instances to the same atom and differentiate them with custom names.
  useAtomDevtools(tasksAtom, 'Tasks (Instance 1)')
  useAtomDevtools(tasksAtom, 'Tasks (Instance 2)')
}

useAtomsSnapshot

โš ๏ธ Note: This hook only works in a process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production' environment.

useAtomsSnapshot takes a snapshot of the currently mounted atoms and their state.

function useAtomsSnapshot(scope?: Scope): AtomsSnapshot

It accepts an atom scope parameter and will return an AtomsSnapshot, which is basically a Map<AnyAtom, unknown>. You can use the Map API to iterate over atoms and their state. This hook is primarily meant for debugging and devtools use cases.

Be careful using this hook because it will cause the component to re-render for all state changes.

Example

import { Provider } from 'jotai'
import { useAtomsSnapshot } from 'jotai/devtools'

const RegisteredAtoms = () => {
  const atoms = useAtomsSnapshot()

  return (
    <div>
      <p>Atom count: {atoms.size}</p>
      <div>
        {Array.from(atoms).map(([atom, atomValue]) => (
          <p key={`${atom}`}>{`${atom.debugLabel}: ${atomValue}`}</p>
        ))}
      </div>
    </div>
  )
}

const App = () => (
  <Provider>
    <RegisteredAtoms />
  </Provider>
)

useGotoAtomsSnapshot

โš ๏ธ Note: This hook only works in a process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production' environment.

useGotoAtomsSnapshot will update the current Jotai state to match the passed snapshot.

function useGotoAtomsSnapshot(
  scope?: Scope
): (values: Iterable<readonly [AnyAtom, unknown]>) => void

This hook returns a callback, which takes a snapshot from the useAtomsSnapshot hook and will update the Jotai state. It accepts an atom scope parameter and will error if the atoms have mixed scopes. This hook is primarily meant for debugging and devtools use cases.

Example

import { Provider } from 'jotai'
import { useAtomsSnapshot, useGotoAtomsSnapshot } from 'jotai/devtools'

const petAtom = atom('cat')
const colorAtom = atom('blue')

const UpdateSnapshot: React.FC = () => {
  const snapshot = useAtomsSnapshot()
  const goToSnapshot = useGotoAtomsSnapshot()
  return (
    <button
      onClick={() => {
        const newSnapshot = new Map(snapshot)
        newSnapshot.set(petAtom, 'dog')
        newSnapshot.set(colorAtom, 'green')
        goToSnapshot(newSnapshot)
      }}
    >
      Go to snapshot
    </button>
  )
}
