react-md 2.4.0

10/17/2020 (291 days ago)

react-md 2.3.1

09/14/2020 (324 days ago)

I released v1.18.0 today but didn't realize that npm uses --tag while lerna uses --dist-tag so v1.18.0 was released under latest instead of previous. This release is only to ensure that v2 is set to latest and has no other changes.

react-md 2.3.0

09/10/2020 (328 days ago)

This release is kind of a breaking change since the base react-md package no longer has a dist/css folder for all the pre-compiled themes due to CDNs and package managers rejecting this package for being too big. All the pre-compiled themes will now be available through jsDelivr instead. Check out the CDN Links for more info.

This release also changed the ResizeObserver to use a subscription model to slightly increase performance when multiple ResizeObservers are used on a single page as well as fix some errors related to the ResizeObserver loop has been exceeded. The useResizeObserver has been updated to use the new API which requires refs, but is still backwards compatible. Due to this change, the ResizeObserver component has been deprecated in favor of the useResizeObserver hook implementation.

Otherwise, there were a few new features added to the @react-md/button, @react-md/progress, and @react-md/tree packages that you can reference below.

Documentation
  • created a new example for the @react-md/form package to show how to use react-hook-form with react-md for form validation. Check out the new example here.

curl https://codeload.github.com/mlaursen/react-md/tar.gz/main | tar -xz --strip=2 react-md-main/examples/EXAMPLE_NAME
cd EXAMPLE_NAME
