react-google-sheet-connector

Load data from a Google spreadsheet into your react components

Installation

npm install --save react-google-sheet-connector

Overview

Firstly the data must be initialized by using the <ReactGoogleSheetConnector> component. You then have the <GoogleSheet>, <GoogleRoute> and <GoogleTable> components at your disposal as well as the highly versatile connectToSpreadsheet helper.

Initialization

Initialise the data like so: You may use either apiKey or clientId. Please note that for data to be accessible using just the API Key the spreadsheet sharing must be set so that anyone with the link can view.

import ReactGoogleSheetConnector from "react-google-sheet-connector"

<ReactGoogleSheetConnector clientid={YOUR_CLIENT_ID}
    apiKey={YOUR_API_KEY}
    spreadsheetId={YOUR_SPREADSHEET_ID}
    spinner={ <div className="loading-spinner"/> } >
    <div>
        This content will be rendered once the data has been fetched from the spreadsheet.
    </div>
</ReactGoogleSheetConnector>

connectToSpreadsheet

The following example shows how to connect a component to the Spreadsheet. The component should be passed as an argument into the connectToSpreadsheet function included in this module.

import { connectToSpreadsheet } from "react-google-sheet-connector"

const MyComponent = (props) => {
    return (
        <div>
            {
                props.getSheet("Sheet Name")
                    .map((row, i) =>
                        JSON.stringify(row)
                    )
            }        
        </div>
    )
}

export default connectToSpreadsheet(MyComponent) 

This exposes the getSheet method to the component's props. getSheet takes one argument which is the name of the sheet and return an instance of SheetData.

SheetData

This is the object that is used to operate on and render data. SheetData contains methods to help you process and render the data. These methods are as follows:

filter

This method takes a single object as an argument. The keys should be the camel-case names of the column title and the values should be the respective values of those columns. For example, to get the rows where the "Item Category" column is equal to "Sports & Leisure":

.filter({itemCategory: "Sports & Leisure"})

This method returns the SheetsData instance for chaining.

group

This method accepts one argument which is the title of the column you wish to group the data by. When grouped the data is split into an array of objects containing name and values properties. The name is the value for that particular group and the values the corresponding rows. E.g.

.group("Item Category")

This method returns the SheetsData instance for chaining.

sort

This method accept one argument which is the title of the column you with to sort the data by. If your data has already been grouped then each group's values will be sorted by the specified column. E.g.

.sort("Item Category")

This method returns the SheetData instance for chaining.

reverse

This method reverses the data and returns the SheetData instance.

map

Use this as you would a regular array, once you have processed and are ready to render your data. Each row contains indexed values, as a regular array and also key-value pairs where the key is the column title converted to camelCase.

getData

This method returns an array of the original data rows from the sheet where each row contains indexed values and key-value pairs

getCurrentData

This method returns the data after other methods e.g. filter and group have been applied.

Method Chaining

Methods can be chained before finally rendering using .map. Here's an example:

props.getSheet("Sheet 1")
    .filter({inStock: "y"})
    .group("Product Type")
    .sort("Product Name")
    .reverse()
    .map((group, i) => 
        <div className="product-group" key={i}>
            <h2>{group.name}</h2>
            {
                group.values.map((row, j) =>
                    <div className="product-row" key={j}>
                )
            }
        </div>    
    )

Components

GoogleSheet

The <GoogleSheet> component injects data from the given sheet into the component specified as its child prop. You may also specify filter, group and sort props which work as described above.

import { GoogleSheet } from "react-google-sheet-connector"

<GoogleSheet child={ChildComponent} sheetName="My Sheet" filter={{key: "Value"}} group="Column Title" sort="Column to Sort">

GoogleRoute

This component should be used as the component prop in a React Router <Route> component. By setting additional props on the component data will be passed from the specified sheet into the child component. In the example below data from the "Sheet 1" sheet will be passed into the props of <ChildComponent>. You may also use the filter, group and sort props as described above.

import { GoogleRoute } from "react-google-sheet-connector"

<Route path="/mypath" component={GoogleRoute} child={ChildComponent} sheetName="Sheet 1" />

GoogleTable

This component renders a sheet from your Spreadsheet into an HTML table. As well as the props in the example below you may also assign id and className attributes to the component as well as filter as per the GoogleSheet example.

import { GoogleTable } from "react-google-sheet-connector"

<GoogleTable sheetName="Sheet 1" />
