React to not update the DOM (Laravel)

advertisements

I have set up a basic react app with hash navigation. Problem is when I click on any link to navigate between pages, I see that the hash in the url is changing properly, as well as I added a console.log in my layour's render to see if it's getting called and it is, with proper this.props.children values, however the page is not rendering anything. If I go to any route and refresh the page I see the correct components rendered, but if I navigate somewhere from there noting gets rendered until I refresh again.

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import { IndexRoute, Router, Route, Link, hashHistory as history } from 'react-router';

class Layout extends React.Component {

  render() {
    console.log(this.props, document.location.hash);

    return <div>
      <div>
        <span>LEYAUTI MLEAYTI {Math.random()}</span>
      </div>
      <div>
        {this.props.children}
      </div>
      <div>
        {this.props.params.project}
      </div>
    </div>
  }
}

class CreateProject extends React.Component {

  render() {
    return <div>
      <h1>Create PROEKT</h1>
    </div>
  }
}

class Projects extends React.Component {

  render() {
    return <div>
      <h1>PROEKTI MROEKTI</h1>
      <Link to="/projects/create">New project</Link>
    </div>
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(
    <Router history={history}>
      <Route path="/" component={Layout}>
        <IndexRoute component={Projects}/>
        <Route path="projects/create" component={CreateProject}/>
      </Route>
    </Router>,
    document.getElementById('app-root'));

Here is a visual of what's happening in the console when I navigate on a couple routes, but the DOM remains unchanged


This may be an issue with hashHistory. Which react-router version are you using? With v4 and above, you need to use history like so -

import createHistory from 'history/createHashHistory'
const history = createHistory()
// pass history to the Router....
