Simple-schema & redux-form or yup or formsy or formal for react

Anyone have recommendation on simple-schema forms and form validation?

I’m considering using yup & react-formal…
or maybe formsy & formsy-react-components…

translating the simple-schema into a the other desired format/schema, and using “reacty” tools.

Anyone have experience with these tools? Want to suggest alternatives? Want to suggest approaches? Want to collaborate on the approach?

I’m also curious to see what other people use for forms with react and simple schema.

Ok - I have not found a solution yet, so I started to make my own… this really could become a janky react autoform alternative… right now it’s just a draft, but it is rendering a formsy form with the basics from a simple-schema schema…

Still a lot to do. See the README for basic roadmap. Collaborators and PRs requested!!!

Also in search of a good solution. Found redux-form. Will try it in the coming days.
If you use redux. Then this could be good. Also taking a look at your repo. Seems cool.


Yep - I’m also hacking away at it and JUST finally got things working well…

Here’s a npm to convert simple-schema into a validate function for redux-form

And here’s a gist of Container > Page > ReduxForm(Component)

Note: the handlers are tricky and took a while to get right (for me), see comments in gist.

Here is a new React forms package build using simple-schema.


@skirunman that looks very promising. I’m making a bootstrap4 UI version version to play with it. I could use a little help making my FormField wrapper work though… can you help me out a bit? (zeroasterisk on G+Hangout)

@zeroasterisk I’m not the developer. Looks like you have opened a couple of issues with Vazco so I’m sure they will get back to you on github.

Just an update, while housecleaning…

I did indeed adopt uniforms and have been super-happy. It’s very robust at this point and versatile, no meteor/redux/mobx lockin, but integrable with all of those, and the right amount of automagic & customization.
