Well, maybe I’m exagerating a little bit. But for real, reactive variable are such a good feature I don’t know how other frameworks haven’t copied it to it’s full extent yet.
They work like this, you declare a variable and if the variable changes it triggers another variable to change it’s value if it’s related to the initial variable.
You can see a similar example in the docs . But what this basically does, is that every time we change the value of the input it would change the double variable to be times 2 the a variable.
And you could do lots of things with it.
Changing the document title.
And even calling functions. For this I have the perfect example, making an svg triangle with the sides being reactive. And also using the reactive variables feature to get the hypotenuse with a neat one liner
Thanks for reading. If you’ve got any other example of how reactive variables could be used feel free to let me know :))
