Using React ErrorBoundary with HOCs

// withErrorBoundary.js

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import PropTypes from 'prop-types'

class ErrorBoundary extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props)
    this.state = { hasError: false }
  }

  componentDidCatch(error, info) {
    this.setState({ hasError: true })
    console.group('componentDidCatch')
    console.error(error)
    console.info(info)
    console.groupEnd('componentDidCatch')
  }

  render() {
    if (this.state.hasError) {
      return <h1>An Error Occurred 😢</h1>
    }
    return this.props.children
  }
}


export default Component => props => (
  <ErrorBoundary>
    <Component {...props} />
  </ErrorBoundary>
)

Easy to Use with ES7 decorator... @withErrorBoundary

// App.js

import withErrorBoundary from './withErrorBoundary.js'

@withErrorBoundary
export default class App extends Component {

  simulateError = () => {
    throw new Error('Sample Error')
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <h1 onClick={this.simulateError}>Hello World</h1>
      </div>
    )
  }
}

Registered on this resource just to say thank you!

I've modified your example so decorator would accept options like this
@withErrorBoundary({ componentName: ' . . . ' })
and we could handle errors in uglified/minified production build

For anyone wondering - the wrapper will look like this

export default options => Component => props => {
  return (
    <ErrorBoundary options={ options }>
      <Component { ...props } />
    </ErrorBoundary>
  );
};

Then ErrorBoundary component will receive options object as a prop (obviously)

Thanks for sharing!
