PubNub EON, Real-time Dashboard Framework in React

1 min read Syed Ahmed on Jun 18, 2018

We’re pleased to announce our new component library for EON that makes it even easier to start integrating PubNub with

into your React app! With this library you can do things like:

Currently, we’re providing support for charts, with the goal to add maps down the line. The component library is completely open source, so contributing is encouraged. Head over to the GitHub to add on.

So How Does It Work?

The implementation is actually very simple. We need three main things.

  1. A PubNub Instance which is subscribed and listening to a channel
  2. EON-React Library
  3. Chart component

The library takes care of all the heavy lifting for you to show the chart a component.

If you need example code snippets you can check it out over here.

Let’s Get Coding: A Quick Example

You’ll first have to sign up for a PubNub account to get your unique pub/sub keys.

Then, create a basic skeleton

npx create-react-app Eon-React-Demo

Get the required libraries.

import PubNubReact from 'pubnub-react';
import Chart from 'eon-react';

Initialize our PubNub object.

this.pubnub  =  new PubNubReact({
      subscribeKey:  'demo' // Your sub key

Create our react component.

render() {
    return ( 
        channels={['eon-components']} /** Enter your channel name **/
        type='area-line' />
