Configuration

bruit-io Web Component has a config attribute, which takes a value of BrtConfig type.

BrtConfig

Describes the options for the bruit-io component

interface BrtConfig {
  apiKey?: string;
  form: Array<BrtField>;
  labels?: BrtLabels;
  colors?: BrtColors;
  closeModalOnSubmit?: boolean;
  apiUrl?: string;
  durationBeforeClosing?: number;
  elementToRenderSelector?: string;
  screenshot?: {
    maxWidth?: number,
    maxHeight?: number,
    imageType?: string,
    compression?: number
  }
}
Attribute Type Description Mandatory Default value
apiKey string your personal api key (create an api key) no -
form array<BrtField> inputs list for the generated form yes -

Typescript import :

import { BrtConfig } from '@bruit/component';

BrtField

Describes both the fields displayed in the popup form and the users' answers.

interface BrtField {
  id?: string;
  label: string;
  type: BrtFieldType;
  required?: boolean;
  value?: any;
  max?: number;
}
Attribute Type Description Mandatory
id string Unique identifier for the field no
label string Placeholder / label for the field yes
type BrtFieldType The input type of the field yes
required boolean true to make the field required to send the feedback no
value any The value typed by the user no
max number max number for rating type no

BrtConfig.form must contain one BrtField with id="agreement" and type="checkbox", used to check whether personal data should be sent with the feedback.

There are special values for the id attribute:

  • agreement: sets the field to use to check whether user agrees to send his personal data
  • title: sets the field used to display the title of feedback

Typescript import:

import { BrtField } from '@bruit/component';

BrtLabels

Used to describe the texts displayed in the modal.

interface BrtLabels {
  title?: string;
  introduction?: string;
  button?: string;
}
Attribute Description Default value
title Defines the title of the modal bruit.io
introduction Defines the description text send a feedback
button Defines the text of the submit button send

Typescript import:

import { BrtLabels } from '@bruit/component';

BrtColors

If you feel like an artist 🎨 , you may use BrtColors to change the theme of the modal.

This gives the possiblity to change the header, body, background, errors and focus colors.

Only hexadecimal values are allowed here.

interface BrtColors {
  header?: string;
  body?: string;
  background?: string;
  errors?: string;
  focus?: string;
}
Attribute Description Default value
header the modal's header color #2D8297
body the color for the background of the modal #eee
background the color used to dim what's behind the modal #444444ee
errors the text color to use for errors #c31313
focus the color to use on focused field #1f5a6

Typescript import:

import { BrtColors } from '@bruit/component';

BrtFeedback

By default, bruit.io component posts a feedback to bruit.io API (https://api.bruit.io/feedback).

If you wish, it can be connected with your own API.

To do it, you must provide a API endpoint, to be passed to BrtConfig as apiUrl.

bruit.io component posts a BrtFeedback to your API endpoint.

interface BrtFeedback {
  apiKey?: string;
  canvas?: string;
  url?: string;
  cookies?: BrtCookies;
  navigator?: BrtNavigatorInfo;
  display?: BrtScreenInfo;
  logs?: Array<BrtLog>;
  data: Array<BrtData>;
}

Typescript import:

import { BrtFeedback } from '@bruit/types';

Add data to the feedback

It is possible to automatically had technical data in the feedback, for example the version number of your application, the identifier of the user sending the feedback, etc.

This is done by using either the brt-data or brt-data-fn property on the component.

data

brt-data property is used to send an array of objects to add to the feedback to the component.

The property takes a BrtData array as a value.

dataFn

brt-data-fn property takes a function as a value. The function should return either an array of BrtData or a promise of an array of BrtData.

BrtData

Used to pass additional data to the feedback (ie the application version number)

interface BrtData {
  label: string;
  type?: string;
  value: any;
  id?: string;
}
Attribute Type Description Mandatory
label string a label for the data yes
type string the type of the data no
value any the value to send yes
id string an identifier for the data no

Typescript import:

import { BrtData } from '@bruit/component';

Handle errors

event

bruit-io emits onError events when an error occurs.

An error is of type BrtError, composed by a code and a text.

more information about errors

BrtError

Format of the errors which may be sent by the component.

interface BrtError {
  code: number;
  text: string;
}

Typescript import:

import { BrtError } from '@bruit/component';

Framework integrations

JavaScript

Integrating bruit-io component to a project without a JavaScript framework is pretty straight forward. When using a simple HTML page, bruit.io can be added from a CDN as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <script type="module" src="https://unpkg.com/@bruit/component/dist/bruit/bruit.esm.js"></script>
    <script nomodule src="https://unpkg.com/@bruit/component/dist/bruit/bruit.js"></script>
  </head>
  ...
</html>

Then, you may add the bruit-io component directly:

<body>
  <bruit-io></bruit-io>
  ...
  <script>
    var bruitCmp = document.querySelector('bruit-io');

    bruitCmp.config = {
      // whatever your config is
    };
  </script>
</body>

Angular

Using bruit-io component within an Angular project is a two-step process. You need to:

  1. Include the CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA in the modules that use the components
  2. Call defineCustomElements() from main.ts (or some other appropriate place)

Including the Custom Elements Schema

Including the CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA in the module allows the use of Web Components in the HTML files. Here is an example of adding it to AppModule:

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA, NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [BrowserModule],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
  schemas: [CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA]
})
export class AppModule {}

The CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA needs to be included in any module that uses bruit.io.

Calling defineCustomElements

bruit.io component includes a function used to load itself in the application window object. That function is called defineCustomElements() and needs to be executed once during the bootstrapping of your application. One convenient place to add it is in the main.ts file as follows:

import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';

import { AppModule } from './app/app.module';
import { environment } from './environments/environment';

import { applyPolyfills, defineCustomElements } from '@bruit/component/loader';

if (environment.production) {
  enableProdMode();
}

platformBrowserDynamic()
  .bootstrapModule(AppModule)
  .catch(err => console.log(err));
applyPolyfills().then(() => {
  defineCustomElements(window)
})

Using bruit.io in an Angular component

<bruit-io
  [brt-config]="bruitConfig"
  [brt-data]="bruitData"
  [brt-dataFn]="bruitDataPromise()"
  (brt-onError)="handleBruitError($event)"
></bruit-io>
public bruitConfig: BrtConfig = {
  apiKey:"xxxxxxxxxxx",
  form:[...]
};

public bruitData: Array<BrtData> = [
  {
    label:"version",
    value: environment.version
  }
];

constructor(private api : ApiService){}

bruitDataPromise(): Promise<Array<BrtData>>{
  return this.api.getUser().then( user =>
    [
      {
        label: "user id",
        value: user.id
      },
      {
        label: "user email",
        value: user.email
      }
    ]
  );
}

handleBruitError(error: BrtError){
  ...
}

React

With an application built using React CLI (namely create-react-app), the easiest way is to include the bruit-io component by calling the defineCustomElements() method in the index.js file.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import './index.css';
import App from './App';
import registerServiceWorker from './registerServiceWorker';

import { applyPolyfills, defineCustomElements } from '@bruit/component/loader';

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));
registerServiceWorker();
applyPolyfills().then(() => {
  defineCustomElements(window);
});

from stencil documentation

Vue

In order to use the bruit-io Web Component inside of a Vue application, it should be modified to define the custom elements and to inform the Vue compiler which elements to ignore during compilation. This can all be done within the main.js file as follows:

import Vue from 'vue';
import App from './App.vue';
import { applyPolyfills, defineCustomElements } from '@bruit/component/loader';

Vue.config.productionTip = false;
Vue.config.ignoredElements = [/bruit-\w*/];

applyPolyfills().then(() => {
  defineCustomElements(window);
});

new Vue({
  render: h => h(App)
}).$mount('#app');
