1. Overview
  2. Testing
  3. Accessing the original component


A higher order component that can be used to connect a component deep within the component tree to its associated presenter. This is useful for requesting work from Presenters where passing down callbacks as props may otherwise be exhaustive.

import React from 'react'
import withSend from 'microcosm/addons/with-send'

const Button = withSend(function ({ send }) {
  return (
    <button onClick={() => send('hello-world')}>
      Say hello!
// within a Presenter:
intercept () {
  return {
    'hello-world': this.doSomething

doSomething (repo, params) {  }


withSend relies on the context setup by a Presenter. When testing, this isn’t always available. To work around this, Components wrapped in withSend can accept send as a prop:

import React from 'react'
import {mount} from 'enzyme'
import Button from 'prior-example'

describe('Button test', function () {

  it('it emits an action when clicked', function() {

    function assertion (action) {

    mount(<Button send={assertion}) />


Accessing the original component

The component returned from withSend(Component) includes a WrappedComponent property. You can use this to get access to the original component:

const Button = function ({ send }) {
  return (
    <button type="button" onClick={() => send('action')}>Click me</button>

const WrappedButton = withSend(Button)

WrappedButton.WrappedComponent // Button
