How to Use MingleJS: Bring Vue/React Component to Livewire/Filament

The world of web development offers a rich tapestry of JavaScript frameworks, each with its own strengths and quirks. This diversity, while empowering, can lead to dilemmas when choosing the best tool for specific components within a project. Enter MingleJS, a library that seamlessly integrates Vue and React components into Livewire or Filament applications. Developed by Joao Patricio, MingleJS is a boon for developers working with landing pages or complex components that demand the unique capabilities of Vue or React. It also provides a bridge for gradual adoption of Livewire and facilitates the utilization of third-party components from the vast Vue and React ecosystems.

Under the Hood: How MingleJS Operates

MingleJS employs a server-side rendering approach, followed by client-side component mounting. Livewire components on the server render each JS component, resulting in isolated JavaScript interactivity on the front-end, encapsulated within the Livewire component. This mechanism allows the backend to transmit data seamlessly to the front-end components.

Illustrating MingleJS in Action

Let's dive into a practical example showcasing the implementation of MingleJS within a Livewire component:

namespace App\Livewire;

use Ijpatricio\Mingle\Concerns\InteractsWithMingles;

use Ijpatricio\Mingle\Contracts\HasMingles;

use Livewire\Component;

class ChatApp extends Component implements HasMingles


use InteractsWithMingles;

public function component(): string


    return 'resources/js/ChatApp/index.js';


public function mingleData()


    return [

        'message' => 'Message in a bottle 🍾',



// ...


A Mingle component comprises three core elements:

A Livewire component incorporating the InteractsWithMingles trait.

A JavaScript file serving as the "glue" between Livewire and the front-end component.

The front-end component file itself.

Below is an example of a Mingle component utilizing React:

// resources/js/ChatApp/index.js

import mingle from '@mingle/mingleReact'

import ChatApp from './ChatApp.jsx'

mingle('resources/js/ChatApp/index.js', ChatApp)

// resources/js/ChatApp/ChatApp.jsx

import React from 'react'

function ChatApp({wire, …props}) {

const message = props.mingleData.message

console.log(message) // 'Message in a bottle 🍾'


    .then(data => {

        console.log(data) // 4


return (

{/* */}
) }
