Dominic

Helper to quickly build up dom in javascript object format

  • v.0.1.42 contains breaking changes. See changelog

Basic feature list:

And here's some code! :+1:

Basic 1:

var root = Dominic.create({
    cls: 'root', // or className: 'root' | cls as alias for className
    parent: document.body,
    width: 300,
    height: 300,
    background: 'darkgreen',
    items: [ // or: children
        // also accept string, number as children, will be converted to text node
        { tag: 'div', width: 50, height: 50, text: 'Intro', display: 'inline-block', background: 'yellowgreen' },
        { tag: 'div', width: 200, background: 'lightgreen',
            items: [
                { tag: 'div', width: 20, height: 20, background: 'red' },
                { tag: 'div', width: 20, height: 20, background: 'orange' },
            ],
            created: function(el, root) {
                // el: the div element with background: 'lightgreen' and 2 children 'red' & 'orange'
                // root: the root elemnt directly created by Dominic.create
                // this: = root element
            }
        }
    ],
    created: function (el, root) {
        // called when finished every setup
    },
    appended: function () {
        // called when
        // 1. element is root (created by Dominic.create)
        // 2. parent is Node and appended element successfully
    }
})
Result

alt tag

Styling
  • color, backgroundColor, background, display, position, border, transform, opacity, fontSize will be applied directly to element style without the need of putting them in a style object. Same with:
  • width, height, minHeight, maxHeight, minWidth, maxWidth
  • margin, padding, margin and padding + (Top - Left - Right - Bottom) will be converted to proper CSS value if value is number

Basic 2: Function as item & div all the elements

  • Tag name is 'div' by default
var outerScopeDataSource = [
    { name: 'yellow' },
    { name: 'green' },
    { name: 'pink' }
]
var root = Dominic.create({
    cls: 'root',
    parent: document.body,
    width: 300,
    height: 300,
    background: 'darkgreen',
    items: [
        { width: 50, height: 50, text: 'Intro', display: 'inline-block', background: 'yellowgreen',
            items: [
                function () {
                    return outerScopeDataSource.map(function (data) {
                        return { tag: 'custom-el', text: data.name }
                    })
                }
            ]
        },
        { width: 200, background: 'lightgreen',
            items: ['color', 'material'].map(function (val) {
                return { text: val }
            })
        }
    ]
})

Basic 3a: Share configs

var root = Dominic.create({
    cls: 'root',
    parent: document.body,
    width: '100%',
    height: '100%',
    defaults: {
        display: 'inline-block',
        height: '100%',
        cls: 'default-class',
        style: {
            verticalAlign: 'top'
        }
    },
    items: [
        { cls: 'sidebar', width: 200, ref: 'sidebar', background: 'lightgreen' },
        { cls: 'main', width: 'calc(100% - 200px)', ref: 'main', background: 'lightblue',
            defaults: {
                background: 'tomato',
                margin: 5,
                height: 50,
                width: 50,
                display: 'inline-block'
            },
            items: [
                { text: 1 },
                { text: 2 },
                [3,4,5,6].map(function (v) { return { text: v } }),
                function () {
                    return [5,6,7,8].map(function (v) { return { text: v } })
                }
            ]
        },
        { tag: 'test' }
    ]
})
  • All direct children of root will have display = 'inline-block', height = '100%'
  • Only last child of root will have class = 'default-class'

All template functions

  • Only work when template data is array
  • Now support multiple templates observing same property
  • APIs:
    1. push (now real push, was previously reset)
    2. insert
    3. remove
    4. pop
    5. shift
    6. unshift
  • Example:
    /**
     * @param observeProperty {string}
     * @param data {any}
     */
    root.observe.push(observeProperty, data)
    /**
     * If index is absent, insert at the end, same behavior with push
     * @param index? {int}
     */
    root.observe.insert(observeProperty, index, data)
    /**
     * @param indexes {int[] | int}
     */
    root.observe.remove(observeProperty, indexes)
    /**
     * These following methods have same behavior like in an array
     */
    root.observe.pop(observeProperty)
    root.observe.shift(observeProperty)
    root.observe.unshift(observeProperty, data)

Motivation

Prototyping some design and testing event/ interaction made a bit more convinient when

  • No dependencies & everything in javascript
  • There are Events & reference & template supports

Installation

<script src="dominic.min.js"></script>
npm i dominic

API

  1. Create new DOM element
/**
 * @param defs {Object} opts options for root element, className, id, children etc... 
 * @return {DOM}
 */
Dominic.create(defs)
  1. Register a component
/**
 * @param name {string} component name
 * @param fn {Function} function used by dominic to create component. should return an definition object
 */
Dominic.register(name, fn)

Plan

  • Have mixed components and normal elements
  • Have data binding/ linking
  • Have diffing when updating in template
  • Have basic layouts: facebook, twitter, pinterest
  • Have basic components: tab, combobox, table
