    Utility for getting an assemble view from a collection object.

    Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your ❤️ and support.


    Install with npm:

    $ npm install --save get-view


    Should work with any collection of vinyl files.

    const getView = require('get-view');

    templates example

    Given the following setup code, all of the below examples would return a view from the app.views.pages collection:

    const templates = require('templates');
    app = templates();
'foo', {content: 'this is foo'});'', {content: 'this is bar'});'a/b/c/', {content: 'this is baz', base: 'a'});'test/fixtures/templates/a.tmpl');

    Get a view by customizing the lookup key with a function:

    const view = getView(app.views.pages, function(view) {
      return view.stem === '';
    //=> <View "foo" <Buffer 74 68 69 73 20 69>>

    Get a view by view.path

    const view = getView(app.views.pages, 'a/b/c/');
    //=> <View "b/c/" <Buffer 74 68 69 73>>

    Get a view by view.basename

    const view = getView(app.views.pages, '');
    //=> <View "b/c/" <Buffer 74 68 69 73>>

    Get a view by view.filename

    const view = getView(app.views.pages, 'baz');
    //=> <View "b/c/" <Buffer 74 68 69 73>>

    Get a view by view.relative

    const view = getView(app.views.pages, 'b/c/');
    //=> <View "b/c/" <Buffer 74 68 69 73>>

    Release history


    Breaking changes

    • The order of arguments has been reversed, so that the collection of views is passed first, and the lookup value is second.
    • No longer matches with globs. This can be done by passing a glob matcher as the second argument.
