hast utility to create trees in HTML or SVG.

Similar to hyperscript, virtual-dom/h, React.createElement, and Vue’s createElement, but for hast.

Use unist-builder to create any unist tree.

Install

npm:

npm install hastscript

Use

var h = require('hastscript')
var s = require('hastscript/svg')
 
// Children as an array:
console.log(
  h('.foo#some-id', [
    h('span', 'some text'),
    h('input', {type: 'text', value: 'foo'}),
    h('a.alpha', {class: 'bravo charlie', download: 'download'}, [
      'delta',
      'echo'
    ])
  ])
)
 
// Children as arguments:
console.log(
  h(
    'form',
    {method: 'POST'},
    h('input', {type: 'text', name: 'foo'}),
    h('input', {type: 'text', name: 'bar'}),
    h('input', {type: 'submit', value: 'send'})
  )
)
 
// SVG:
console.log(
  s('svg', {xmlns: 'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg', viewbox: '0 0 500 500'}, [
    s('title', 'SVG `<circle>` element'),
    s('circle', {cx: 120, cy: 120, r: 100})
  ])
)

Yields:

{
  type: 'element',
  tagName: 'div',
  properties: {className: ['foo'], id: 'some-id'},
  children: [
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'span',
      properties: {},
      children: [{type: 'text', value: 'some text'}]
    },
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'input',
      properties: {type: 'text', value: 'foo'},
      children: []
    },
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'a',
      properties: {className: ['alpha', 'bravo', 'charlie'], download: true},
      children: [{type: 'text', value: 'delta'}, {type: 'text', value: 'echo'}]
    }
  ]
}
{
  type: 'element',
  tagName: 'form',
  properties: {method: 'POST'},
  children: [
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'input',
      properties: {type: 'text', name: 'foo'},
      children: []
    },
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'input',
      properties: {type: 'text', name: 'bar'},
      children: []
    },
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'input',
      properties: {type: 'submit', value: 'send'},
      children: []
    }
  ]
}
{
  type: 'element',
  tagName: 'svg',
  properties: {xmlns: 'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg', viewBox: '0 0 500 500'},
  children: [
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'title',
      properties: {},
      children: [{type: 'text', value: 'SVG `<circle>` element'}]
    },
    {
      type: 'element',
      tagName: 'circle',
      properties: {cx: 120, cy: 120, r: 100},
      children: []
    }
  ]
}

API

h(selector?[, properties][, ...children])

s(selector?[, properties][, ...children])

DSL to create virtual hast trees for HTML or SVG.

Parameters
selector

Simple CSS selector (string, optional). Can contain a tag name (foo), IDs (#bar), and classes (.baz). If there is no tag name in the selector, h defaults to a div element, and s to a g element. selector is parsed by hast-util-parse-selector.

properties

Map of properties (Object.<*>, optional).

children

(Lists of) child nodes (string, Node, Array.<string|Node>, optional). When strings are encountered, they are mapped to text nodes.

Returns

Element.

Security

Use of hastscript can open you up to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack as values are injected into the syntax tree. The following example shows how a script is injected that runs when loaded in a browser.

var tree = {type: 'root', children: []}
 
tree.children.push(h('script', 'alert(1)'))

Yields:

<script>alert(1)</script> 

The following example shows how an image is injected that fails loading and therefore runs code in a browser.

var tree = {type: 'root', children: []}
 
// Somehow someone injected these properties instead of an expected `src` and
// `alt`:
var otherProps = {src: 'x', onError: 'alert(2)'}
 
tree.children.push(h('img', {src: 'default.png', ...otherProps}))

Yields:

<img src="x" onerror="alert(2)">

The following example shows how code can run in a browser because someone stored an object in a database instead of the expected string.

var tree = {type: 'root', children: []}
 
// Somehow this isn’t the expected `'wooorm'`.
var username = {
  type: 'element',
  tagName: 'script',
  children: [{type: 'text', value: 'alert(3)'}]
}
 
tree.children.push(h('span.handle', username))

Yields:

<span class="handle"><script>alert(3)</script></span>

Either do not use user input in hastscript or use hast-util-santize.
