zm

Zero Markup JS templating function

This function allows you to write HTML in javascript.

Example

var Zm = require("./lib/zm");
var div = new Zm.Div();
div.addContent("this is a div")
			.addClass("no_wrap blue funny_class")
			.setAttr("clown","true")
			.setAttr("scary","yes");

var html = div.print();
console.log(html);

Output of example

<div class=" no_wrap blue funny_class"  clown="true" scary="yes" >this is a div</div> 

Better Example in a Backbone View, as a function called getTemplate

* akon is an alias for addContent *

var ShoppingCartView = Backbone.View.extend({
	el:"#shopping_cart",
	initialize: function(){
		this.collection.on("add", this.render, this); 
	},
	render: function(){
		var total = this.getTotal();
		this.$el.html(this.getTemplate());
	},
	getTotal: function(){
		var sum = 0;
		_.each(this.collection.models, function(product){
			sum += parseFloat(product.get("price"));
		});
		return parseFloat(sum).toFixed(2);
	},
	getTemplate: function(){
		var header_row = new Zm.Tr().akon(new Zm.Td().akon("Product")).akon(new Zm.Td().akon("Price"));
		var table = new Zm.Table().addClass("shopping_cart_table width_all").akon(header_row);
		_.each(this.collection.models, function(model){
			table.akon(new Zm.Tr().akon(new Zm.Td().akon(model.get("title"))).akon(new Zm.Td().akon(new Zm.Span().addClass("price").akon(model.get("price")))));
		});
		return new Zm.H1("Your Cart").print() + table.print();
	}
});

This produces the html below:

<h1   >Your Cart</h1><table class=" shopping_cart_table width_all"  ><tr   ><td   >Product</td><td   >Price</td></tr><tr   ><td   >Tylenol</td><td   ><span class=" price"  >20.00</span></td></tr></table>
