Checkly Handlebars

This library is a very simple wrapper around the templating library Handlebars that bundles additional helpers. It can be used as a drop-in replacement. At Checkly, we use Handlebars to provide a powerful flexibility in some of our features like creating custom bodies for alerting webhooks.

What is Checkly?

Checkly is an active reliability platform that brings together the best of end-to-end testing and active monitoring to serve modern, cross-functional DevOps teams. With a focus on JavaScript-based Open Source tech stacks, Checkly is easy to get started with and seamlessly integrates into your development workflow.

Usage

Install via NPM:

$ npm install @checkly/handlebars --save # or yarn add @checkly/handlebars 

You can use it as a drop-in replacement for Handlebars:

// replaced the following
const Handlebars = require('handlebars')
 
// with
const Handlebars = require('@checkly/handlebars')

Helpers

Built-in helpers provided by the vanilla Handlebars package can still be used. If you are using this library for your own project, you can couple it with other libraries that adds functionality such as handlebars-extra.

{{$RANDOM_NUMBER}}

Produces a random number between 0 and 1000.

Example

Your lucky number is {{$RANDOM_NUMBER}}
<!-- results in: '345' -->

{{$UUID}}

Provides a UUID string from cryptographically-strong random values, compliant with RFC4122's Version 4.

SessionId: {{$UUID}}
<!-- results in: '9b1deb4d-3b7d-4bad-9bdd-2b0d7b3dcb6d' -->

{{and}}

Helper that renders the block if both of the given values are truthy. If an inverse block is specified it will be rendered when falsy. Works as a block helper, inline helper or subexpression.

Params

  • a {any}
  • b {any}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}

Example

<!-- {great: true, magnificent: true} -->
{{#and great magnificent}}A{{else}}B{{/and}}
<!-- results in: 'A' -->

{{compare}}

Render a block when a comparison of the first and third arguments returns true. The second argument is the arithemetic operator to use. You may also optionally specify an inverse block to render when falsy.

Params

  • a {}
  • operator {}: The operator to use. Operators must be enclosed in quotes: ">", "=", "<=", and so on.
  • b {}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}: Block, or if specified the inverse block is rendered if falsey.

{{contains}}

Block helper that renders the block if collection has the given value, using strict equality (===) for comparison, otherwise the inverse block is rendered (if specified). If a startIndex is specified and is negative, it is used as the offset from the end of the collection.

Params

  • collection {Array|Object|String}: The collection to iterate over.
  • value {any}: The value to check for.
  • [startIndex=0] {Number}: Optionally define the starting index.
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object.

Example

<!-- array = ['a', 'b', 'c'] -->
{{#contains array "d"}}
  This will not be rendered.
{{else}}
  This will be rendered.
{{/contains}}

{{default}}

Returns the first value that is not undefined, otherwise the "default" value is returned.

Params

  • value {any}
  • defaultValue {any}
  • returns {String}

{{eq}}

Block helper that renders a block if a is equal to b. If an inverse block is specified it will be rendered when falsy. You may optionally use the compare="" hash argument for the second value.

Params

  • a {String}
  • b {String}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}: Block, or inverse block if specified and falsey.

{{gt}}

Block helper that renders a block if a is greater than b.

If an inverse block is specified it will be rendered when falsy. You may optionally use the compare="" hash argument for the second value.

Params

  • a {String}
  • b {String}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}: Block, or inverse block if specified and falsey.

{{gte}}

Block helper that renders a block if a is greater than or equal to b.

Params

  • a {String}
  • b {String}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}: Block, or inverse block if specified and falsey.

{{has}}

Block helper that renders a block if value has pattern. If an inverse block is specified it will be rendered when falsy.

Params

  • val {any}: The value to check.
  • pattern {any}: The pattern to check for.
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}

{{isFalsey}}

Returns true if the given value is falsey. Uses the falsey library for comparisons. Please see that library for more information or to report bugs with this helper.

Params

  • val {any}
  • options {Options}
  • returns {Boolean}

{{isTruthy}}

Returns true if the given value is truthy. Uses the falsey library for comparisons. Please see that library for more information or to report bugs with this helper.

Params

  • val {any}
  • options {Options}
  • returns {Boolean}

{{ifEven}}

Return true if the given value is an even number.

Params

  • number {Number}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
  • returns {String}: Block, or inverse block if specified and falsey.

Example

{{#ifEven value}}
  render A
{{else}}
  render B
{{/ifEven}}

{{ifNth}}

Conditionally renders a block if the remainder is zero when a operand is divided by b. If an inverse block is specified it will be rendered when the remainder is not zero.

Params

  • {}: {Number}
  • {}: {Number}
  • options {Object}: Handlebars provided options object
