Usage

npm install @squarespace/darwin;
import Darwin from '@squarespace/darwin';
 
const instance = new Darwin({
  callback: () => {
    console.log('Mutation observed!');
  },
  targets: [
    '.my-mutating-node'
  ]
});

Using ES6

If you prefer to handle transpiling and polyfilling on your own, you can import ES6 from Darwin:

import darwin from '@squarespace/darwin/src';

Alternately, Darwin specifies a module property in package.json that points to the uncompiled src/index.js, so you may be able to simply import @squarespace/darwin if you're using one of the following bundlers:

Reference

new Darwin(config)

Params

  • config Object - Config object
  • config.callback Array - Callback function to run when mutations occur
  • config.targets Boolean - Selectors of targets to observe

Darwin.init()

Create a new MutationObserver and instruct it to observe the targets you gave it.

Darwin.destroy()

Unbind all event listeners, disconnect the MutationObserver and null it out.
