Examples

Simple example that create an html file with the title example:

var html = createHTML({
  title: 'example'
})

Example using all options:

var html = createHTML({
  title: 'example',
  script: 'example.js',
  scriptAsync: true,
  css: 'example.css',
  lang: 'en',
  dir: 'rtl',
  head: '<meta name="description" content="example">',
  body: '<p>example</p>',
  favicon: 'favicon.png'
})

Create a file with the html contents using the fs module:

var fs = require('fs')
var createHTML = require('create-html')
 
var html = createHTML({
  title: 'example'
})
 
fs.writeFile('index.html', html, function (err) {
  if (err) console.log(err)
})

Create a stream by pairing this module with from2-string:

var fromString = require('from2-string')
var createHTML = require('create-html')
 
var html = createHTML({
  title: 'example'
})
 
var stream = fromString(html)
stream.pipe(process.stdout)

Pipe content into the html that this module generates by using from2-string and hyperstream

var fs = require('fs')
var fromString = require('from2-string')
var hyperstream = require('hyperstream')
var createHTML = require('./index')
 
var html = createHTML({
  title: 'example'
})
 
var hs = hyperstream({
  'body': fs.createReadStream('some.html')
})
 
var stream = fromString(html)
stream.pipe(hs).pipe(process.stdout)
