DORM

DORM (Document Object Render Model). Render HTML documents using JavaScript objects.

Make sure you have NodeJS installed. Run the following command:

npm install dorm

Here is a simple example how you can use DORM to render your HTML documents.

First, write an DORM file containing a JSON structured object:

{
  "doctype" : {},
  "html" : {
    "children" : [
      {
        "head" : {
          "children" : [
              { "title": { "children" : [{"text" : "website title"}] }}
          ]
        }
      },
      {
        "body" : {
          "children" : [
              { "div": {} }
          ]
        }
      }
    ]
  }
}

Save this file as example.json. Execute the dorm program and pass this file as parameter.

dorm example.json

Output:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

  <head>
    <title>website title</title>
  </head>
  
  <body>
    <div></div>
  </body>

</html>

Simple.

To minify the file output run the command above adding the parameter -m or --minify.

dorm -m example.json
Usage: dorm [options] <file>

Options:

  -h, --help     output usage information
  -V, --version  output the version number
  -m, --minify
