dustjs-more-helpers Build Status NPM version

Dust.js official plus more helpers.

More Helpers

Range

Iterates over an array of integers.

params:

  • from - optional - what int to start counting from. Defaults to 0
  • n - required if to is missing - how many items in the array.
  • to - required if n is missing - the upper boundary (not included);

context:

  • $i - the iterator value.

Examples:

simple usage

  {@range n=3}a{/range}
  'aaa'

printing the loop variable

  {@range n=3}a{$i}{/range}
  'a0a1a2'

repeats 5 starting from 3

  {@range from=3 n=5 }a{$i}{/range}
  'a3a4a5a6a7'

repeats with steps and from

  {@range from=2 to=10 step=2}a{$i}{/range}
  'a2a4a6a8'

Iterate

Iterates trough the key value pairs of an object.

  • key - required - iteratee
  • sort - Optional. If omitted, no sort is done. Values allowed:
    • sort="asc" - sort ascending (per JavaScript array sort rules)
    • sort="desc" - sort descending
    • sort="fname" - Look for fname object in global context, if found, treat it as a JavaScript array sort compare function. if not found, result is undefined.

Additional context variable: {$parentKey} gives the parent key in a nested iteration.

Example

For the context:

{
    "day":"4",
    "month":1,
    "year" : 2016
}

This template:

{@iterate key=obj}
    {$key} - {$value} of type {$type} {~n}
{/iterate}

Will output

day - 4 of type String 
month - 1 of type Number
year - 2016 of type Number

Some

The Dust.js some helper checks whether in a given array keys and values exist.

{@some arr=myObj key="myKey" value="myValue"}{/some}
  • arr - required - the array containing the objects to be iterated

  • key - required - the key in the object

  • value - optional - the value of the key to be checked, defaults to an existance check if absent.

Examples

For the context:

{
  myArr: [
    {"name": "Steve"},
    {"name": "Diego"}
  ]
}

template #1:

{@some arr=myArr key="name" value="Steve" }
block
{/some}

renders to:

block

and template #2:

{@some arr=myArr key="name" value="John" }
block
{/some}

renders to empty string.

All

All the objects contained in the array must have the key (value) specified.

{@all arr=myObj key="myKey"}{/all}
{@all arr=myObj key="myKey" value="myValue"}{/all}
  • arr - required - the array containing the objects to be iterated
  • key - required - the key in the object
  • value - optional - the value of the key to be checked, defaults to an existance check if absent.

Examples

For the context:

{
  myArr: [
    {"name": "Steve"},
    {"name": "Steve"}
  ]
}

template #1:

{@all arr=myArr key="name" value="Steve"}
block
{/all}

renders to:

block

and template #2:

{@all arr=myArr key="name" value="John"}
block
{/all}

renders to empty string.

Contains

The Dust.js contains helper checks whether in a given array keys and values exist. It delegates internally to all and some helpers.

{@contains arr=myObj key="myKey" value="myValue" scope="once/all"}{/contains}
  • arr - required - the array containing the objects to be iterated
  • key - required - the key in the object
  • value - optional - the value of the key to be checked.
  • scope [once or all] - optional -
    • 'once' checks whether there is at least one element in the array has the given key and value.
    • 'all' checks whether all elements in the array have the given key and value.

Examples

For the context:

{
  myArr: [
    {"name": "Steve"},
    {"name": "Steve"}
  ]
}

template #1:

{@contains arr=myArr key="name" value="Steve" scope="all"}
block
{/contains}

renders to:

block

and template #2:

{@contains arr=myArr key="name" value="John" scope="all"}
block
{/contains}

renders to empty string.

  • 1.0.2 - added range from, to, and step params
  • 1.0.1 - added range helper
  • 1.0.0 - major refactoring, added some and all helpers
  • 0.4.0 - change GIT repository to https://github.com/nikolaygit/dustjs-helpers-extra
