Functions

String -> HTML

To generate HTML elements from template strings, use the stringToElement function.

const stringToConvert = 'There should be a ${buttonElement} here.'
 
microHTML.stringToElement({ 
    string: stringToConvert, // The string to parse
    value: 'Button Text', // The inner HTML of the element
    }, 'button' // The element to generate
)
 
// returns the following:
// There should be a <button class='variable buttonElement'>Button Text</button> here.

HTML -> String

You can parse HTML to extact template strings based on the elements' class by using the elementToString function.

const htmlToConvert = `There should be a <button class='variable buttonElement'>Button Text</button>
here, and a <section class='variable sectionElement'>section</section> here.`
 
microHTML.elementToString(htmlToConvert)
 
// returns the following:
//'There should be a ${buttonElement} here, and a ${sectionElement} here.'

Extract Literals from HTML

The parseHTML function will return an array of template strings.

const htmlToConvert = `<span class='variable spanElement'>There should be a 
<button class='variable buttonElement'>Button Text</button> here.</span>`
 
microHTML.parseHTML(htmlToConvert)
 
// returns the following:
// ["spanElement", "buttonElement"]

Optionally, you can pass true to the second parameter of the parseHTML function, and it will return the template strings with the standard JavaScript template delimiters.

microHTML.parseHTML(htmlToConvert, true)
 
// returns the following:
// ["${spanElement}", "${buttonElement}"]
