Interparse JS

Build Status

What is it?

A toolkit for implementing string interpolation in your application. The resultant expression is compiled into a function for simple reuse.

API Documentation

interparse(options [, expression] [, values])


Using JSON Format

  • start: The starting delimiter for interpolated values.
  • end: The ending delimiter for interpolated values.
  • params: (Optional) A list of top level variable names used in the expression. The parser will attempt to auto-detect required names. For example, {{name}} would be detected as a named parameter "name" if you're using a "stash" format.

Using String Format

You can also specify options with a string in the following format: <start><value><end>

For example, for Ruby/CoffeeScript style interpolation: #{<value>}

Expression (optional)

A string value containing a mix of plain string data and interpolated values.

Values (optional)

An array or objects containing values representing the top level variable names provided earlier. You can also provide a string if there is only one named parameter in the interpolation.

Possible Return Values

  • If options and _values is not provided: a function with the following format: interparseWithOptions(expression[, values]) This function is capable of compiling expressions as well as running them using the options provided in the original call to interparse(). Possible use cases for this function include if you have a single interpolation format and multiple expressions, but you don't want to pass your options object around.

  • If values is not provided: a compiled function that will produce the given interpolated string's output when provided with the required parameters. Example: var fn = interparse(options, expression); var result = fn(model);

  • If all three parameters are provided: the result of the interpolation with the given parameters. var result = interparse(options, expression, model);

How to use

In Node.js

var interparse = require('interparse');

In a browser

<script type="text/javascript" src="interparse.js"></script>

Interparse supports CommonJS, AMD, and the window object out the box.


Ruby/CoffeeScript Style

var fn = interparse("#{<value>}", "my name is #{name}");
var result = fn(["Steven"]);

"Stash" Style

var fn = interparse("{{<value>}}", "my name is {{name}}");
var result = fn("Steven");

Underscore Style

var fn = interparse("<%=<value>%>", "my name is <%= name %>");
var result = fn({ name: "Steven" });

For more examples, take a look at the /examples folder or inspect the unit tests.


npm i interparse
