    Metawidget

    Metawidget 4.2 is a smart User Interface widget that populates itself with UI components to match the properties of your domain objects. Can be used through Node.js for server-side UI generation.

    Introduction

    For an introduction to Metawidget, please see the tutorial at http://metawidget.org/doc/reference/en/html/ch01s02.html

    The Node.js version of Metawidget must be used in combination with a DOM implementation. This can either be jsdom, envjs, or even a simple implementation of your own (see test/render.js inside this module for an example). Metawidget must be wrapped around a DOM element. The Metawidget constructor takes this element, and thereafter always uses element.ownerDocument rather than referencing any global document object.

    Installation

    npm install metawidget

    Usage

    See test/render.js inside this module for a working example. But briefly:

    var metawidget = require( 'metawidget' );
    ...
    var mw = new metawidget.Metawidget( yourElement );
    mw.toInspect = {
        firstname: "Joe",
        surname: "Bloggs"
    };
    mw.buildWidgets();
    ...
    // yourElement is now populated with child components
