Also implemented for jquery jquery.json2html

npm install node-json2html
    var json2html = require('node-json2html');
    var data = [{'male':'Bob','female':'Jane'},{'male':'Rick','female':'Ann'}];
    var transform = {'tag':'div','html':'${male} likes ${female}'};
    var html = json2html.transform(data,transform);

Instead of writing HTML templates json2html relies on JSON transforms to convert a source JSON objects to html. The benefit of using a JSON transform is that they are already readable by the browser and DO NOT require any compilation before use. In addition, json2html allows the following

  • Short hand notation for mapping data objects to markup
  • Event binding to DOM objects (exclusively with jquery.json2html)
  • Use of inline functions to allow for complex logic during transformation
  • Dynamic building of transform objects
