    paperclip-componentpublic

    Paperclip-components allows you to break up your paperclip views into separate files, and re-use them in other parts of your application. This idea was derrived from Ember Components, and Angular Directives.

    Requirements

    Installation

    • Node: npm install paperclip-component
    • Browser: bower install paperclip-component

    Usage

    You'll first need to add paperclip-component as a plugin:

    var pc   = require("paperclip"),
    pcc      = require("paperclip-component"),
    bindable = require("bindable");
     
    //where global components live.
    var components = new bindable.Object();
     
    //plugin paperclip-components, and point to the components dictionary
    pc.use(pcc(components));

    After you have that setup, you can start registering components. Here's one specific to a node.js application:

    components.set("mainLayout", require("./mainLayout"));

    mainLayout.js:

    var mojo = require("mojojs"),
    structr  = require("structr"),
    pc       = require("paperclip")
     
    var MainLayoutView = structr(mojo.View, {
      paper: pc.load(__dirname + "/mainLayout.pc")
    });
     
    module.exports = MainLayoutView;

    mainLayout.pc:

    <html>
      <head>
      </head>
      <body>
        {{ html: sections.body }}
      </body>
    </html>

    After you've defined your component, you can use it in any template. Here's how you might use mainLayout in a .pc file:

    hello.pc:

    {{#mainLayout}}
      {{#sections: "body" }}
        Hello World!
      {{/}}
    {{/}}

    The rendered output of hello.pc would be:

    <html>
      <head>
      </head>
      <body>
        Hello World!
      </body>
    </html>

    install

    npm i paperclip-component
