postal.dom

binds a DOM event to a postal.js channel/topic for publication

postal.dom

postal.dom binds a DOM event to a postal channel/topic so that when the DOM event is triggered, a postal message will be published.

Postal message data comes from two sources: data-postal-* attributes on the DOM element, and/or a data attribute provided on the publication hash passed to postal.dom.on.

postal.dom may be used in the browser with require.js. A non-require version will be available soon.

postal.dom requires:

  • jquery
  • underscore
  • require.js
  • postal.js

To build the project run jake build.

Use the build/postal.dom-X.X.X.js file in your own project.

To run the demo project, start the demo server at the project root: node demo-server.js.

Then browse to http://localhost:1982/index.html.

<!-- all data-postal-* attributes will be used as message data -->
<button id="demo-button" data-postal-foo="bar" data-postal-baz="bin">Demo Button</button>
// subscribe to postal message 
postal.subscribe({
  channel: 'postal-dom-demo',
  topic: 'button.clicked',
  callbackfunction (data) {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(data));
    // { "foo": "bar", "baz": "bin" } 
  }
});
 
// bind DOM event to postal channel/topic 
postal.dom.on('#demo-button', 'click', {
  channel: 'postal-dom-demo',
  topic: 'button.clicked'
  //, data: {} /*optional*/ 
});
 
// unbind DOM listeners when finished 
postal.dom.off('#demo-button');
// or 
postal.dom.off('#demo-button', 'click');
// or 
postal.dom.on('#demo-button', 'click', {
  channel: 'postal-dom-demo',
  topic: 'button.clicked'
});
 
// unbind all postal DOM lsiteners 
postal.dom.off();
