    Riot Parents

    Build Status Coverage Status NPM Downloads NPM Downloads

    This is a simple Riot.js mixin which helps with the issue of

    this.parent.parent.someproperty

    and replaces it with

    this.parents(2).someproperty
    with parents with parent
    this.parents(0) this.parent
    this.parents(1) this.parent.parent
    this.parents(2) this.parent.parent.parent
    this.parents(3) this.parent.parent.parent.parent

    I realise that accessing deep ancestors like this makes your components perhaps more coupled that they should be. But sometimes it's nice to be able to drop elements into yielding components and still be able to easily communitcate with them.

    Installing

    npm install riot-parents
    

    Usage

    To add it to all tags

    var parents = require('riot-parents')
    riot.mixin(parents)

    To add it to specific tags, load it the same way, but assign it a name

    var parents = require('riot-parents')
    riot.mixin("parents",parents)

    Then you can use it within specific tags to access parent tags. eg.

    <mylogin>
      <modal>
        <loginform>
          <formrow label="Username">
            <input oninput="{parents(2).handleInput}" name="username" type="text" />
          </div>
          <formrow label="Password">
            <label>Password</label>
            <input oninput="{parents(2).handleInput}" name="password" type="password" />
         </formrow>
        </loginform>
      </modal>
      
      <script>
        this.mixin('parents') // <-- don't need this if you've installed it globally
        this.handleInput = function(e){
          this[e.target.name] = e.target.value
        }
      </script> 
    </mylogin>
