spooky-element

A very lightweight, jQuery-like wrapper for DOM elements, with a lot of functionality.

Makes working with DOM elements a little less scary :)

Couldn't find anything like this, so I've put it together to help me build awesome sites, extra FAST!

  • Saves you time
  • Built for performance! Great for creating DOM elemennts on the fly
  • Works well with Handlebars, especially with hbsfy
  • Works great with GSAP (TweenLite, TimelineLite, etc.)
  • Built on the shoulders of giants
  • Extra spooky 👻

Browser testing is provided by the awesome folks at BrowserStack

Installation

npm install spooky-element

Usage

Feature Examples

var SpookyElement = require('spooky-element');
 
// Select an existing element withing the DOM
// new SpookyElement( selector [, parentSelector] )
// or
// new SpookyElement( selector [, spookyElementParent] )
 
new SpookyElement('.ghost');
new SpookyElement('.ghost', '#haunted-house');
// Or without the new keyword
SpookyElement('.ghost', spookyElementHauntedHouse);
 
// Pass in jQuery elements
new SpookyElement($('.ghost'), $('body'));
 
// Pass in a DOM element
// new SpookyElement( domElement );
 
new SpookyElement( document.getElementById('boo') );
 
// Pass in an HTML string
// new SpookyElement( HTMLString );
 
new SpookyElement( '<div class="boo"></div>' );
 
// Provide a template function (like handlebars)
// new SpookyElement( templateFunction [, templateData] );
// using hbsfy (https://github.com/epeli/node-hbsfy) browserify transform here, very handy!
 
new SpookyElement( require('templates/Boo.hbs'), {autoSpook:true} );
 
// You can also extend a SpookyElement
// This will automatically render the template on initialization
 
var ExtraSpooky = function(data){
    this.template = require('../templates/ExtraSpooky.hbs');
    SpookyElement.call(this, data);
}
ExtraSpooky.prototype = Object.create(SpookyElement.prototype);
 
 
// Or ES6 syntax
class ExtraSpooky extends SpookyElement {
    constructor(data){
        super(require('../templates/ExtraSpooky.hbs'), data);
    }
}
 
// Pass in data to the template for extra spoookiness
var extraSpooky = new ExtraSpooky({eyes:'angry', slime:true});

Basic Usage

var spooky = new SpookyElement( '<div class="boo">BOO!</div>' );
spooky.css({
    fontSize: '40px',
    fontWeight: 'bold',
    color: 'red',
    cursor: 'pointer'
})
// yes it's chainable
.appendTo('body')
.on('mousedown', function(){
    spooky.css('color', 'blue');
})
.on('mouseup', function(){
    spooky.css('color', 'red');
});
