transformime

Build Status

Optimus MIME

Transforms MIMEtype+data to HTML Elements

Intended to be used in context of Jupyter and IPython projects, particularly by display areas.

Installation

npm install transformime

Usage

Transformime works in the browser (via browserify), converting a mimebundle (MIME type + data) into HTML Elements. transformime.transform returns promises for all the HTMLElements.

Using the helper function createTransform

var transformime = require("transformime");
 
var transform = transformime.createTransform();
 
transform({
    "text/plain": "Hello, World!",
}).then(function onSuccess(result) {
    mimeType = result.mimetype;
    htmlElement = result.el;
    console.log("Tranformime: Result:", mimeType, htmlElement);
}, function onError(err) {
    console.error("Transformime: Error:", err);
});

Transform a single mimetype

> t = new transformime.Transformime();
> p1 = t.transform({'text/html': '<h1>Woo</h1>'}, document)
Promise { <pending> }
> p1
Promise {
  { mimetype: 'text/html',
  el:
   { _events: {},
     _childNodes: [Object],
     _childNodesList: null,
     _ownerDocument: [Object],
     _childrenList: null,
     _version: 1,
     _parentNode: null,
     _memoizedQueries: {},
     _readonly: false,
     _namespaceURI: 'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml',
     _prefix: null,
     _localName: 'div',
     _attributes: {},
     _settingCssText: false,
     _style: [Object] } } }
> p1.then(function(result){
...   console.log(result.el.innerHTML);
...   console.log(result.el.textContent);
... });
Promise { <pending> }
> <h1>Woo</h1>
Woo

Images get handled as base64 encoded data and become embedded elements.

> // Send an image over
> p2 = t.transform({'image/png': 'R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7'}, document)
> p2.then(function(result){
...     console.log(result.el.src);
... })
data:image/png;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Transform the richest element

> var mimes = {'text/html': '<code>import this</code>', 'text/plain': 'import this'}
> var p3 = t.transform(mimes, document);
> p3.then(function(result){
...    console.log(result.mimetype + "" + result.el.innerHTML)
... })
text/html: <code>import this</code>

Working with iframes

> // Create an arbitrary iframe and slap it in the body of the document
> var iframe = document.createElement("iframe");
> document.querySelector('body').appendChild(iframe);
> var idoc = iframe.contentDocument;
> // Pass the iframe's document as the document context for the created element
> var p5 = t.transform({'text/html': '<h1>mimetic</h1>'}, idoc);
> p5.then(function(result){
... idoc.querySelector('body').appendChild(result.el);
... })
> idoc.querySelector('body').innerHTML
'<div><h1>mimetic</h1></div>'
