Zangdar Wizard

A JavaScript class to simply generate and handle HTML form wizards.

You can find a very simple demo at this link, and the API documentation here.



Getting started

Installation

To install Zangdar, you just have to download zangdar.min.js in the dist folder and add a script into your HTML page :

<script src="path/to/zangdar.min.js"></script>

Your have to add this basic CSS to your styles too :

.zangdar__wizard .zangdar__step {
    display: none;
}
.zangdar__wizard .zangdar__step.zangdar__step__active {
    display: block;
}

Basic usage

Here a basic HTML form with sections to separate wizard parts :

<form id="my-form">
    <section data-step="coords">
        <input type="text" name="name" placeholder="Your name here...">
        <input type="text" name="email" placeholder="Your email here...">
        
        <button data-next>Next</button>
    </section>
    
    <section data-step="security">
        <input type="password" name="password" placeholder="Your password here...">
        <input type="password" name="password_confirm" placeholder="Confirm your password here...">
        
        <button data-prev>Previous</button>
        <button data-next>Next</button>
    </section>
    
    <section data-step="personal">
        <input type="date" name="birthdate" placeholder="Your birthdate...">
        <input type="text" name="addresss" placeholder="Your address here...">
        <input type="number" name="zipcode" placeholder="Your zipcode here...">
        <input type="text" name="city" placeholder="Your city here...">
        
        <button data-prev>Previous</button>
        <button type="submit">Send</button>
    </section>
</form>

And you just have to instanciate Zangdar with the selector of the form you wan't to handle :

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', () => {
    const wizard = new Zangdar('#my-form')
})

And.. voilà ! You have a fully functional wizard ! :)

                .same('password', 'confirm_password')
                .validateAll()
                
             if (!validator.isValid()) {
