* Description
Very basic Python functions to generate HTML in a composable way.
* Usage
Very much inspired from React.
A component is any function that returns the result of a ~create_element~ call. This function that the element name,
Let us first define a Text component. We will create a text element without any attributes:
#+begin_src python :session
from chp import create_element, create_prop, render_element
def Text(t):
return create_element("span", [], t)
t = Text("YourLabs")
# outputs => "<span >YourLabs</span>"
: <span >YourLabs</span>
Let's now use this component to display text inside of a link:
#+begin_src python :session
def Link(href, children):
href = create_prop("href", href)
return create_element("a", [href], children)
l = Link("", [Text("YourLabs")])
# outputs => "<a href=""><span >YourLabs</span></a>"
: <a href=""><span >YourLabs</span></a>
Let us now define a Menu component that will create links inside of a nav element based on some input. Let's also rename our ~create_element~ and ~create_prop~ functions to ~ce~ and ~cp~ respectively.
#+begin_src python :session
ce = create_element
cp = create_prop
def Menu(links=[]):
c = [] # menu children links array
for l in links:
el = Link(l["href"], [Text(l["text"])])
return ce("nav", [cp("class", "menu")], c)
links = [
"href": "",
"text": "YourLabs",
"href": "",
"text": "NovaMedia",
m = Menu(links)
# outputs => <nav class="menu"><a href=""><span >YourLabs</span></a><a href=""><span >NovaMedia</span></a></nav>
Pretty printed, this final output is:
#+begin_src html
<nav class="menu">
<a href="">
<a href="">
Feel free to check out the and files to see how a full page can be built easily using this method. The file writes the html output to another file called ~output.html~.
* Trying it
#+begin_src bash
git clone
python # write html to output.html file
firefox output.html
* Examples
To run the example project:
#+begin_src bash
pip install --user --editable path/to/chp[dev]
yarn install; yarn start
chp-django runserver
py.test path/to/chp
#+begin_src python
import chp
def FormSchema(is_checked):
return chp.Form([
class PostForm(forms.ModelForm):
def render(self):
is_checked = 'checked' # self.checked
return mark_safe(FormSchema(is_checked).render_element(Form))
~phtml~ becomes a string containing the following html code:
#+begin_src html
<form class="mdc-layout-grid__cell">
<div class="mdc-layout-grid__inner">
<input class="mdc-input__native-control" type="text" id="{{ id }}" value="{{ value }}" name="username"></input>
<div class="mdc-form-field">
<div class="mdc-checkbox">
<input class="mdc-checkbox__native-control" type="checkbox" id="{{ id }}" name="password"></input>
<div class="mdc-checkbox-background"></div>
<label for="{{ id }}">{{ label }}</label>
<div >
{% for error in form.non_field_errors %}
{{ error }}
{% endfor %}
