A simple HTMLElement shim on the server.

This is a partial implementation of HTMLElement, to get client-side templates (such as hyperscript) working in node!

The current implementation is fully compatible with hyperscript.

Note: adds "document" to globals.

Supported methods

  • createElement(nodeName)
  • createTextNode(value)
  • appendChild(node)
  • replaceChild(node)
  • removeChild(node)
  • insertBefore(new, existing)
  • toString()
  • setAttribute(name, value)
  • getAttribute(name)
  • setProperty(name, value)
  • getProperty(name)
  • innerHTML()
  • outerHTML()
  • textContent()

Setters update existing objects, otherwise create anew;


  • innerHTML
  • outerHTML
  • textContent
  • attribute.value
  • everything else

TODO / Missing features

  • Your PR to make this a more accurate implementation
