Swag

NPM

Swag is a growing collection of helpers for Handlebars.js. Give your handlebars.js templates some swag son!

Usage

<!-- Browser -->
<script src="../path_to/handlebars.js"></script>
<script src="../path_to/swag.js"></script>
<script>Swag.registerHelpers(Handlebars);</script>

// Node
Handlebars = require('handlebars');
Swag = require('swag');

Swag.registerHelpers(Handlebars);

Swag.registerHelpers

This method will register all Swag helpers with the instance of Handlebars you pass to it.

<script src="../path_to/handlebars.js"></script>
<script src="../path_to/swag.js"></script>
<script>Swag.registerHelpers(window.Handlebars);</script>

If you don't pass any instance of Handlebars, Swag will use the Handlebars instace available in the global context.

<script src="../path_to/handlebars.js"></script>
<script src="../path_to/swag.js"></script>
<script>
    // Will use window.Handlebars or Ember.Handlebars if you're using Ember.
    Swag.registerHelpers();
</script>

This method must be called in order to use Swag helpers in you Handlebars templates.

Context

If you have functions in your template's context, Swag will execute the function and use the returned value inside the helper:

context = {
    firstName: function() { return 'elving'; }
    lastName: 'Rodríguez'
};

{{uppercase firstName}} {{lowercase lastName}}

ELVING rodríguez

If you pass a string to a Number, Math or any helper that needs a number to work, Swag will try to convert it to a number and use it:

context = {
    age: '24'
};

{{add age '1'}}

25

partial

Provides an easy way to register and use partials from inside your templates. It supports AMD and CommonJS if you are writing your templates as modules. If your module returns a string, set Swag.Config.precompiledTemplates = false so that Swag appends !text before your module's path for AMD. If all of your templates are on the same path you can override Swag.Config.partialsPath = 'path/' and only use your template's name as your partial name. If your templates are on different paths then use the full path as your partial's name.

If you are not using AMD or CommonJS modules you can pass a third argument that will contain your template. If the argument is a function, Swag will treat it as a compiled Handlebar template.

If you are using Ember, the partial helper will not be registered to avoid collisions with the partial helper from Ember.

Parameters:

name [string] - The name or path of the file in which your template is define. You can tell swag where your templates folder is by overriding Swag.Config.partialsPath. (Required)

data [int|string|collection] - The data you want to use inside the partial. (Optional)

template [string|function] - The template for you partial. Pass this if you are not using AMD or CommonJS modules. (Optional)

Usage:

Swag.Config.partialsPath = '../views/templates/'

collection = ['Professor Farnsworth', 'Fry', 'Bender']

# Your Partial (planet_express.hbs)
{{sort this}}

# Your template
<p>
    {{partial "planet_express" collection}}
</p>

<p>Bender, Fry, Professor Farnsworth</p>


# Your template data
context =
    data: ['Professor Farnsworth', 'Fry', 'Bender']
    template: '<p>{{sort this}}</p>'

# Your template
{{partial "planet_express" data template}}
