Fay jQuery

jQuery bindings for Fay. This project is experimental and not suitable for production purposes.

The short-term goals of this project are to help discover the real world requirements of Fay and to invite bikeshedding over the fay-jquery API. That means that names and types may change in rapid and annoying ways until conventions settle down.

The one consistent convention in the library is that the jQuery object on which methods operate is the last parameter to every function. This allows simple monadic composition:

makeSquare :: JQuery -> Fay JQuery
makeSquare = addClass "square" >=>
             setWidth 400 >=>
             setHeight 400

main :: Fay ()
main = do
    makeSquare $ select "#elementToMakeSquare"
    return ()


To use this with fay, cabal install the package which will put the source files in fay ~/.cabal/share/fay-jquery- You can then compile with fay using

fay --include=~/.cabal/share/fay-jquery- MyFile.hs

Supported API calls

This binding is a work in progress. I'm adding calls by section of the jQuery docs. There is some overlap in the sections, but the following sections are (mostly) complete.

  • Attributes
  • Core
  • CSS
  • Manipulation
  • Traversing

Still to do

  • Ajax
  • Data
  • Deferred Object
  • Effects
  • Events
  • Forms
  • Internals
  • Miscellaneous
  • Offset
  • Plugins
  • Properties
  • Utilities

Not Applicable

  • Selectors
