dollar-gee ($g)

A little routine for declarative UI definition (or basically creating DOM nodes.)

  • $g('xxx') is the same as parsing <div class='xxx'></div>
  • $g('', 'xxx') will be a text element xxx
  • $g('.a', { href: 'link' }, 'the link') will be an <a> element with a text element inside: <a href='link'>the link</a>
  • $g('#div1', [ $g('#div2 xxx', 'in div2'), $g('#div3 yyy', 'in div3'), 'in div1' ]) will output
          <div id='div2' class='xxx'>in div2</div>
          <div id='div3' class='yyy'>in div3</div>
          in div1

For a bit more complex example, look inside the source. I used this little thing to create UI tree for an iGoogle app back in the day.
