Merge branch 'FLUID-5552'

* FLUID-5552:
  FLUID-5552: Removed stray console log from ModelTransformationsTests
  FLUID-5552: Renamed functions in text field slider tests from private variables to globally namespaced functions.
  FLUID-5552: Added a comment.
  FLUID-5552: Moved fluid.transforms.stringToNumber() into ModelTransformationTransforms.js
  FLUID-5552: Use relay components and model relay for textToSpeech component.
  FLUID-5552: Improved code according to review comments.
  FLUID-5552: Use the core model relay for the self voicing enactor.
  FLUID-5552: Fixed the unit test failure.
  FLUID-5552: Modified "emphasizeLinks" and "inputLarger" enactors to apply corresponding css selectors to the container rather than specific links and inputs. This fixes the issue that the styling doesn't apply to dynamic contents such as the overview panel that are rendered after enactors have taken effect.
  FLUID-5552: Fixed the issue with the rendering of conditional panels.
  FLUID-5552: Renamed a miss-out "fluid.viewComponent" to "fluid.viewRelayComponent".
  FLUID-5552: Fixed panels unit tests.
  FLUID-5552: Fixed the model relay in between the composite panel and its sub panels.
  FLUID-5552: In-progress work for upgrading the preferences framework to use the new model relay system. Still need to fix the model relay in between composite panels and sub panels.
  FLUID-5552: Added the dependencies for the text field slider component.
  FLUID-5552: Improve the text field slider to use the new model relay system.

What Is Infusion?

Infusion is a different kind of JavaScript framework. Our approach is to leave you in control-- it's your interface, using your markup, your way. Infusion is accessible and very, very configurable.

Infusion includes:

  • an application framework for developing flexible stuff with JavaScript and jQuery
  • a collection of accessible UI components

Where Can I See Infusion Components?

How Do I Get Infusion?

You can checkout and fork Infusion on github:

See How Do I Create an Infusion Package?, for details on creating complete or custom packages of Infusion.

Who Makes Infusion, and How Can I Help?

The Fluid community is an international group of designers, developers, and testers who focus on a common mission: improving the user experience and accessibility of the open web.

The best way to join the Fluid Community is to jump into any of our community activities. Visit our website for links to our mailing lists, chat room, wiki, etc.

Where is Infusion Used?

The Infusion library is the cornerstone of a number of projects. You can see some of them featured on our Projects page.

How Do I Create an Infusion Package?

Strictly speaking, Infusion can be used directly from source (i.e. by including each individual required file). However, for simplicity and performance reasons, you may wish to create a concatenated, minified file. The Grunt build options described below will also allow you to remove any unneeded features or libraries that you may already have in your project.


All other dependencies will be installed by running the following from the project root:

npm install

Package Types

Infusion All Build

Will include all of Infusion. The source files packaged along with the single concatenated js file will include all of the demos and unit tests. This is a good choice if you are trying to learn Infusion.

Custom Build

Will only include the modules you request, and all of their dependencies, minus any that are explicitly excluded. Unlike the "all" build, none of the demos or tests are included with a custom package.

grunt custom

Build Options


value: true (Boolean) the value can be omitted if --source is the last flag specified

By default all packages are minified. This option will allow you to maintain the readable spacing and comments.

grunt --source=true

grunt custom --source=true


value: "module(s)" (String) only available to custom packages

The --include option takes in a comma-separated string of the Modules to be included in a custom package. If omitted, all modules will be included (demos and tests will not be included).

grunt custom --include="inlineEdit, uiOptions"


value: "module(s)" (String) only available to custom packages

The exclude option takes in a comma-separated string of the Modules to be excluded from a custom package. The --exclude option takes priority over --include.

grunt custom --exclude="jQuery"

grunt custom --include="framework" --exclude="jQuery"


value: "custom suffix" (String) only available to custom packages

By default, custom packages are given a name with the form and the concatenated js file is called infusion-custom.js. By supplying the --name option, you can replace "custom" with any other valid string you like.

grunt custom --name="myPackage"    # this produces infusion-myPackage.js

Developing with the Preferences Framework

Infusion is in the process of switching to use Stylus for CSS pre-processing. CSS files for the Preferences Framework have been re-written in Stylus. Only Stylus files are pushed into the github repository. For developing the Preferences Framework, run the following from the project root to compile Stylus files to CSS:

grunt buildStylus
