YUI Bootstrapper for Node.js
This node.js module attempts to setup and bootstrap a working YUI 3 instance.
This module includes support for remote script loading via Y.Get.script() and remote data fetching via Y.io.
See “JSDom Support” below for DOM manipulation.
All of the examples and tests assume you have
node in your path and they are all executable.
Installing – via NPM
npm install yui3
Installing – as a developer
git clone git://github.com/davglass/nodejs-yui3.git make dev make install
Using the Y.Browser object
To comply with the “no-globals” CommonJS spec, there is no global document or window in this mode.
Just including the nodejs-dom module will create a fake dom for this instance.
You can create a document like this:
View this Gist
You can make older DOM code run by setting up a couple of local variables, like this
If you are using YUI to serve pages, you should use a Nested Use to create the document when the request comes in.
I have an example showing this:
cd examples/ ./general-dom.js ./io.js ./library.js ./y-brower.js
When using JSDom, All relevent YUI 3 Dom & Selector tests pass. The ones that are skipped revolve around styles and postioning. Since there is no window or CSS cascade, these seem unimportant at the moment.
cd ./tests/ ./dom.js ./selector.js
