Arbutus

A JavaScript library to create DOM trees from HTML strings.

Examples

arbutus.parseHTML returns a DocumentFragment.

var fragment = arbutus.parseHTML('<div>alpha</div>');
fragment.firstChild.tagName; // 'DIV'
var fragment = arbutus.parseHTML('  abc<span>beta</span>');
fragment.firstChild.nodeValue; // 'abc'
fragment.firstChild.nextSibling.tagName; // 'SPAN'

Build

To build the production ready files, you need JSMin or any other tool with the same command line interface. Then just type "make" at the command line and look in the build directory for the results.

For the record, this is how I installed JSMin. Note that I have /Users/peter/bin in my PATH.

$ cd ~/tmp
$ curl -O https://raw.github.com/douglascrockford/JSMin/master/jsmin.c
$ gcc -o jsmin jsmin.c
$ mv jsmin ~/bin
$ rm jsmin.c
$ which jsmin
/Users/peter/bin/jsmin

Tests

To run the automated tests, open tst/runner.html in a web browser.
