Elephactory

Elephactory is a simple and expressive JavaScript library to create DOM Nodes in a way that looks like markup, but without messy HTML-in-strings.

Please note that Elephactory is currently in alpha, and is not ready for production use (or even to build, for that matter)!

Usage

Node.js/CommonJS

// Use .create() to get a fresh instance every time, or .get() to get a memoised instance
var E = require('elephactory').get(document);

document.body.appendChild(E._fragment(
    E.header({id:'header'}),
    E.div({class:'content', onclick:function({alert('watch it!');})},
        'ohai, there!'
    )
));

Script Tag

<script src='elephactory.js'></script>
<script>
document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () {
    document.body.appendChild(E._fragment(
        E.header({id:'header'}),
        E.div({class:'content', onclick:function({alert('watch it!');})},
            'ohai, there!'
        )
    ));
});
</script>
