A window manager written in Javascript, HTML5 and CSS3.

Live Demo! (http://www.rlamana.com/ventus) | Video Demo

This project started as an experiment and even though it was stable enough it was never meant to be mantained over time. However, feel free to fork and send PRs!

Creating a new window manager

var wm = new Ventus.WindowManager();

Creating a new empty window

var window = wm.createWindow({
	title: 'A new window',
	x: 50,
	y: 50,
	width: 400,
	height: 250
});

window.open();

Creating a new empty window without animations and staying inside of the space

var window = wm.createWindow({
	title: 'A new window',
	x: 50,
	y: 50,
	width: 400,
	height: 250

	animations: false,
	stayinspace: true,
});

window.open();

Creating a new window wrapping a DOM Element

Using a query
wm.createWindow.fromQuery('#element .selector', {
	title: 'My App',
	width: 330,
	height: 400,
	x: 670,
	y: 60
});
Using a reference
wm.createWindow.fromElement(domElement, {
	title: 'My App',
	width: 500,
	height: 500,
	x: 0,
	y: 0
});

Listening to events

Defining handlers in constructor
var window = wm.createWindow({
	title: 'A new window',
	events: {
		open: function() {
			console.log('The window was open');
		},
		
		closed: function() {
			console.log('The window was closed');
		},
	}
});
Using the 'signals' property
var window = wm.createWindow({
	title: 'A new window'
});

window.signals.on('open', function() {
	console.log('The window was open');
});

Destroying a window

When a window is closed the content is not destroyed by default. This way windows can be open again keeping the wrapped DOM element. To completely destroy the window, the method 'destroy' needs to be called:

var window = wm.createWindow({
	title: 'A new window',
	events: {
		closed: function() {
			this.destroy();
		}
	}
});
