What is it

Dom.js is a light-weight DOM node creation library inspired by Facebook's React. It has no dependacies and is about 20 lines.

How to use

Just include the lib and anywhere you need to create DOM elements in just Javascript use Dom.js. The DOM() takes as many arguments as you want, but the first is always an attributes object for your element. The rest can be either text nodes or other calls to DOM().

You can use React's live JSX Compiler to help you convert your exsisting HTML into this format.

var hw = DOM.div({class:'cool_cssClass'}, "Hello ", DOM.span({style:"font-size:3em"}, 'World'));


Kitten Linker

var kitties = DOM.a({href:'http://placekitten.com', target:'_blank'},

Simple Form

var boringForm = DOM.form({action:"/form_town"},
	"First name: ", DOM.input({type:"text", name:"first_name"}), DOM.br(),
	"Last name: ", DOM.input({type:"text", name:"last_name"}), DOM.br(),
	DOM.input({ type:"submit", value:"Submit"})

Supported Elements

I included nearly every type I could find, but if I missed one feel free to add it in. They're simply stored as an array in the source code.
