@swim/view provides a unified HTML, SVG, and Canvas view hierarchy, with integrated controller architecture, animated procedural styling, and constraint-based layouts. @swim/view is part of the @swim/ui framework.



For an npm-managed project, npm install @swim/view to make it a dependency. TypeScript sources will be installed into node_modules/@swim/view/main. Transpiled JavaScript and TypeScript definition files install into node_modules/@swim/view/lib/main. And a pre-built UMD script can be found in node_modules/@swim/view/dist/main/swim-view.js.


Browser applications can load swim-ui.js—which bundles the @swim/view library—along with its swim-core.js dependency, directly from the swimOS CDN.

<!-- Development -->
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

<!-- Production -->
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

Alternatively, the standalone swim-system.js script may be loaded from the swimOS CDN, which bundles @swim/view together with all other @swim/system libraries.

<!-- Development -->
<script src=""></script>

<!-- Production -->
<script src=""></script>



@swim/view can be imported as an ES6 module from TypeScript and other ES6-compatible environments.

import * as view from "@swim/view";


@swim/view can also be used as a CommonJS module in Node.js applications.

var view = require("@swim/view");


When loaded by a web browser, the swim-ui.js script adds all @swim/view library exports to the global swim namespace. The swim-ui.js script requires that swim-core.js has already been loaded.

The swim-system.js script also adds all @swim/view library exports to the global swim namespace, making it a drop-in replacement for 'swim-core.js' and swim-ui.js when additional @swim/system libraries are needed.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
