A tiny helper for document.createElement.
module.exports = function(options) {
var el
, a
, i
if (!options.tagName) {
el = document.createDocumentFragment()
}
else {
el = document.createElement(options.tagName)
if (options.className) {
el.className = options.className
}
if (options.attributes) {
for (a in options.attributes) {
el.setAttribute(a, options.attributes[a])
}
}
if (options.html !== undefined) {
el.innerHTML = options.html
}
}
if (options.text) {
el.appendChild(document.createTextNode(options.text))
}
// IE 8 doesn"t have HTMLElement
if (window.HTMLElement === undefined) {
window.HTMLElement = Element
}
if (options.childs && options.childs.length) {
for (i = 0; i < options.childs.length; i++) {
el.appendChild(options.childs[i] instanceof window.HTMLElement ? options.childs[i] : createElement(options.childs[i]))
}
}
return el
}
var createElement = require("./createElement")
document.body.appendChild(createElement({
tagName: "div",
className: "my-class",
text: "Blah blah",
attributes: {
"id": "element id",
"data-truc": "value"
},
childs: [{ /* recursif call **/}]
}))
// if you use without tagName you will get a document fragment
