Include the main library dependencies: ```html ``` Optionally, include the bootstrap extension (requires bootstrap): ```html ``` Create the javascript BrutusinForms instance, schema being a javascript object representing the schema structure: ```javascript var schema = {"type": "boolean"} var BrutusinForms = brutusin"json-forms"; var bf = BrutusinForms.create(schema); ``` And finally render the form inside a container with optional preloaded JSON initial data, data: ```javascript var container = document.getElementById('container'); bf.render(container, data); ```



Dynamic schemas

This library supports dynamic schemas, that is, subschemas that can change depending on the value of other parts of the data. This lets creating dynamic forms that vary their shape depending on the values entered by the user. This is extremely useful for big autogenerated schemas, that aggregates lots of subschemas and have functional bindings, given that it allows to show the user a simpler, non-error-prone form, also avoiding asking for unneeded data. Dynamic schemas are built upon two main blocks:
  • Custom (non-standard) schema property called dependsOn, to build the subschemas dependency graph
