Extends vinyl with render and compile methods, and properties used for rendering templates.

Install

Install with npm:
$ npm install --save vinyl-view

Usage

Use the same way you would use a vinyl file:
var View = require('vinyl-view');
var view = new View({path: 'foo'});

API

View

Create an instance of View. Optionally pass a default object to use.
Params
  • view {Object}

Example
var view = new View({
  path: 'foo.html',
  contents: new Buffer('...')
});

.compile

Synchronously compile a view.
Params
  • locals {Object}: Optionally pass locals to the engine.
  • returns {Object} View: instance, for chaining.

Example
var view = page.compile();
view.fn({title: 'A'});
view.fn({title: 'B'});
view.fn({title: 'C'});

.renderSync

Synchronously render templates in view.content.
Params
  • locals {Object}: Optionally pass locals to the engine.
  • returns {Object} View: instance, for chaining.

Example
var view = new View({content: 'This is <%= title %>'});
view.renderSync({title: 'Home'});
console.log(view.content);

.render

Asynchronously render templates in view.content.
Params
  • locals {Object}: Context to use for rendering templates.

Example
view.render({title: 'Home'}, function(err, res) {
  //=> view object with rendered `content`
});

.context

Create a context object from locals and the view.data and view.locals objects. The view.data property is typically created from front-matter, and view.locals is used when a new View() is created.
This method be overridden either by defining a custom view.options.context function to customize context for a view instance, or static View.context function to customize context for all view instances.
Params
  • locals {Object}: Optionally pass a locals object to merge onto the context.
  • returns {Object}: Returns the context object.

Example
var page = new View({path: 'a/b/c.txt', locals: {a: 'b', c: 'd'}});
var ctx = page.context({a: 'z'});
console.log(ctx);
//=> {a: 'z', c: 'd'}

.isType

Returns true if the view is the given viewType. Returns false if no type is assigned. When used with vinyl-collections, types are assigned by their respective collections.
Params
  • type {String}: (renderable, partial, layout)

Example
var view = new View({path: 'a/b/c.txt', viewType: 'partial'})
view.isType('partial');

.View.context

Define a custom static View.context function to override default .context behavior. See the context docs for more info.
Params
  • locals {Object}
  • returns {Object}

Example
// custom context function
View.context = function(locals) {
  // `this` is the view being rendered
  return locals;
};
