PHP-Dynamic-Html

An extensible and dynamic HTML helper library for PHP

Update

The new version includes some cleaner approaches and more logical interfaces. The changes are as follows: - Removed auto echo setting: It seemed to only complicate what should be simple, so I removed this. Storage and output methods can be approached from the custom user app itself. - Added DynamicTags::mergeAttr(): Converts & merges passed arrays. Especially useful for extending. See examples below. - Changed DynamicTags::attrArrayToStr() to DynamicTags::createAttrString() and added support for param string as well as array - Added mapColsArr(), mapCols(), mapRowsArr(), and mapRows() See docs below

Introduction

This library, and it's classes, are fairly straight-forward. The encouragement is to extend with your own tags/methods, for others to use, and for your own projects.

The initial motivation was to further divide server-side code from client-side code. A furthering motivation was to provide an extensible interface for script-to-HTML mapping in the most basic of forms, saving us from messy(and slow) code.

Installation

Via Composer

composer require iautomation/dynamic-html

and include composer if needed

include './vendor/autoload.php'

Alternate

Include the class files from the src directory

Example Usage

Basic Example

Below is a full html document written completely with DynamicTags

<?php

use \DynamicHtml\DynamicTags as DT;
use \DynamicHtml\DynamicTagsShort as DTS;
use \DynamicHtml\DynamicTagsHelper as DTH;

echo DT::create('!DOCTYPE', 'html', null);
echo DT::html();

echo DT::head();
	echo DT::base('href=http://blah.com&id=blah'); // or echo DT::base(['href'=>'http://blah.com', 'id'=>'blah']);
	echo DT::meta('name=description&content=This is the description');
echo DT::end();

echo DT::body();

echo DT::header();
echo DT::ul();
echo DT::li(null, DTH::hyperlink('http://...', null, 'one'));
echo DT::li(null, DTH::hyperlink('http://...', null, 'two'));
echo DT::li(null, DTH::hyperlink('http://...', null, 'three'));
echo DT::end(2);

echo DTH::table([
	['1', '2', '3'],
	['2', '3', '1'],
]);

echo DT::style();
echo <<<EOT
[testselector] {
	background: blue;
	color:white;
}
EOT;
echo DT::end();
echo DT::div('testselector', 'hi');

echo DT::endAll();

Classes

Below is specific documentation to each class, it's methods, and example usage.

DynamicHtml\DynamicTags

The main class providing methods to convert attributes, create start and end tags, and record/output end tags using the end() method.

Example Usage

use \DynamicHtml\DynamicTags as DT;

echo DT::span('id=name', 'John Doe'); // or
echo DT::span(['id'=>'name'], 'John Doe'); // or
echo DT::span('id=name').'John Doe'.DT::end();

Methods

  • __callStatic($method, $args)
  • create($name, $attr=null, $content=true)
  • end($amount=1)
  • endAll()
  • createStartTag($name, $attr=null)
  • createEndTag($name)
  • addTagToLog($name)
  • removeTagFromLog()
  • mergeAttr()
  • createAttrString($attr=null)
  • mapColsArr($method, $columns)
  • mapCols($method)
  • mapRowsArr($method, $rows)
  • mapRows($method)

DynamicHtml\DynamicTagsShort

A helper to accessing DynamicTags, only with the short tag configured(by setting $content to false)

Example Usage

use \DynamicHtml\DynamicTagsShort as DTS;

echo DTS::br();
// without this class, we'd have to type:
// echo DT::br(null, false);

Methods

  • __callStatic($method, $args)

DynamicHtml\DynamicTagsHelper

Lastly, we have the a helper class, though useful, can also be seen as an example class. Provides a showcase of methods extending DynamicTags.

Example Usage

use \DynamicHtml\DynamicTagsHelper as DTH;

echo DTH::hyperlink('http://...', null, 'one');
echo DTH::table([
	['1', '2', '3'],
	['2', '3', '1'],
]);

Methods

  • stylesheet($href, $attr=null)
  • hyperlink($href, $attr=null, $content=true)
  • table($body_rows, $head_fields=null)
  • tableHead($fields)
  • tableHeadRow($fields)
  • tableBody($rows)
  • tableBodyRow($fields)
