nano JavaScript framework http://www.nanojs.org Copyright (c) 2008-2012 James Watts (SOLFENIX) http://www.solfenix.com This is FREE software, licensed under the GNU/GPL http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html nano is a light-weight JavaScript framework for building rich UI in web applications. Its highly extensible design lets you easily add your own functionality to the API with plugins. To use the nano JavaScript framework on your website include it in the HEAD of the document: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/> <title>My Site</title> <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/nano.js"></script> </head> <body> <!-- your content here --> </body> </html> If you're also using plugins with the framework remember that they must be included after the core API. The nano() function is the base of the framework. It allows you to implement the core functionalities of the API depending on the type of data passed. The function receives a single argument, whcih can be any of the following data types: id [string] (wraps the element with the specified ID with the API) element [node] (wraps the given DOM node with the API) parameters [object] (creates a new element using the parameters object) onload [function] (registers the function to the document onload event) To locate an element with the ID "example", just call the nano() function with that ID. Once the element is found it is wrapped in the API. For example, the following finds the element with the ID "example" and adds the class "test" to it: nano('example').addClass('test'); If you already have a DOM node and want to wrap it with the API, just pass the node object instead of the ID. This will return the same DOM node wrapped with the API functionality. When a DOM node is wrapped with the API, the reference to the original element can be found in the node property. The nano object is also the global namespace for the API. All the general purpose functions of the framework are accessed from this object. For example, the following finds all the elements with the specified class and hides each one of them: nano.find('css', 'test').each(function() { this.hide(); }); To create new elements you need to call the nano() function as a constructor, using the new keyword. When called as a constructor, the function expects the argument to be an object containing the parameters to use. The following example creates a new DIV element with the content "This is an example", and attaches it to the BODY of the document: var div = new nano({ tag : 'div', parent: nano.body(), text : 'This is an example' }); Remember, you should only attach new nodes or modify the DOM once the document has fully loaded. To do this, always call functions which modify the DOM upon page load by passing a function as the argument which contains those calls. You can register as many functions to the onload of the document as you require. nano(function() { nano.body().add({ tag : 'span', text: 'I was added!' }); }); Visit http://www.nanojs.org for more information.
