Map to JavaScript in HTML

Build Status Build status

This is a library for serializing a (hash) map to JavaScript code in HTML, usually for dynamically generating strings on web pages.


In your HTML or templates to generate HTML, such as Handlebars, for instance,

var _text = {};

Then, you can use this crate to insert your text into JavaScript code in HTML,

extern crate map_to_javascript_html;

use map_to_javascript_html::hash_map_to_javascript_html;
use std::collections::HashMap;

let mut map = HashMap::new();

map.insert("hello", "Hello world!");
map.insert("welcome", "Welcome to my website.");
map.insert("other keys", "Hello world!");

let text = hash_map_to_javascript_html(&map, "_text", &["welcome", "hello"]).unwrap();

If you want your text to be beautified, you can use hash_map_to_javascript_html_beautify function.

After Handlebars replaces {{{text}}} with your text, the HTML will be,

var _text = {};
_text['welcome']='Welcome to my website.';_text['hello']='Hello world!';

The key and the value used in a map must implement the Display trait.

By the way, the text_to_javascript_html function can be useful when you just want to insert text as a JavaScript string into your HTML code.
