Namespace @swim/webapp

@swim/webapp

package documentation chat

@swim/webapp implements a lightweight web application loader that dynamically instantiates views and controllers declared by swim- HTML attributes. @swim/webapp is part of the @swim/web framework.

Installation

npm

For an npm-managed project, npm install @swim/webapp to make it a dependency. TypeScript sources will be installed into node_modules/@swim/webapp/main. Transpiled JavaScript and TypeScript definition files install into node_modules/@swim/webapp/lib/main. And a pre-built UMD script can be found in node_modules/@swim/webapp/dist/main/swim-webapp.js.

Browser

Browser applications can load swim-web.js—which bundles the @swim/webapp library—along with its swim-core.js and swim-ui.js dependencies, directly from the SwimOS CDN.

<!-- Development -->
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-core.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-ui.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-web.js"></script>

<!-- Production -->
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-core.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-ui.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-web.min.js"></script>

Alternatively, the standalone swim-system.js script may be loaded from the SwimOS CDN, which bundles @swim/webapp together with all other @swim/system libraries.

<!-- Development -->
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-system.js"></script>

<!-- Production -->
<script src="https://cdn.swimos.org/js/latest/swim-system.min.js"></script>

Usage

ES6/TypeScript

@swim/webapp can be imported as an ES6 module from TypeScript and other ES6-compatible environments.

import * as webapp from "@swim/webapp";

CommonJS/Node.js

@swim/webapp can also be used as a CommonJS module in Node.js applications.

var webapp = require("@swim/webapp");

Browser

When loaded by a web browser, the swim-web.js script adds all @swim/webapp library exports to the global swim namespace. The swim-web.js script requires that swim-core.js and swim-ui.js have already been loaded.

The swim-system.js script also adds all @swim/webapp library exports to the global swim namespace, making it a drop-in replacement for 'swim-core.js', swim-ui.js, and swim-web.js when additional @swim/system libraries are needed.
