Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save handlebars-utils

Usage

var utils = require('handlebars-utils');

API

.isBlock

Returns true if a helper is a block helper.

Params

  • options {Object}: Helper options object
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(options) {
  if (utils.isBlock(options)) {
    // do something if this is a block helper
  } else {
    // do something else if this is a not block helper
  }
});

.fn

Returns the given value or renders the block if it's a block helper.

Params

  • val {any}
  • options {Object}
  • context {Object}
  • returns {String}: Either returns the value, or renders the block.

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(val, locals, options) {
  return utils.fn(val, locals, options);
});

.inverse

Returns the given value or renders the inverse block if it's a block helper.

Params

  • val {any}
  • options {Object}
  • context {Object}
  • returns {String}: Either returns the value, or renders the inverse block.

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(val, locals, options) {
  return utils.inverse(val, locals, options);
});

.value

Gets the return value for a helper, by either rendering the block or inverse block if it's a block helper, or returning the given value (when truthy) or an empty string (when falsey) if it's a non-block expression.

Params

  • val {any}
  • options {Object}
  • context {Object}
  • returns {String}

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(val, locals, options) {
  return utils.value(val, locals, options);
});

.isOptions

Returns true if the given value is a handlebar options object.

Params

  • val {Object}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(val, locals, options) {
  if (utils.isOptions(locals)) {
    options = locals;
    locals = {};
  }
  // do stuff
});

.isUndefined

Returns true if the given value is undefined or is a handlebars options hash (which means that a value was not passed by the user).

Params

  • value {any}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(val, options) {
  if (utils.isUndefined(val)) {
    return '';
  }
  // do stuff
});

.isApp

Returns true if an app propery is on the context, which means the context was created by assemble, templates, verb, or any other library that follows this convention.

Params

  • value {any}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

Handlebars.registerHelper('example', function(val, options) {
  var context = options.hash;
  if (utils.isApp(this)) {
    context = Object.assign({}, this.context, context);
  }
  // do stuff
});

.options

Creates an options object from the context, locals and options. Handlebars' options.hash is merged onto the options, and if the context is created by templates, this.options will be merged onto the options as well.

Params

  • context {Object}
  • locals {Object}: Options or locals
  • options {Object}
  • returns {Boolean}

.context

Get the context to use for rendering.

Params

  • thisArg {Object}: Optional invocation context this
  • returns {Object}

.isObject

Returns true if the given value is an object.

Params

  • val {Object}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

console.log(utils.isObject(null));
//=> false
console.log(utils.isObject([]));
//=> false
console.log(utils.isObject(function() {}));
//=> false
console.log(utils.isObject({}));
//=> true

.isEmpty

Returns true if the given value is "empty".

Params

  • value {any}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

console.log(utils.isEmpty(0));
//=> false
console.log(utils.isEmpty(''));
//=> true
console.log(utils.isEmpty([]));
//=> true
console.log(utils.isEmpty({}));
//=> true

.result

Returns the given value. If the value is a function it will be called with the current context, otherwise the value is returned.

Params

  • val {any}
  • returns {any}

Example

console.log(utils.result('foo'));
//=> 'foo'
console.log(utils.result(function() {
  return 'foo';
}));
//=> 'foo'

.identity

Returns the given value as-is, unchanged.

Params

  • val {any}
  • returns {any}

Example

console.log(utils.result('foo'));
//=> 'foo'
console.log(utils.result(function() {
  return 'foo';
}));
//=> [function]

.isString

Return true if val is a non-empty string.

Params

  • val {any}: The value to check
  • returns {Boolean}

.arrayify

Cast the given val to an array.

Params

  • val {any}
  • returns {Array}

Example

console.log(utils.arrayify(''));
//=> []
console.log(utils.arrayify('foo'));
//=> ['foo']
console.log(utils.arrayify(['foo']));
//=> ['foo']

.tryParse

Try to parse the given string as JSON. Fails gracefully and always returns an object if the value cannot be parsed.

Params

  • string {String}
  • returns {Object}
