Vegana

Vegana is a js framework to build single page apps with native support of a defined document structure for ease of developemnt in big teams, code sharing, native and fast lazyness for a smooth browsing experience and native js web api plugins for ease of use and faster development speeds.basic concept is to reduce final bundle size and break the bundle based on a document structure making the browsing experience smooth and fast.

  • tiny and broken up document structure
  • native lazyness with super fast loading and web api plugins.
  • native api framework support with rocket iron and wet.
  • only js and sass develoment enviorment to speed up development multitudes of time.
  • prebuilt native components and upcoming support for web compoenets.
  • defined code structure to make onboarding new devs easy for big teams.
  • native nodejs cli with cross platform support.
  • non defined sass data structure.

When to use!

  • if your project is big and you need the website to load in under a sec.
  • if you have a big team and want to develop something fast with easy of dev onboarding
  • if your project is with multiple use heavy pages.
  • if your project use an api.
  • if you dont want breaking changes in upcoming updates in app or in cli.
  • if you have prebuilt sass or css style sheet.

Before you start

  • please get yourself familiar with atleast js css and sass.
  • get a little bit familiar with concepts of js api's, npm libraries, size of final bundle and component laziness.
  • get familier with nodejs and npm.
  • installing npm module as a global app.
  • efficiency of js data structures.
  • read the document structure docs.

latest features

  • comps are now lazy too.
  • lazy loader now has hooks to call functions when lazy modules are loaded and ready to use.
  • engine is optimized with vegana native comps.
  • now you can make span in dom module.

this framework is a js and sass only enviorment please dont get confused in finding where to place the html.

official docs at Docs



Installation

  • install node js here NodeJs
  • make sure npm is installed.
  • install vegana as a global module $ npm i --global vegana
  • check if vegana is installed globally $ vegana check


Index



Cli

Vegana cli is a nodejs based cli app and gives a cross platform uniform experience. the goal with cli was to make a fast developement enviorment by doing all the heavy lifting like live reloading, final app building and optimization image optimization ,component generation and inbuilt server for development.

features

  • Inbuilt Server with Live Reloading
  • Live sass compilation
  • Native app building and code and image optimization.
  • Fast Component generation and auto lazy componet integration.

Commands

Initiate a new Project

this shell command generates the files required by the vegana framework in current working directory or the directory where you have called the command. in other words make the directory with project name and initiate the project inside the new directory.

$ vegana init test

here test is the project name.


Serve the Project Generated

this command starts a server and compiles the app files and serves a built app to the browser. Vegana use the port 5566 to start the server at and currently cannot use any other port please make sure the port is not in use while you serve the app. this app listens for file chnages in the app directory and re buods the app as nessesery. the app is optimized to reload only the compoent rebuild you should not have any issue with the optimization either.the bundle served is non optimized for faster builds and does not represent the final bundle size.

$ vegana serve

you can now start you app development. the app comes with a test document which can be removed or worked around your choice.


Build the Project

this app builds a optimized version of you app with app the lazy components integrated in the build folder the build folder is now ready to be deployed to any server.the code generated cannot be used for further generated so please keep you app sources code backed up for future development.

$ vegana build

Generate Components

this command generates a predined set of components please read the component docs before hand to understand the proper and optimized use of em.

Generate a Page

this command generates a page ocmponets and takes page name and lazziness flag as argument please make sure you are running this command in the app/pages folder for it to work. if page name is repeated i guess the query fails if not a folder with page name will be generated with a page.js file inside of it all the further page componets have to be built inside of the page folder.this mod can be routed inside the page router.

$ vegana generate page home --lazy

here the page name is home and the lazy flag integartes the component as a lazy one. you dont have to use the lazy flag if the page is not lazy.

Generate a Cont

this command have to be called inside the page folder 'app/page/homePage/' and generates and cont mod inside a folder names cont in page direcoty. again the format is same and this component is also lazy and can be loaded when is required by the user.this component can be routed inside the page in cont router.

$ vegana generate cont home --lazy

this componet cannot be shared with other pages.

Generate a Panel

this module can be generated inside a cont and can be routed in the panel router with the cont module.this command generated the panel file insde a panel folder with the cont folder 'app/pages/homePage/cont/mainCont/panels/mainPanel/panel.js' with a panel js file insdie of it.

$ vegana generate panel main --lazy

Generate a Component

this module can be genearted in any of the other modules and can be shared inbetween other modules by making itself global within the app. this module cannot be lazy and is to be available whenever is called. is have to be called within the app folder to work.

$ vegana generate comp menu

where menu is the name of the component generated. this can be used by multiple pages.



Vegana Document Structure

Vegana follows a predifined nesting document structure which allows the final bundle to be broken up into multiple lazy modules which can be loaded whenever is requires by the user this makes the final bundle very light, making experience of browsing through the app smooth and fast.the initial page load is also super fast which makes the user experience even better.

Page Module

this is the top level module and is routable in the page router.this can be a contact page, home page,login page or singup page and can be loaded to the app as required.the app needs to contain atleast one page module. all the further mods are nested inside of it. this module is required to be generated inside the app/pages folder to work. page module can call vegana apis to make html and vegana dom elements.

file structure

this module consist of constants with the page name and page id varibales with a init function this function is called whenever a page is to be loaded the page module automatically integrates itself into the app bundle once is required in the nodejs code or the lazy loader more will be provided on this in the routing system docs. you need to code your app within the init function and call any further functions from it user defined function are not globally available. constants modules are required to be called from outside the init function so then can be included in the final bundle.


Cont Module

this module is nested inside of the page module directory and is routable in the cont router each page has its own cont router and any route request for conts is treated to be on the activated page.this cont can be used for diffrent features of a page like tabs which does diffrent things for example a home page on instagram have search cont, feed cont or user account cont.which can be loaded as required.

file structure

file structure is mainly similar design wise execpt this module defines the page id and page name too and exists inside the parent page directory.any arguments require by the module can be passed in through the init function by the parent page or can be transferred through the native vegana data managemnt system.


Panel Module

this module is nested inside the cont module and is routable through panel router. each cont have a unique panel router and each panel route query is processed for the activated cont module.these can be used for diffrent tabs inside the user info section like followers albums and such.

file structure

file structure is mainly similar design wise execpt this module defines the cont id and name too and exists inside the parent cont directory.any arguments require by the module can be passed in through the init function by the parent cont or can be transferred through the native vegana data managemnt system.


Comp Module

this module is a static part of any of the other modules and can be shared inbetween them, this module have a native routing system too if required by the app.this is not a lazy module and is required to be a part of any other module.

file structure

file structure is mainly similar design wise, this mod exists inside the parent mod directory.any arguments require by the module can be passed in through the init function by the parent mod or can be transferred through the native vegana data managemnt system.



Vegana App Structure



Vegana engine Apis

Vegana engine is the core vegana apis which enables devs to build pure js html elements like divs, inputs, images, links and buttons,make http api requestes, manage data stored locally on user's browser control js apis with easy to use plugins,apply lazy modules, authentication and routing systems.

Vegana Routing System

Vegana use a module based routing system with uniqe router for each module type. page,cont and panel mods can be lazy and loaded whenever is required, comp module have a native routing system too but cannot be lazy loaded. page,cont and panel modules are nested inside by the order defined in the document structure first page mod then cont module is nested within the page router in the cont router each page consist of its unique cont router and can only be called once.panel router is same and is nested within the cont with its own unique panel router which can be called only once.comp router can be called as many times as the app requires it to within it self.

routing system have the following apis

  • router apis
    • router init
    • navigate
    • get
    • set
  • lazy loader apis
    • load
      • page
      • cont
      • panel
    • css

Router Apis

Router Init Apis

these apis init diffrent routers in diff mods

Conts Router Init

this api initiates a cont router on a page module this api can only be called once and returns the div id of the router div on current page.

engine.conts.init(pageId);

this function should only be called on the page module with the pageId as input. pageId is predefined on the page module.

Panels Router Init

this api initiates a cont router on a Cont module this api can only be called once and returns the div id of the router div on current Cont.

engine.panels.init(contId);

this function should only be called on the Cont module with the contId as input. contId is predefined on the Cont module.

Comps Router Init

this api initiates a comp router on any other module this api can be called multiple times and returns the div id of the router div.this api takes parent mod's id, comp module which is to be activated and the data which is needed to be transafered.

//engine.router.comps.init(pageId,pageModule,any_data);
let pageModule = engine.router.get.pageModule("homePage");
engine.router.comps.init(pageId,pageModule,{user_exists:true});

data is a optional argument in this module.

this function should only be called on the Cont module with the contId as input. contId is predefined on the Cont module.


Router Navigate

these apis navigate mods through there routers. this api have two options if you wanna recreate a module you can call the new function or if you just wanna navigate to a prebuilt module just call the to option of the api.

To Navigate Api

this api navigates to prebuilt module or builts a module if it doent exists and navigates to it.this api navigates in between page,cont,panel and comp modules. nested modules only need module and data to navigate but comp navigation router takes the router if which is returned when comp router is initated.the data argument is optional.

engine.router.navigate.to.page(pageModule,any_data);
engine.router.navigate.to.cont(contModule,any_data);
engine.router.navigate.to.panel(panelModule,any_data);

engine.router.get.contModule(pageName,contName,panelName);

Get Base Href

this argument fetches the base href url of the app. this is generally setuped on the index.js page in the app dirctory.this function does not take any argument and returns a string.

engine.router.get.baseHref();

Router Set

these apis integrate modules to the base app.there are many sub apis in this set but you will only use one rest are for module integration and you dont wannna use em they are already automated.

Set Base Href

this argument sets the base href if you are going to host the app in a sub directory i mean you can do it. if you wanna fetch something manually.this function takes the hosting directory path without the '/' at the begnning of the address.

//engine.router.set.baseHref(path_as_string);
engine.router.set.baseHref('home/test/');


Lazy Loader Apis

these apis fetch lazy modules and files when you need em.all of these are async and returns a error if the files are not found.

Lazy Load Page Module

this api fetches the lazy page and takes the pageName as a argument and resolves it the page is successfully loaded or returns a error if not.

engine.loader.load.page('testPage')
.then(()=>{
    console.log('fetched');
})
.catch((error)=>{
    console.log(error);
})

Lazy Load Cont Module

this api fetches the lazy Cont and takes the pageName and contName as arguments and resolves it the cont is successfully loaded or returns a error if not.

})
.catch((error)=>{
    console.log(error);
})

Lazy Load Panel Module

this api fetches the lazy page and takes the pageName,contName and panelName as arguments and resolves it the panel is successfully loaded or returns a error if not.

Vegana view Api

these apis hides and shows the div or any html dom element or the custom elements.

Show Element Api

this api sets the display style property of any html dom element to block to make the element visible.

engine.view.show(id);

Hide Element Api

this api sets the display style property of any html dom element to none to make the element hidden. now here is a bug in here if you hide a element you cannot get the elements height and width so keep that in mind while playing around.

engine.view.hide(id);


Vegana Session Api

this api handles a user session.

Start a Session

this api start a session with the folowing arguments

engine.session.start(token,user,uid);

here token have to be a string user can be a json or a string and uid can be passed if you want it.only token is required to start a session through.

Check a Session

this api checks if a session is started.

engine.session.check();

this function returns a boolean.

End a Session

this api checks if a session is started.

engine.session.end();

this function returns a boolean.

Get Session Params

this api checks if a session is started.

engine.session.get.token();
engine.session.get.user();
engine.session.get.uid();

token is returned as a string or a null object user gets returnd as a string json or null object and uid is a string or a null object too.



Vegana Validate Api

this api validates json and email id if you need to do it.

Validate Json

this api validates if a varibale is a json object and checks its keys and the data type that the key holds if you need to verify a json object.and takes the following params.

//check if a user object is valid
let user = {
    name:'akku',
    mobile:6665556665
};

let schema = {
    name:{type:"string",min:5,max:255},
    mobile:{type:"number",min:6500100100,max:9999899899}
};

engine.validate.json(schema,user,'dynamic',2048);
//engine.validate.json(schema,data,json_type,max_keys);
//returns a bool and console logs an error

api takes the following arguments schema, data, json type and max keys.

Schema

this is the validation scheme for the data its an object of objects with the key to be matched with the key in data. the value of the key are the validation parameters to be checked which are data type,min and max length and elective.data type can be string,number,object,boolean and email.

min&max properties on string is chekced on the length of the string. min&max properties on number will be checked by '>' & '<' operator. min&max properties on object will be checked on the number of keys in a object. min&max properties on array will be check on the length of the array.

the elective tag makes a key elective meaning if the key doesnt exists on the data the validation will not fail.this param hold a boolean as a value

{type:"string",min:3,max:3000,elective:true},
{type:'boolean'},
{type:"string"},

all of these are valid.if no min and max properties are passed no checks will be performend on min and max property.boolean does support the elective property.

Data

this is the json object which will be validated with the scheme.

Validation Type

data can be hard checked meaning if any of the key is missing from the data the validation will be failed.but if your data is a little bit dynamic then you can check for the available keys or the nessesery keys by passing a elective param with a boolean in the schema object of the key,this will allow the json to be validated if the key dosent exists.validation types are static and dynamic.

Max Data Keys

this property checks the number of keys if the validation type is dynamic.please check the number of keys to be protective.


Validate a Email

this api validates if a stirng is a valid email or not.

engine.validate.email("akku@world.earth");
//this returns a bool


Vegana Http Request Api

this api makes http requests via the fetch web standard api and takes the following arguments.

        name:'akku'
    },
    headers:[{country:india}],
});

methods are standard http methods get post etc,url is a valid http url,body can be a empty json obejct and headers should be a array of objects with he key as header tag and value as the value of the header tag.



Wet Vegana Api
