    What is json2html?

    json2html is a simple but powerful javascript HTML templating library used to transform JSON objects into HTML.

    Why json2html?

    Instead of writing HTML templates json2html relies on JSON transforms to convert a source JSON objects to html. The benefit of using a JSON transform is that they are already readable by the browser/server and DO NOT require any compilation before use. In addition, json2html allows the following:

    • One template (we call transform) that can be used on either a client OR server
    • Short hand notation for mapping data objects to markup ${name}
    • Event binding to DOM objects (with the jquery plugin)
    • Use of inline functions to allow for complex logic during transformation


    Transform (template)

    var transform = 
     {"<>": "li", "id":"${id}", "html":[
        {"<>": "span", "text": "${name} (${year})"}

    Plus JSON Data

    var data = 
     {"id": 1123, "name": "Jack and Jill", "year":2001};

    Will render the following html

    <li id="1123">
        <span>Jack and Jill (2001)</span>
