element template

const P = g({ ...some attrs }, 'p')  // p tag template

const p1 = P('content1')
const p2 = P('content2')     // p1 and p2 got the same attributes

specified style attribute

// string is allowed in style attr
const el = g({
    style: 'top: 1px; left: 1px'

// object is also allowed
const el = g({
    style: {
        top: '1px',
        left: '1px'

work with css-in-js

import { css } from 'emotion'  // css-modules, auto-prefixer
import { g } from 'gelerator'

const isIOS = /iPad|iPhone|iPod/.test(window.navigator.userAgent)
const paraClass = css`
  font-size: ${isIOS ? 18 : 14}px;

const el = g(paraClass)('content')  // div writes everything

generate list by array

const arr = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']

// es6
const ctnr = g('ctnr', 'ol')(, idx) => g({}, 'li')(item))

// es5
const ctnr = g('ctnr', 'ol').apply(
    this,, idx) {
      return g({}, 'li')(item)

element with data-x attributes

const arr = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']

// attribute start with $ will change into data-
const ctnr = g('ctnr', 'ol')(, idx) => g({
      $index: idx,                  // $index -> data-index
      $item: item                   // $item -> data-item
    }, 'li')())


g(attr[, tag])(arg1[, arg2[, ...]])


attr Type: String | Object

If String were given, it'll be tag's className. Otherwise, generate Object as the tag's attributes. Especially, object key start with $ would turn into data- attribute. For style key, both string and object are available.

tag Type: String

Tag's tagName, default as DIV

arg1, arg2, ... Type: String | Node

if String were given, it'll be tag's innerText. Otherwise, append Node to the tag. For IMG tag only, given String will be this IMG tag's src attribute.
