A missing connection between Haunted and LitElement.

It makes it possible to use LitElement's features like properties and styles in Haunted.

This project follows the open-wc recommendation.


npm i haunted-lit-element


This library provides component function that is made in the way as it is in Haunted.


Similar to haunted but the base class is LitElement:

import {html} from 'lit-html';
import {component} from 'haunted-lit-element';
window.customElements.define('my-el', component(() => html`hello world`));

component(MyEl, optsOrBaseCls)

The second parameter in component function can be options or a base class which should be derived from HauntedLitElement.

The options in most cases are properties and styles from LitElement. But it can actually be anything as at the end it is just a static field in the base class. It is done in that way because there are LitElement extensions that use similar approach with their own configuration.

Example of defining options as second argument:

import {css} from 'lit-element';
import {component} from 'haunted-lit-element';

const MyEl = () => { /*...*/ };

const properties = {myParam: {type: String}, /*...*/};
const styles = css`/* my css styles */`;

window.customElements.define('my-el', component(MyEl, {properties, styles}));

Example of defining base class as second argument:

import {component, HauntedLitElement} from 'haunted-lit-element';

class MyExtHauntedLitElement extends HauntedLitElement {
    // ... my own stuff

const MyEl = () => { /*...*/ };

window.customElements.define('my-el', component(MyEl, MyExtHauntedLitElement));

component(myEl, baseCls, opts)

If you want to use options and a base class than the base class is the second argument and options are the third.

Example of using LitElement's properties and styles helper with a custom base class.

  mystring="hello world"

<script type="module">
    import {useState} from "haunted";
    import {css, html} from "lit-element";
    import {component, HauntedLitElement} from "haunted-lit-element";

    class MyExtLitElement extends HauntedLitElement {
        // ... my own stuff

    const renderer = ({mystring, mynumber, mybool, myobj, myarray}) => {
        const [count, setCount] = useState(0);
        return html`
            <button @click=${() => setCount(count + 1)}>+</button>
                typeof mystring = ${typeof mystring}
                typeof mynumber = ${typeof mynumber}
                typeof mybool = ${typeof mybool}
                typeof myobj = ${typeof myobj}
                Array.isArray(myarray) = ${Array.isArray(myarray)}

    /** LitElement's Properties */
    const properties = {
        mystring: {type: String},
        mynumber: {type: Number},
        mybool: {type: Boolean},
        myobj: {type: Object},
        myarray: {type: Array}
    /** LitElement's css helper function */
    const styles = css`p {color:red}`;
    window.customElements.define('my-el', component(renderer, {properties, styles}, MyExtLitElement));

The output for properties is going to be:

typeof mystring = string
typeof mynumber = number
typeof mybool = boolean
typeof myobj = object
Array.isArray(myarray) = true
