It's MORPHLING time! *plays power ranger theme song. pun intended 😂

Contents

Filters

  • morph-age
  • morph-capitalize
  • morph-chop
  • morph-currency
  • morph-date REMOVED
  • morph-date-format NEW

Installation

NPM
npm install vue-morphling --save
Yarn
yarn add vue-morphling
CDN
https://unpkg.com/vue-morphling/dist/vue-morphling.js

Usage

import Vue from 'vue';
import { VueMorphling } from 'vue-morphling';
// Use all filters and directives.
Vue.use(VueMorphling);
or
import Vue from 'vue';
import { morphDate, vMorphHighlight, morphLowerCase } from 'vue-morphling';
// Import only what you need.
Vue.use(morphDate);
Vue.use(vMorphHighlight);
Vue.use(morphLowerCase);
or
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/vue/2.4.4/vue.js"></script>
<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue-morphling/dist/vue-morphling.js"></script>
<script>
Vue.use(VueMorphling.VueMorphling); // Use all
// Or
Vue.use(VueMorphling.morphDate); // Use morh-date filter only;
Vue.use(VueMorphling.vMorphHighlight); // Use v-morh-highlight directive only;
// Vue stuff here
</script>
All filters are available in the Vue instance as well, so they can d as vm.$morphCapitalize or this.$morphCapitalize if you are using single-file component.
All directive names should be prepended with v-, v-morph-url like so.

Morphling Filters

morph-date

morph-date has been removed see morph-date-format for the updated date formatting method. I removed this to give way to future morph-date-[foo] methods such as e.g. morph-date-diff-minutes.

morph-date-format

import { morphDateFormat } from 'vue-morphling';
Format any valid date using date-fns' format() function.
Syntax
morph-date-format(format)
Note - morph-date-format is now using using [email protected].
<p>{{ new Date() | morph-date-format('MMM DD, YYYY') }}</p>
<!-- Jul 26, 2017 -->
<p>{{ new Date() | morph-date-format('YYYY') }}</p>
<!-- 2017 -->
<p>{{ new Date() | morph-date-format('[Today is a] dddd') }}</p>
<!-- Today is Wednesday -->
const date = new Date('1976-03-20');
const formatted = this.$morphDateFormat(date, 'MMM DD, YYYY');
const year = this.$morphDateFormat(date, 'YYYY');
const time = this.$morphDateFormat(new Date(), 'hh:mm A');
console.log(formatted); // Mar 20, 1976
console.log(year); // 1976
console.log(time); // 11:00 PM
API
All formats are available of course in the date-fns format documentation, but here are some common examples.

Morphling Directives

morph-url

import { vMorphUrl } from 'vue-morphling';
morph-url is currently in experimental stage. The current version has some limitations:
  1. 1.
    When a link/url appears twice in the string it will mess up the tags.
morph-url directive converts every link in a given element to an <a> tag.
Usage
v-morph-url, prepend v- to any directive name.
Before morphling
<p>
My favorite websites are https://9gag.com and https://greenfox.me
</p>
After morphling
<p v-morph-url>
My favorite websites are <a href="https://9gag.com" target="_blank">https://9gag.com</a> and <a href="https://greenfox.me" target="_blank">https://greenfox.me</a>
</p>

morph-highlight

import { vMorphHighlight } from 'vue-morphling';
This directive will highlight the any matching string with a color of your choice! Yep, just like a highlighter pen.
Usage
v-morph-highlight, prepend v- to any directive name.
Pass the params as string, like, 'cats::#7fad33' use :: as separator for the string to be highlighted and color. Syntax 'string::color' where string is any string and color is any color, hex color, rgb and rgba.
Before morphling
<p>
Cats are the best dogs! I love cats!
</p>
After morphling
<p v-morph-highlight="'cats::#7fad33'">
Cats are the best dogs! I love cats!
</p>

"When my time comes, Forget the wrong that I've done, Help me leave behind some, Reasons to be missed, Don't resent me, And when you're feeling empty, Keep me in your memory, Leave out all the rest..."
In Memory of Chester Bennington (1976-2017)
I used Linkin Park songs as example strings to pay tribute to the death of Chester Bennington. One of my inspirations in music. Depression is very real, we may not fully understand it but it is very, very real. Talk to your loved ones, and cherish every moment with them. Happy coding.
