# Head Component

A native web component for everything which might go in the <head> of your document.

# Install

npm i html-head-component

# or

yarn add html-head-component

# Usage

In your JavaScript/TypeScript entry point:

import 'html-head-component';

You can also include the web component directly from unpkg.com:

import('https://unpkg.com/html-head-component');

or

<script async src="https://unpkg.com/html-head-component"></script>

Then add the component in your HTML/JSX markup:

using the data attribute

<html-head-component
	data='
[
	{
		"tag": "title",
		"content": "Title"
	},
	{
		"tag": "meta",
		"name": "author",
		"content": "Scriptex"
	},
	{
		"tag": "link",
		"rel": "stylesheet",
		"href": "./style.css"
	}
]
'
></html-head-component>

or using the src attribute

<html-head-component src="./data.json"></html-head-component>

# Usage details

The web component accepts two attributes:

  • src which is a valid path to a JSON file containing array of objects.
  • data which is a valid JSON string which represents an array of objects.

Only one of those attributes should be used. If both are used, the src attribute overwrites the data attribute.

Each object in the JSON array should have a tag property which specifies the HTML element which will be rendered.

The rest of the properties in the object specify the attributes and their content in key:value pairs (attribute:attribute-content).

There are several exceptions:

  1. The document title's content is rendered as innerHTML of the <title> tag.
  2. Each style tag's content property will be rendered as innerHTML of the <style> tag.
  3. Each script tag's content property will be rendered as innerHTML of the <script> tag.
  4. Each noscript tag's content property will be rendered as innerHTML of the <noscript> tag.

# React with TypeScript

If you're using React with TypeScript, you need to extends the JSX IntrinsicElements interface so TypeScript knows that the html-head-component element exists.

You can do so in a custom.d.ts file in your project's root folder. Don't forget to add that file in your tsconfig.json!

declare namespace JSX {
	interface IntrinsicElements {
		html-head-component: any;
	}
}
