Dependencies

All components are compatible with CodyFrame, Tailwind CSS or any other CSS framework.

How To

The Repeater Plugin can be used to clone and delete a collection of items.

The element with a class of .js-repeater__item will be repeated each time the user clicks on the .js-repeater__add button; the new element is appended to the .js-repeater__list element.

<div class="js-repeater">
  <ul class="js-repeater__list">
    <li class="js-repeater__item">
      <!-- content to be repeated here -->
    </li>
  </ul>

  <button class="js-repeater__add" type="button">Add More</button>
</div>

Use a button with a class of .js-repeater__remove inside the .js-repeater__item element to have the option of removing clones.

If you want to add a custom class to the cloned elements, add a data-repeater-class attribute to the .js-repeater element:

<div class="js-repeater" data-repeater-class="repeater__item">
  <ul class="js-repeater__list">
    <li class="js-repeater__item">
      <!-- content to be repeated here -->
    </li>
  </ul>

  <button class="js-repeater__add" type="button">Add More</button>
</div>

For example, you can use this class to show the .js-repeater__remove button for clones, while keeping it hidden for the first item.

Form fields repeater #

If you are using this component to clone form fields, then each clone must have input elements with different name/id attributes.

For the plugin to work properly, all your inputs should have name and id values equal to customName[n][inputType], where:

  • customName: a custom label of your choice (same value for all your input elements);
  • n: index of the cloned element (starting from 0);
  • inputType: a custom label that identifies the input.

Add to the .js-repeater element a data-repeater-input-name attribute equal to customName[n].

Here's an example of a repeater for a user name/email block:

<div class="js-repeater" data-repeater-input-name="user[n]">
  <div class="js-repeater__list">
    <fieldset class="js-repeater__item">
      <div>
        <label for="user[0][name]">Name</label>
        <input type="text" name="user[0][name]" id="user[0][name]">
      </div>
  
      <div>
        <label for="user[0][email]">Email</label>
        <input type="email" name="user[0][email]" id="user[0][email]">
      </div>
    </fieldset>

    <!-- example of a cloned element -> [n] is now [1] -->
    <fieldset class="js-repeater__item">
      <div>
        <label for="user[1][name]">Name</label>
        <input type="text" name="user[1][name]" id="user[1][name]">
      </div>
  
      <div>
        <label for="user[1][email]">Email</label>
        <input type="email" name="user[1][email]" id="user[1][email]">
      </div>
    </fieldset>
  </div>

  <button class="btn btn--primary js-repeater__add" type="button">Add More</button>
</div>

Note that we have added a type="button" to the .js-repeater__add element. This will prevent the form from being submitted when the user clicks the button.
