Future plans for SA5 dynamic attributes

<script> based transforms

Generate an attribute from a specially-typed script block within it, with the purpose being to;

  • Easily mix static text and dynamic attributes

  • Support larger strings, e.g. JSON chunks

  • Resolve attribute content limitations in Webflow

    • Inability to include double-quotes " in content

  • Resolve attribute name limitations in Webflow

Targeting can be parent, prev sibling or next sibling, or a target element(?) with an SA5 identifier


Supporting JSON chunks in the designer

&quot; /x0022

Ideally design this so that it can also support Hyperflow processing.


Dynamic Attributes are likely to become a facet of a larger SA5 concept we'll call DOM Transforms. Transforms allow for broad changes to happen, and have a specific instructional paradigm;

  • What to target, relative to the transform's position- useful for collection lists.

  • What kind of transformation to do.

  • The data needed for the transformation

For example


  • Targeting

    • target

    • selector

    • attr

  • Transform

    • transform = append | replace | prepend, etc

  • Data

    • val = (value)

      • Typically a field embed. This would be HTML encoded

    • decode = html | none

    • encode

We're looking at adding

// Some code
<script type="sa5:transform:attr"
   val="{{wf {&quot;path&quot;:&quot;name&quot;,&quot;type&quot;:&quot;PlainText&quot;\} }}"
