NPM Module classList-helper version 1.1.

classList update

I’ve just updated the npm module  to 1.1. It now has full unit testing.


A Element.classList method helper function that can be curried for functional programing.


Task: Add the class active to all list elements.

  <li class="item">item</li>
  <li class="item">item</li>
  <li class="item">item</li>
  <li class="item">item</li>


// import various libs
import { map, curry } from 'lodash';
let classListHelper = require('classlist-helper');

// Get the list of elements that you want to change
let nodeList = document.querySelectorAll('.item'); // 4 html elements


// Create Active method with classListHelper.
let setActive = curry(classlistHelper)('active')('add');

// Set all elements to Active.
map(nodeList, setActive);

After running this, the html will look like:

  <li class="item active">item</li>
  <li class="item active">item</li>
  <li class="item active">item</li>
  <li class="item active">item</li>

Other example methods

// Remove a Class
let setInActive = curry(classlistHelper)('active')('remove');

// Add a Class
let setActive = curry(classlistHelper)('active')('add');

// Toggle a class 
let toggleActive = curry(classlistHelper)('active')('toggle');

// Add multiple classes / Pass an Array
let setMultiple = curry(classlistHelper)(['active','updated'])('add');

// Test all elements in an Array for a class
let anyActive = curry(classlistHelper)('active')('contains');

// Replace a class with another.
let setInactive = curry(classlistHelper)(['active', 'inactive'])('replace');

Note: For more examples please check the unit tests.

npm browser-classes

I’ve just released version 1.0.1 of a new npm module browser-classes.


Adds browser classes to document body. For better cross-browser SCSS styling.

This library adds the current browser and version to the <body> tag as a class to the site.

Once you run the class, your <body> tag will have the following class added.

<body class="browser-firefox-65">
<body class="browser-ie-10">


npm i --save browser-classes


import BrowserClasses from 'browser-classes';
new BrowserClasses();

SCSS Usage

Use the @at-root method when using with SCSS

.myClass {
    color: red;
    @at-root .browser-ie-10 {
        color: blue

This will target Internet Explorer 10 with browser-ie-10 added to the body tag.

<body class="browser-ie-10">

Javascript usage

The below method can test for Internet Explorer 9

if (document.body.classList.contains('browser-ie-9')) {
    // fix

Browser only targeting

To target only a certain browser not by version use the following syntax.

body[class^="browser-firefox"] {
    color: red;

Browser Support

Currently, this library identifies the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Edge
  • Safari
  • Firefox

Example class names for browsers

Below are some examples of the classes that will be generated for the browsers.

Browser Class
Internet Explorer 10 <body class="browser-ie-10">
Edge 12 <body class="browser-edge-12">
Google Chrome 50 <body class="browser-chrome-50">
Firefox 60 <body class="browser-firefox-60">
Safari 11 <body class="browser-safari-1">

GIT Cheat Sheet

As a front end developer tools like source tree and Webstorm’s GIT GUI are life savers. But sometimes you need to open up the terminal to work with your GIT repo. Over the years I’ve saved a few commands that I use frequently. There are a few commands that will save your bacon on the odd occasion. Below is the GIST that I use and update.

Stories – Alone in the Fallout

Stories have announced that their debut album ‘The Youth To Become‘ will be released on Friday August 14th via UNFD. The album is available to pre-order now from 24Hundred.

The five piece draw influence from post-hardcore, metal, alternative and progressive rock, but never dwell too long on a particular style.

With two brothers guiding the creative process – Nic writes the music and Morgan the lyrics –

“Because we’re brothers, we tend to be on the same sort of track with a lot of our opinions and feelings. This has been the case since I can remember. Since we started writing The Youth To Become, our bond has certainly strengthened more and more, and I definitely feel like we make a good team when working anything creative together.“

The first single from the album is ‘Under Haze‘. You can check out a video for the song below.

“Being the last song we wrote on the album, it took little pieces from each stretch of the record and came together with a pretty dark vibe. We knew right from when we wrote it that it would be a cool song for people to hear first. Lyrically, I feel like I created a strong sense of imagery with this track, and it parallels with the high energy of the sounds.“
