re: Beyond appendChild: Better convenience methods for HTML VIEW POST


It never occurred to me to create new elements with object assign. πŸ”₯ I always created the element then added properties and attributes after.


I nearly didn't include this oneβ€”it was added last. But I've seen a few people remark on how neat it is in some of my codebases, so I'm glad to share? 🀷


It's so useful when adding a bunch of properties to .style πŸ™‚

Object.assign(, {
 left: x + 'px',
 top: y + 'px'

I made a little helper function based on your example @samthor which also handles inline styles. Thought I'd share here in case anyone else finds it useful. So the only thing else I added was handling inline style and wrapped it all into a function.
