Counter from 7GUIs

by narayand16

Level: beginner • Mithril.js Version: latest

This is the 7GUIs counter example implemented in Mithril.js. The challenge here is to understand the basic ideas of a language/toolkit.

The task is to build a frame containing a label or read-only textfield T and a button B. Initially, the value in T is “0” and each click of B increases the value in T by one.

See the original description at the 7GUIs homepage:

Live Example


Type Name URL


let root = document.body
let count = 0

let Counter = {
  view: function() {
    return m("main", [
      m("input[readonly=true]", {
        value: count
      m("button", {
        onclick: function() {count++}
      }, "Count")

m.mount(root, Counter)


<!doctype html>
<html lang=en>
  <meta charset=utf-8>

The snippet is using the most current version of Mithril.js framework. It is aimed at beginners and shows some basic recipes.

In addition to the Mithril.js hyperscript function m(), here we can see an example of Mithril.js' m.mount API method.
