by osban

Level: beginner • Mithril.js Version: latest

This is an example showing a very simple JavaScript closure for state management. The example shows a list that can be expanded by one item by clicking the add button. Handling state with JavaScript closures is one of the recommended ways in Mithril.js.

Live Example


Type Name URL


const Foo = () => {
  const els = ["first item"]

  return {
    view: () => [
      m('button', {
        onclick: () => {els.push('another item')}
      }, 'add item'),

      m('ul', => m('li', item)))

m.mount(document.body, Foo)

The snippet requires the latest version of Mithril.js framework. It is ideal for beginners showing some basic recipes.

In this example we can see an example of Mithril.js' m.mount API method, besides it core m() hyperscript function.
