by osban

Level: beginner • Mithril.js Version: latest

This is an example that shows, how to use a minimal Layout component with a simplified header and footer section together with a minimal Page component, that is responsible for rendering the content section. The example is greatly simplified, but shows the basic use case.

Live Example


Type Name URL


const layout = {
  view: v =>
      m('.header', 'HEADER'),
      m('.footer', 'FOOTER')

const page = {
  view: () => m('p', 'page')

m.route(document.body, '/', {
  '/': {render: () => m(layout, m(page))}

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.route API method.
