by tbreuss

Level: beginner • Mithril.js Version: latest

This is an example showing nested components using vnode.children.

Live Example


Type Name URL


const Child = {
  view: function(vnode) {
    return m('div',
      m('h3', vnode.attrs.title),
      m('p', vnode.attrs.text)

const Parent = {
  view: function(vnode) {
    return m('div', [
      m('h2', 'Parent Title'),

const App = {
  view: function() {
    return m(Parent, [
      m(Child, { title: 'Child Title 1', text: 'Text Number 1' }),
      m(Child, { title: 'Child Title 2', text: 'Text Number 2' }),
      m(Child, { title: 'Child Title 3', text: 'Text Number 3' })

m.mount(document.body, App);


@import "";

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. In this example we can also see the usecase of Vnodes (virtual DOM nodes) which is a JavaScript data structure that describes a DOM tree.
