The offical repository of the webcomponent client-route


Published on

Client-route is a simple webcomponent for client side routing.

The component supports lazyloading by using the javascript eval function.

My custom import function will be replaced by the offical import as soon as the import propsal is supported in all browsers.

The component listens for pathchanged events to know when to check whether it should render the children.


npm install client-route or yarn add client-route


Note: the recommended way of using client-route is together with client-link.

<script src="node_modules/client-router/index.js"></script>
<client-route path="/"> Home </client-route>
<client-route path="/about"> About </client-route>



The children get rendered when the path matches the window location.

<client-route path="/"></client-route>


The location of the custom element. Activates lazy loading. If from is specified then the tag attribute has to be set too. Warning: the custom element can't be specified in a module file due to the limitations of eval.

<client-route path="/" from="/home.js" tag="home-page"></client-route>


The element that gets rendered after the element has been fetched. Activates lazy loading. If tag is specified then the from attribute has to be set too.

<client-route path="/" from="/home.js" tag="home-page"></client-route>
