How to animate enter and leave of MeteorJS {{#if}} block?


Tag: animation,meteor,spacebars

The title really says it all. Given a template:

{{#if selection}}
    <div class="something">
        <p>To Animate</p>

how do I control enter and exit animations of .something?



You have to create a template out of the DOM containing stuff to animate:

<templte name="somthing">
<div class="parentdiv">
{{#if selection}}
    <div class="something">
        <p>To Animate</p>

You can then use _ui_hooks

Template.something.onRendered(function() {

this.find('#task-list')._uihooks = {
      insertElement: function(node, next) {

        setTimeout( function () {
        }, 20);
      removeElement: function (node) {
          .on(EVENTS, function() {

So here your css class containing the animation is animate.
