City of Ghent Style Guide


This style guide offers some JavaScript functionality to be used in various situations or to implement part of the behaviour of this style guide.

All JavaScript libraries and code in this style guide have been thoroughly tested for accessibility.
As this style guide aims to be platform and framework independent, you are free to use your own favorite libraries or write your own code as long as you provide the same functionality and meet the same accessibility requirements.

All external libraries can be found in the /vendor directory.

Using JavaScript

Javascript files are organized per component. Each component consists of the following files namely:

  • COMPONENT.functions.js (optional if an external library is implemented)
  • COMPONENT.binding.js

Depending on the implementation of the style guide either the functions.js file or both are necessary.
