Allow conditional 'navigo-data' attribute for the '<a href="">' element

See original GitHub issue


Firstly, thank you for the great library! The new version (v8) looks very good so far.

Currently, I am facing an issue where sometimes I want to pass a full url e.g. to the href='' tag without Navigo’s support. Other times I want to pass a local path e.g. path/somewhere and enable Navigo’s functionality by adding navigo-data attribute.

I am using Navigo in conjuntion with Alpine.js and thought I would be able to do something like this <a href="" navigo-data="!this.isUrl"> where isUrl = true.

Maybe there is a way to do this that I don’t know about, please advise.

P.S. I know I could probably achieve this conditionally, either with navigate() function or conditioning the element (<a href='https://'> vs. <a href='/' navigo-data>), but wondering if this could this be a feature?

Thank you ✌️

Well, updatePageLinks doesn’t remove the listeners that are already attached to links. So, there is some work required to achieve what you want. It’s on my list already.

There is a new version 8.5.0 which:

  • supports "false" as value of data-navigo attribute. In this case it skips the link and the link works as a normal one
  • skips links with target="_blank"

Also have in mind that if some link is instrumented, or in other words wired to Navigo logic you can change its data-navigo value to "false" and call router.updatePageLinks(). This will remove the click listener and will make the link work as a normal link.

Let me know if it doesn’t work as expected and I’ll reopen the issue.
