n-topic-card CircleCI

n-topic-card is a card that shows a list of articles for a concept (topic, author, etc.) with links to myFT actions.


Add the component to bower.json and package.json.

Run npm install n-topic-card --save && bower install n-topic-card --save.

Add the following line to your main sass file: @import "n-topic-card/main";.



{{> n-topic-card/templates/concept }}

With custom slot

{{#> n-topic-card/templates/concept withCustomSlot=true}}
    <div>Some custom content you wish to inject at the bottom of the card before the footer</div>
{{/ n-topic-card/templates/concept}}


const myftTemplate = require('../../../views/partials/myft.html');
const myFtHtml = myftTemplate(data);

n-topic-card requires at least the following data:

  • url - url for the concept stream page
  • name - name of the concept e.g. World
  • conceptId
  • items an array of objects that are the headlines to show

Please view the source for more information.

Make sure that when used, myFT styles are included in the head stylesheet of the app. If not, necessary styles can be included by adding this code:

@import 'n-myft-ui/myft-common/main';

Extra data

responsive-grids handles scenarios where you want particular cards to be hidden at certain breakpoints. For example, on the home page only 3 myFT concept cards are shown between the medium and large breakpoints. This decorator requires the data item show with the settings in an object e.g. { default: true, M: false, XL: true }.

The decorator finds an image from the list of articles to be displayed, and if it cannot find one uses a default.

Demo page

make demo: Serves examples of the component locally (http://localhost:5005), using dummy data and in isolation from an app.

This is done on a simple express app which renders a single demo page that calls the partials to exhibit, populating them with data from a fixture.


make a11y: Serves page of demo components, on which it runs Pa11y accessibility tests (errors flagging up accessibility infringements), which will also be run as part of the Continuous Integration (CI) process.
