js_name = Blah

The js_name attribute can be used to export a different name in JS than what something is named in Rust. It can be applied to both exported Rust functions and types.

For example, this is often used to convert between Rust's snake-cased identifiers into JavaScript's camel-cased identifiers:


# #![allow(unused_variables)]
#fn main() {
#[wasm_bindgen(js_name = doTheThing)]
pub fn do_the_thing() -> u32 {
    42
}
#}

This can be used in JavaScript as:

import { doTheThing } from './my_module';

const x = doTheThing();
console.log(x);

Like imports, js_name can also be used to rename types exported to JS:


# #![allow(unused_variables)]
#fn main() {
#[wasm_bindgen(js_name = Foo)]
pub struct JsFoo {
    // ..
}
#}

to be accessed like:

import { Foo } from './my_module';

// ...

Note that attaching methods to the JS class Foo should be done via the js_class attribute:


# #![allow(unused_variables)]
#fn main() {
#[wasm_bindgen(js_name = Foo)]
pub struct JsFoo { /* ... */ }

#[wasm_bindgen(js_class = Foo)]
impl JsFoo {
    // ...
}
#}
