javascript browser DOM snippet basics

Here is a straightforward way to catch document loading. It's supported by modern browsers. You can use it as an alternative to jQuery $.ready.

function domReady(cb) {
  if (document.readyState === "complete" || document.readyState === "interactive") {
  } else {
    document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", cb);

domReady(() => {
  console.log("DOM: I'm ready");

TypeScript Version

function domReady(cb: Function): void {
  if (document.readyState === "complete" || document.readyState === "interactive") {

  } else {
    document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", (event: Event) => {
Keep in mind that DOMContentLoaded fires when HTML is loaded and parsed. It's not waiting for external stylesheets and scripts to load. You can consider using window load event.
