vweb.tmpl #

This package is to generate data-driven HTML output.

Directives

Each directive begins with an @ sign. Some directives begin contains a {} block, others only have '' (string) parameters. More on the directives itself.

Newlines on the beginning and end are ignored in {} blocks, otherwise this (see if for this syntax):

@if bool_val {
    <span>This is shown if bool_val is true</span>
}

would result in:


    <span>This is shown if bool_val is true</span>

which could result in unreadable output.

if

The if directive consists of three parts, the @if tag, the condition (same syntax like in V) and the {} block where you can write html which will be rendered if the condition is true:

@if <condition> {}

Example

@if bool_val {
    <span>This is shown if bool_val is true</span>
}

One-liner:

@if bool_val { <span>This is shown if bool_val is true</span> }

The first example would result in:

    <span>This is shown if bool_val is true</span>

while the one-liner results in:

<span>This is shown if bool_val is true</span>

for

The for directive consists of three parts, the @for tag, the condition (same syntax like in V) and the {} block where you can write html which will be rendered for each loop:

@for <condition> {}

Example

@for i, val in my_vals {
    <span>$i - $val</span>
}

One-liner:

@for i, val in my_vals { <span>$i - $val</span> }

The first example would result in:

    <span>0 - "First"</span>
    <span>1 - "Second"</span>
    <span>2 - "Third"</span>
    ...

while the one-liner results in:

<span>0 - "First"</span>
<span>1 - "Second"</span>
<span>2 - "Third"</span>
...

You can also write (and all other for condition syntaxes that are allowed in V):

@for i = 0; i < 5; i++ {
    <span>$i</span>
}

include

The include directive is for including other html files (which will be processed as well) and consists of two parts, the @include tag and a following '<path>' string. The path parameter is relative to the /templates directory in the corresponding project.

Example

Files

Project root
/templates
    - index.html
    /headers
        - base.html

index.html

<div>@include 'header/base'</div>

Note that there shouldn't be a file suffix, it is automatically appended and only allows html files.

js

The js directive consists of two parts, the @js tag and '<path>' string, where you can insert your src

@js '<url>'

Example

@js 'myscripts.js'

Variables

All variables which are declared before can be used through the @{my_var} syntax. It's also possible to use properties of structs here like @{my_struct.prop}.

fn compile_file #

fn compile_file(path string, fn_name string) string

compile_file compiles the content of a file by the given path as a template

fn compile_template #

fn compile_template(html_ string, fn_name string) string
