Nustache - Logic-less templates for .NET
For a list of implementations (other than .NET) and editor plugins, see
http://mustache.github.com/.
Installation:
- Pull from GitHub or download the repository and build it.
- Or, install via NuGet (search for Nustache).
- If you're using MVC, you'll want to build/install the Nustache.Mvc3 project,
too.
Usage:
For non-MVC projects:
- Add a reference to Nustache.Core.dll (done for you if you used NuGet).
- Import the Nustache.Core namespace.
- Use one of the static, helper methods on the Render class.
var html = Render.FileToString("foo.template", myData);
- Data can be object, IDictionary, or DataTable.
- If you need more control, use Render.Template.
- See the source and tests for more information.
For MVC projects:
- Add a reference to Nustache.Mvc3.dll (done for you if you used NuGet).
- Add NustacheViewEngine to the global list of view engines.
- See Global.asax.cs in the Nustache.Mvc3.Example project for an example.
nustache.exe:
- Command-line wrapper around Render.FileToFile.
- Parameters are templatePath, dataPath, and outputPath.
- Reads JSON or XML from dataPath for data.
- If extension is .js or .json, assumes JSON. Must wrap with { }.
- If extension is .xml, assumes XML. Initial context is the document element.
nustache.exe foo.template myData.json foo.html
- External templates are assumed to be in the same folder as the template
mentioned in templatePath.
- Extension is also assumed to be the same as the template in templatePath.
Syntax:
- The same as Mustache with some extensions.
- Support for defining internal templates:
{{<foo}}This is the foo template.{{/foo}}
The above doesn't get rendered until it's included
like this:
{{>foo}}
You can define templates inside sections. They override
templates defined in outer sections which override
external templates.
