render

Martini middleware/handler for easily rendering serialized JSON and HTML template responses.

API Reference

Usage

render uses Go's html/template package to render html templates.

// main.go
package main

import (
  "github.com/codegangsta/martini"
  "github.com/codegangsta/martini-contrib/render"
)

func main() {
  m := martini.Classic()
  // render html templates from templates directory
  m.Use(render.Renderer())

  m.Get("/", func(r render.Render) {
    r.HTML(200, "hello", "jeremy")
  })

  m.Run()
}
<!-- templates/hello.tmpl -->
<h2>Hello {{.}}!</h2>

Options

render.Renderer comes with a variety of configuration options:

// ...
m.Use(render.Renderer(render.Options{
  Directory: "templates", // Specify what path to load the templates from.
  Layout: "layout", // Specify a layout template. Layouts can call {{ yield }} to render the current template.
  Extensions: []string{".tmpl", ".html"}, // Specify extensions to load for templates.
  Funcs: []template.FuncMap{AppHelpers}, // Specify helper function maps for templates to access.
  Delims: render.Delims{"{[{", "}]}"}, // Sets delimiters to the specified strings.
  Charset: "UTF-8", // Sets encoding for json and html content-types. Default is "UTF-8".
  IndentJSON: true, // Output human readable JSON
}))
// ...

Loading Templates

By default the render.Renderer middleware will attempt to load templates with a '.tmpl' extension from the "templates" directory. Templates are found by traversing the templates directory and are named by path and basename. For instance, the following directory structure:

templates/
  |
  |__ admin/
  |      |
  |      |__ index.tmpl
  |      |
  |      |__ edit.tmpl
  |
  |__ home.tmpl

Will provide the following templates:

admin/index
admin/edit
home

Layouts

render.Renderer provides a yield function for layouts to access:

// ...
m.Use(render.Renderer(render.Options{
  Layout: "layout",
}))
// ...
<!-- templates/layout.tmpl -->
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Martini Plz</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <!-- Render the current template here -->
    {{ yield }}
  </body>
</html>

Character Encodings

The render.Renderer middleware will automatically set the proper Content-Type header based on which function you call. See below for an example of what the default settings would output (note that UTF-8 is the default):

// main.go
package main

import (
  "github.com/codegangsta/martini"
  "github.com/codegangsta/martini-contrib/render"
)

func main() {
  m := martini.Classic()
  m.Use(render.Renderer())

  // This will set the Content-Type header to "text/html; charset=UTF-8"
  m.Get("/", func(r render.Render) {
    r.HTML(200, "hello", "world")
  })

  // This will set the Content-Type header to "application/json; charset=UTF-8"
  m.Get("/api", func(r render.Render) {
    r.JSON(200, map[string]interface{}{"hello": "world"})
  })

  m.Run()
}

In order to change the charset, you can set the Charset within the render.Options to your encoding value:

// main.go
package main

import (
  "github.com/codegangsta/martini"
  "github.com/codegangsta/martini-contrib/render"
)

func main() {
  m := martini.Classic()
  m.Use(render.Renderer(render.Options{
    Charset: "ISO-8859-1",
  }))

  // This is set the Content-Type to "text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
  m.Get("/", func(r render.Render) {
    r.HTML(200, "hello", "world")
  })

  // This is set the Content-Type to "application/json; charset=ISO-8859-1"
  m.Get("/api", func(r render.Render) {
    r.JSON(200, map[string]interface{}{"hello": "world"})
  })

  m.Run()
}
