Themplator

Wicket-like t(h)emplating library written in Java and based on StAX. It is in an earlier than early stage and only offers a couple of controlling bricks, namely :

  • Label: similar to Wicket's Label component, it is used to set an element's text
  • Repeater and ListRepeater: to repeat an element
  • InjectMarkup: to inject markup from a seperate stream into the result

Themplator also supports hiding bricks and body-only rendering.

Building

You need a Java 5 (or newer) environment and Maven 2.0.9 (or newer) installed:

$ mvn -v
Apache Maven 3.0-beta-1 (r935667; 2010-04-19 19:00:39+0200)
Java version: 1.6.0_20
Java home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.20/jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "linux" version: "2.6.32-22-generic" arch: "amd64" Family: "unix"

You should now be able to do a full build of themplator:

$ git clone git://github.com/jawher/themplator.git
$ cd themplator
$ mvn clean install

To use this library in your projects, add the following to the dependencies section of your pom.xml:

<dependency>
  <groupId>jawher</groupId>
  <artifactId>themplator</artifactId>
  <version>0.9-SNAPSHOT</version>
</dependency>

Troubleshooting

Please consider using Github issues tracker to submit bug reports or feature requests.

Using this library

Here is a sample showing the usage of themplator's very few templating capabilities implemented so far:

Given this markup :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<root>
	<div thid="d">
		<span style="color: aqua;" thid="s">hello world</span>
	</div>
	<h1 thid="invisible">title</h1>
</root>

The above can be manipulated using themplator's bricks :

List<String> data = Arrays.asList("one", "two", "three", "four");

Themplate t = new Themplate();

ListRepeater<String> d = new ListRepeater<String>("d",
		new SimpleModel<List<String>>(data)) {

	@Override
	protected void populate(
			themplator.bricks.ListRepeater.ListItem<String> item) {
		InjectMarkup im = new InjectMarkup("s", Thest2.class
				.getResourceAsStream("brick.html"));
		im.add(new Label("s", item.getModel()));
		item.add(im);
	}

};

d.setRenderBodyOnly(true);
t.add(d);

Label label = new Label("invisible", new SimpleModel<String>("text"));
label.setRenderBodyOnly(true);
t.add(label);

InputStream is = Thest2.class.getResourceAsStream("test0.html");
ByteArrayOutputStream os = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

t.render(is, os);

System.out.println(new String(os.toByteArray()));

to produce the following:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<root>
	<span style="color: aqua;" thid="s">
		<ul class="menu">
			<li class="active" thid="s">one</li>
			<li>Item 1</li>
		</ul>
	</span>

	<span style="color: aqua;" thid="s">
		<ul class="menu">
			<li class="active" thid="s">two</li>
			<li>Item 1</li>
		</ul>
	</span>

	<span style="color: aqua;" thid="s">
		<ul class="menu">
			<li class="active" thid="s">three</li>
			<li>Item 1</li>
		</ul>
	</span>

	<span style="color: aqua;" thid="s">
		<ul class="menu">
			<li class="active" thid="s">four</li>
			<li>Item 1</li>
		</ul>
	</span>

	text
</root>
