Describe the bug

When serving html files through web_dev_server by using cargo tauri dev, any template element contents in the served HTML are removed.

While looking further into this issue, the culprit seem to be this:

f = document.to_string().as_bytes().to_vec();

FMPOV, this should be changed to:

f = tauri_utils::html::serialize_node(&document);

(I've actually tried this change out and it solves the issue)

A similar issue has already been fixed for the assets compilation process / asset csp modification, see #5247 (and also #4410) but the web_dev_server hasn't catched up with this change.


  1. cargo create-tauri-app

  2. Select plain vanilla HTML/CSS/JavaScript

  3. Add the following template element before the closing body tag in src/index.html:

  1. cargo tauri dev
  2. Inspect the DOM and observe that the template element is empty

Expected behavior

HTML template element contents should be served properly.

For the example above, I would expect to see the following children when inspecting the DOM:
