Easy way to render HTML in Go
In this article I’ll show you how to render nested HTML template easily in Golang
For this tutorial, I’ll use renderer package to render our HTML template. Lets create a directory
tutorial` in your
$GOPATH/src . Use go get to install the above-mentioned package.
$ go get github.com/thedevsaddam/renderer/...
Our directory structure will look like:
Create header.html, navbar.html and footer.html inside
tutorial/inc . We are using bootstrap CDN to look cool. We are defining
header, navbar, footer template as reusable code.
Now we have our reusable template files, let’s create two templates, one for home and another for about page. Put these file inside
Now all of our template files are ready, let’s create a
main.go file inside the tutorial directory and write the code below:
At line10 in main.go file we declared a
rnd variable and inside
init function, we assigned the variable using renderer package. In this case, we used ParseGlobPattern option to parse any
.html file inside the
tpl directory. Inside main function we declared two routes for home and about page. Inside
about handlerFunc we used
HTML method from render package and passed the template name in the third param.
We are ready….. :D , run the app using
go run main.go and go to
localhost:9000 in your web browser.
