angel3_jael #

version Null Safety Gitter


Angel support for Jael.

Installation #

In your pubspec.yaml:

  angel3_jael: ^4.0.0

Usage #

Just like mustache and other renderers, configuring Angel to use Jael is as simple as calling app.configure:

import 'package:angel3_framework/angel3_framework.dart';
import 'package:angel3_jael/angel3_jael.dart';
import 'package:file/file.dart';

AngelConfigurer myPlugin(FileSystem fileSystem) {
    return (Angel app) async {
        // Connect Jael to your server...
        await app.configure(

package:angel3_jael supports caching views, to improve server performance. You might not want to enable this in development, so consider setting the flag to app.isProduction:

jael(viewsDirectory, cacheViews: app.isProduction);

Keep in mind that this package uses package:file, rather than dart:io.

The following is a basic example of a server setup that can render Jael templates from a directory named views:

import 'package:angel3_framework/angel3_framework.dart';
import 'package:angel3_jael/angel3_jael.dart';
import 'package:file/local.dart';
import 'package:logging/logging.dart';

main() async {
  var app = Angel();
  var fileSystem = const LocalFileSystem();

  await app.configure(

  // Render the contents of views/index.jael
  app.get('/', (res) => res.render('index', {'title': 'ESKETTIT'}));

  app.use(() => throw AngelHttpException.notFound());

  app.logger = Logger('angel')
    ..onRecord.listen((rec) {
      if (rec.error != null) print(rec.error);
      if (rec.stackTrace != null) print(rec.stackTrace);

  var server = await app.startServer(null, 3000);
  print('Listening at http://${server.address.address}:${server.port}');

To apply additional transforms to parsed documents, provide a set of patch functions, like in package:jael3_preprocessor.
