Pub build status

A plug-in that allows you to return html_builder AST's from request handlers, and have them sent as HTML automatically.

package:html_builder is a simple virtual DOM library (without diffing, you can find that here), with a handy Dart DSL that makes it easy to build HTML AST's:

import 'package:html_builder/elements.dart';

Node myDom = html(lang: 'en', c: [
  head(c: [
    meta(name: 'viewport', content: 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1'),
    title(c: [
      text('html_builder example page')
  body(c: [
    h1(c: [
      text('Hello world!'),

This plug-in means that you can now return these AST's, and Angel will automatically send them to clients. Ultimately, the implication is that you can use html_builder as a substitute for a templating system within Dart. With hot reloading, you won't even need to reload your server (as it should be).


In your pubspec.yaml:

  angel_html: ^1.0.0


The renderHtml function does all the magic for you.

configureServer(Angel app) async {
  // Wire it up!
  // You can pass a custom StringRenderer if you need more control over the output.
  app.before.add(renderHtml(renderer: new StringRenderer(html5: false)));
  app.get('/greet/:name', (RequestContext req) {
    return html(lang: 'en', c: [
     head(c: [
       meta(name: 'viewport', content: 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1'),
       title(c: [
     body(c: [
       h1(c: [
         text('Hello, ${req.params['id']}!'),

By default, renderHtml will ignore the client's Accept header. However, if you pass enforceAcceptHeader as true, then a 406 Not Acceptable error will be thrown if the client doesn't accept */* or text/html.

configureServer(Angel app) async {
  // Wire it up!
  app.before.add(renderHtml(enforceAcceptHeader: true));
  // ...
