This is a clone of Greg Lowes mustace-package

This 'reflected'-package uses reflection instead of mirrors wich makes it Dart 2.x/Browser compatible

Mustache / Dart

A Dart library to parse and render mustache templates.

See the mustache manual for detailed usage information.

This library passes all mustache specification tests.

Example usage - browser

import 'dart:html' as dom;
import 'package:reflected_mustache/mustache.dart';

import 'main.reflectable.dart';

class Version {
    final int major;
    final int minor;

    Version(this.major, this.minor);

class DartLang {
    final String name;
    final Version version;
    final String message;

    DartLang(, this.version, this.message);

void main() {

    final Template template = new Template(
            Language: {{name}}<br>
            Version: {{version.major}}.{{version.minor}}<br>
            Comment: {{message}}
        """.trim(), lenient: false,htmlEscapeValues: false);
    final DartLang language = new DartLang("Dart",new Version(1,13),"Your Dart app is running.");

    final String content = template.renderString(language);
    final dom.Element child = new dom.Element.html(content);


      .removeWhere((final String selector) => selector == "loading");

Example usage - cmdline

import 'package:mustache/mustache.dart';

main() {
	var source = '''
	  {{# names }}
            <div>{{ lastname }}, {{ firstname }}</div>
	  {{/ names }}
	  {{^ names }}
	    <div>No names.</div>
	  {{/ names }}
	  {{! I am a comment. }}

	var template = new Template(source, name: 'template-filename.html');

	var output = template.renderString({'names': [
		{'firstname': 'Greg', 'lastname': 'Lowe'},
		{'firstname': 'Bob', 'lastname': 'Johnson'}


A template is parsed when it is created, after parsing it can be rendered any number of times with different values. A TemplateException is thrown if there is a problem parsing or rendering the template.

The Template contstructor allows passing a name, this name will be used in error messages. When working with a number of templates, it is important to pass a name so that the error messages specify which template caused the error.

By default all output from {{variable}} tags is html escaped, this behaviour can be changed by passing htmlEscapeValues : false to the Template constructor. You can also use a {{{triple mustache}}} tag, or a unescaped variable tag {{&unescaped}}, the output from these tags is not escaped.


This library uses reflection to get runtime type information. This means - no mirrors necessary

Differences between strict mode and lenient mode.

Strict mode (default)

  • Tag names may only contain the characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9, underscore, period and minus. Other characters in tags will cause a TemplateException to be thrown during parsing.

  • During rendering, if no map key or object member which matches the tag name is found, then a TemplateException will be thrown.

Lenient mode

  • Tag names may use any characters.
  • During rendering, if no map key or object member which matches the tag name is found, then silently ignore and output nothing.

Nested paths

  var t = new Template('{{ }}');
  var output = template.renderString({'author': {'name': 'Greg Lowe'}});

Partials - example usage

var partial = new Template('{{ foo }}', name: 'partial');

var resolver = (String name) {
   if (name == 'partial-name') { // Name of partial tag.
     return partial;

var t = new Template('{{> partial-name }}', partialResolver: resolver);

var output = t.renderString({'foo': 'bar'}); // bar

Lambdas - example usage

var t = new Template('{{# foo }}');
var lambda = (_) => 'bar';
t.renderString({'foo': lambda}); // bar
var t = new Template('{{# foo }}hidden{{/ foo }}');
var lambda = (_) => 'shown'};
t.renderString({'foo': lambda); // shown
var t = new Template('{{# foo }}oi{{/ foo }}');
var lambda = (LambdaContext ctx) => '<b>${ctx.renderString().toUpperCase()}</b>';
t.renderString({'foo': lambda}); // <b>OI</b>
var t = new Template('{{# foo }}{{bar}}{{/ foo }}');
var lambda = (LambdaContext ctx) => '<b>${ctx.renderString().toUpperCase()}</b>';
t.renderString({'foo': lambda, 'bar': 'pub'}); // <b>PUB</b>
var t = new Template('{{# foo }}{{bar}}{{/ foo }}');
var lambda = (LambdaContext ctx) => '<b>${ctx.renderString().toUpperCase()}</b>';
t.renderString({'foo': lambda, 'bar': 'pub'}); // <b>PUB</b>

In the following example LambdaContext.renderSource(source) re-parses the source string in the current context, this is the default behaviour in many mustache implementations. Since re-parsing the content is slow, and often not required, this library makes this step optional.

var t = new Template('{{# foo }}{{bar}}{{/ foo }}');
var lambda = (LambdaContext ctx) => ctx.renderSource(ctx.source + ' {{cmd}}')};
t.renderString({'foo': lambda, 'bar': 'pub', 'cmd': 'build'}); // pub build
