Vapor plugin for type-safe, transformable HTML views using swift-html.

Motivation

The most popular choice for rendering HTML in a Vapor web app is to use the Leaf templating language, but it exposes your application to runtime errors and invalid HTML. Our plugin prevents these runtime issues at compile-time by embedding HTML directly into Swift’s powerful type system. It uses the swift-html DSL for constructing HTML documents using plain Swift data structures.

Usage

To use the plugin all you have to do is return a Node value from your router callback:

import HtmlVaporSupport
import Vapor

var env = try Environment.detect()
let app = Application(env)
defer { app.shutdown() }

app.get { _ in
  Node.h1("Hello, type-safe HTML on Vapor!")
}

try app.run()

Take it for a spin

We've included a sample Vapor application in this repo to show off its usage. To run the app immediately, simply do:

  • swift run HtmlVaporSupportExample
  • Open your browser to http://localhost:8080

The HTML for that page is constructed and rendered with swift-html!

If you want to run the app in Xcode so that you can play around with the HTML, try this:

  • git clone https://github.com/pointfreeco/swift-html-vapor
  • cd swift-html-vapor
  • make xcodeproj
  • Select the HtmlVaporSupportExample target
  • Build and run cmd+R
  • Open your browser to http://localhost:8080

Installation

If you want to use swift-html-vapor in a project that uses SwiftPM, it's as simple as adding a dependencies clause to your Package.swift:
