Server Side Rendered Views

Rendering Views

Just like res.render in Express, Angel's ResponseContext exposes a Future called render. This invokes whichever function is assigned to your server's viewGenerator.
There is a Mustache templating plug-in for Angel available:
There is also Jael, one of the few actively-developed HTML templating engines for Dart.
Angel support for Jael is provided through package:angel3_jael.
Another is Jinja2, which was recently ported by to Dart by Olzhas Suleimen.
Angel support for Jinja2 can be found here:


app.get('/view', (req, res) async => await res.render('hello', {'locals': ['foo', 'bar']});


Angel declares the following typedef:
/// A function that asynchronously generates a view from the given path and data.
typedef Future<String> ViewGenerator(String path, [Map data]);
A templating plug-in can assign one of these to app.viewGenerator to set itself up:
import 'dart:io';
import 'package:angel3_framework/angel3_framework.dart';
Future<void> plugin(Angel app) async {
app.viewGenerator = (String path, [Map data]) async {
return "Requested view $path with locals: $data";
void main() async {
var app = Angel();
await app.configure(plugin);
await app.startServer();
