The Diet template language is aimed at providing a way to define procedurally generated HTML/XML pages (or other output formats), with minimal visual noise. Syntax and feature set are heavily inspired by pug <https://pugjs.org/>, but instead of JavaScript, all expressions and statements are D statements, and everything that can be done at compile-time is done at compile-time.


The library is now considered ready for (careful) production use and can be used with the latest pre-release versions of vibe.d (just add it as a dependency to your project and vibe.d will use it for rendering Diet templates automatically).

For more information about the improvements of this library over the original implementation that (still) comes with vibe.d, see the original announcement: https://forum.dlang.org/thread/nn4m62$14r5$1...@digitalmars.com


Source/DUB package:

https://code.dlang.org/packages/diet-ng

Does this basically convert the dt file in to a d file with a embedded html output statements?

e.g.,

dt file
html1
d1
html2
d2

corresponding d file:

output(html1);
d1
output(html2);
d2

output outputs the html text directly and the d code is executed. Of course, I guess some fixups need to happen on the html code for embedded variables and such.

Just wondering about how it is done conceptually.
