💧 Vapor plugin for type-safe, transformable HTML views.


Swift 5 Swift 4.2 Linux CI @pointfreeco

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


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.


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

import HtmlVaporSupport
import Vapor

let app = try Application()
let router = try app.make(Router.self)

router.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


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:

dependencies: [
  .package(url: "https://github.com/pointfreeco/swift-html-vapor.git", from: "0.3.0")

Xcode Sub-project

Submodule, clone, or download swift-html-vapor, and drag HtmlVaporSupport.xcodeproj into your project.
