T·g

A simple C# generator for HTML/XML

https://www.nuget.org/packages/Tag

Why?

Sometimes you have a project where a lot of code is needed to output
a little markup. For those projects, markup templating engines make things more difficult,
and a lot of the time you end up doing string concatenation.
T·g is a step up from string concatenation.

Usage

See the TagTests.cs file for examples of every feature. Here are some overviews to get you started.

Basic usage

var tag = T.g("div", "class","glass")[
             T.g("a", "href", "#")["Fish"],
             T.g("br/")
          ];

Console.WriteLine(tag.ToString());

Outputs &lt;div class=&quot;glass&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;#&quot;&gt;Fish&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;/div&gt;

Writing to a stream

var tag = T.g( . . . );
tag.StreamTo(myWritableStream, Encoding.UTF8);

if StreamTo is called multiple times, it will write another copy of the tag tree.

Templating and injection pattern

var doc = HtmlDoc("Hello World", out var head, out var body);

body.Add(T.g("h1")["Hello, world"]);
body.Add(T.g("p")["This is a simple HTML page example"]);

return doc.ToString();

.
.
.

TagContent HtmlDoc(string title, out TagContent head, out TagContent body)
{
    var html = T.g("html");

    head = T.g("head")[
                    T.g("title")[title],
                    T.g("style").LoadFile("Styles/PageStyle.css")
                ]
            ];
    
    body = T.g("body")[T.g("script").LoadFile("Scripts/PageScript.js")];

    html.Add(head);
    html.Add(body);

    return html;
}
