fsharp liquid example
// @leoningelse_gitlab ok, this is an exampla that can be easily
// changed in a way to avoid hidden fields, and html coding
// in App.fs file, before start the wweb server, you set the
// dotLiquid template dir
let cfg =
{ defaultConfig with
bindings = [ HttpBinding.createSimple HTTP "" 8083 ] }
DotLiquid.setTemplatesDir ("liquidtemplates")
startWebServer cfg webPart
// in App.fs file, define the model containing paramater to be
// passed to templates
type MyModl = {HtmlParameter: string}
// in App.fs, handle a request containi the parameter
let formWithHiddenFields parameter =
let o = {HtmlParameter = parameter}"myFile.html") o
// in liquidtemplates dir you have a myFile.html with
// a form like this:
<input type="hidden" id="custId" name="custId" value="{{model.html_parameter}}">
// you need to copy in your build directory the template, so if you use msbuild
// and a .fsproj file, you need the following lines:
<Content Include="liquidtemplates\myFile.html">
// if you use some Ide like Ride, Xamarin, Visual Studio, I think it will add those lines
// for you when you add the html to the project. Alternatively you will do it
// by editing the .fsproj file
