  • Faster dynamic rendering: With TopazView, dynamic rendering is optimized for improved performance.
  • JavaScript syntax familiarity: TopazView employs JavaScript syntax, making it more accessible and familiar to web developers.
  • Simple learning curve: The template syntax used in TopazView closely resembles Razor, ensuring a smooth learning curve for developers.
  • Support for page models, layouts, sections, helper functions: TopazView provides comprehensive support for page models, layouts, sections, and helper functions, enabling developers to create dynamic and modular views.
  • Complete .NET API support: TopazView leverages the power of Topaz JavaScript engine to provide comprehensive access to the entire .NET API, giving developers extensive flexibility in their web development.

How to use TopazView?

The following sample shows the most basic setup of the TopazView.

using Tenray.TopazView;

var path = "web/views";
var viewEngine = new ViewEngineFactory()
    .SetContentProvider(new FileSystemContentProvider(path))

var contentWatcher = new FileSystemContentWatcher();
contentWatcher.StartWatcher(path, viewEngine);

The following is a sample of view rendering.

using Tenray.TopazView;

var context = viewEngine.CreateViewRenderContext();
context.Model = new { Title = "My Awesome TopazView Template" }.ToJsObject();
var html = await ViewEngine
    // provide an existing text file's relative path with any extension.

The following is a sample view template file (index.view).



    for(const i of [1,2,3]) {
        page.raw(i + ' <br>')

@if(@model.Title) {
    <div>model has a title.</div>
else {
    <div>model has no title.</div>
