The purpose of this project is to provide a utility to build webpages (or any HTML content) in code.


Start by creating a new instance of HtmlDocument in the following way

var document = new HtmlDocument();

This is setup as a builder pattern so the last method that should be called is Build which returns the entire HTML string.

From HtmlDocument there are a number of methods available: AddBody, AddHead, SetAttribute, SetClass. The last two methods are available on almost every subsequent builder. As mentioned previously, this uses the builder pattern to create HTML documents. Most of the builders have subsequent builders that can be utilized to build more complex HTML.


Below is an example of a fairly simple webpage.

var html = new HtmlDocument()
    .AddHead(head => 
        head.AddMeta(meta => meta.Set("name", "viewport").Set("content", "width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"))
            .AddMeta(meta => meta.Set("charset", "utf-8"))
            .SetTitle("HTML Builder")
            .AddLink(link => link.SetRel("stylesheet").SetType("text/css").SetHref("css/lib/bootstrap-5.1.3.min.css")))
    .AddBody(body => 
        body.AddDiv(div => div.SetClass("container")
                .AddHeading(Heading.H1, "HTML Builder")
                .AddForm(form => form.SetId("form1")
                    .AddDiv(div => div.SetClass("mb-3")
                        .AddInput(InputType.Text, input => input.SetClass("form-control"))
                    .AddDiv(div => div.SetClass("mb-3")
                        .AddSelect(select => select.SetClass("form-control")
                            .AddOption("Option 1")
                            .AddOption("Option 2"))
                    .AddDiv(div => div.SetClass("mb-3")
                        .AddTextarea(textarea => textarea.SetClass("form-control")))
                .AddButton(button => button.SetType(ButtonType.Button).SetClass("btn btn-primary").SetText("Load"))
                .AddTable(table =>
                    .AddHead(thead => thead.AddRow(tr => tr.AddDataHeading("Name").AddDataHeading("Address")))
                    .AddBody(tbody => tbody.AddRow(tr => tr.AddData("John Doe").AddData("123 Fake St")))
                .AddAnchor(a => a.SetValue("Click Here").SetHref("#"))
                .AddList(ListType.UnorderedList, ul => 
                    ul.Add("Item 1")
                        .Add("Item 2")
                        .Add("Item 3"))
            .AddScript(ScriptType.JavaScript, "js/lib/jquery-3.6.0.min.js")
            .AddScript(ScriptType.JavaScript, "js/lib/bootstrap.bundle-5.1.3.min.js")
