Thymeleaf: Extensible Java-based XML / XHTML / HTML5 template engine

Thymeleaf Logo

A Java templating language. I like how the syntax modifies attributes on existing tags like this:

<input type="text" th:field="*{name}" />

From the Thymeleaf website:

Thymeleaf is a Java library. It is an XML / XHTML / HTML5 template engine
(extensible to other formats) that can work both in web and non-web
environments. It is better suited for serving XHTML/HTML5 at the view layer of
web applications, but it can process any XML file even in offline environments.

It provides an optional module for integration with Spring MVC, so that you
can use it as a complete substitute of JSP in your applications made with this
technology, even with HTML5.

The main goal of Thymeleaf is to provide an elegant and well-formed way of
creating templates. Its Standard and SpringStandard dialects allow you to
create powerful natural templates, that can be correctly displayed by browsers
and therefore work also as static prototypes. You can also extend Thymeleaf by
developing your own dialects.

Sample markup

      <th th:text="#{}">Name</th>
      <th th:text="#{msgs.headers.price}">Price</th>
    <tr th:each="prod : ${allProducts}">
      <td th:text="${}">Oranges</td>
      <td th:text="${#numbers.formatDecimal(prod.price,1,2)}">0.99</td>
