This package enables htmx support within the Giraffe view engine.

htmx version: 2.0.0-beta3

Note that this is a BETA release of htmx 2.0; see the migration guide for changes


  1. Install the package (must use --Prerelease flag).
  2. Prior to using the attribute or support modules, open Giraffe.ViewEngine.Htmx.


Following Giraffe View Engine's lead, there are a set of attribute functions for htmx; for many of the attributes, there are also helper modules to assist with typing the values. The example below utilizes both:

let autoload =
    div [ _hxGet "/this/data"; _hxTrigger HxTrigger.Load ] [ str "Loading..." ]

Support modules include:

  • HxEncoding
  • HxHeaders
  • HxParams
  • HxRequest
  • HxSwap (requires open Giraffe.Htmx)
  • HxTrigger
  • HxVals

There are two XmlNodes that will load the htmx script from unpkg; Htmx.Script.minified loads the minified version, and Htmx.Script.unminified loads the unminified version (useful for debugging).

This also supports fragment rendering, providing the flexibility to render an entire template, or only a portion of it (based on the element's id attribute).


htmx's attributes and these attribute functions map one-to-one. There are two exceptions:

  • _hxBoost implies true; use _hxNoBoost to set it to false.
  • _hxSwapWithTransition renders the standard hx-swap attribute and appends transition:true to the specified swap value.

The htmx hx-on attribute supports multiple events if they are separated with a newline (\n) character. The value provided to this attribute will be attribute-escaped, but in testing, it was interpreted correctly.

The support modules contain named properties for known values (as illustrated with HxTrigger.Load above). A few of the modules are more than collections of names, though:

  • HxRequest has a Configure function, which takes a list of strings; the other functions in the module allow for configuring the request.
HxRequest.Configure [ HxRequest.Timeout 500 ] |> _hxRequest 
  • HxTrigger is (by far) the most complex of these modules. Most uses won't need that complexity; however, complex triggers can be defined by piping into or composing with other functions. For example, to define an event that responds to a shift-click anywhere on the document, with a delay of 3 seconds before firing:
|> HxTrigger.Filter.Shift
|> HxTrigger.FromDocument
|> HxTrigger.Delay "3s"
|> _hxTrigger

// or

(HxTrigger.Filter.Shift >> HxTrigger.FromDocument >> HxTrigger.Delay "3s") HxTrigger.Click
|> _hxTrigger
