Installing Nuget Package

This library is available as Nuget package

Using .NET CLI
dotnet add package Razor.Templating.Core
Using Package Reference .csproj
<PackageReference Include="Razor.Templating.Core" Version="1.7.0-rc.1" />

Simple Usage:

using Razor.Templating.Core;

var model = new ExampleModel()
    PlainText = "This text is rendered from Razor Views using Razor.Templating.Core",
    HtmlContent = "<em>You can use it to generate email content, report generation and so on</em>"

// Both ViewBag and ViewData should be added to the same dictionary. 
var viewDataOrViewBag = new Dictionary<string, object>();
// ViewData is same as mvc
viewDataOrViewBag["Value1"] = "1";

// ViewBag.Value2 can be written as below. There's no change on how it's accessed in .cshtml file
viewDataOrViewBag["Value2"] = "2";

var html = await RazorTemplateEngine.RenderAsync("/Views/ExampleView.cshtml", model, viewDataOrViewBag);

Dependency Injection [Since v1.4.0]

Dependencies can be injected directly into views using @inject in .csthml file. Refer sample application here

In ASP.NET Core, add dependency like below in Startup.cs -> ConfigureServices

//add after registering all the dependencies

or in console or other applications, add as below

using Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection;

// Add dependencies to the service collection
var services = new ServiceCollection();
// Add RazorTemplating after registering all dependencies
// this is important for the razor template engine to find the injected services
var html = await RazorTemplateEngine.RenderAsync("~/Views/ExampleViewServiceInjection.cshtml");

Razor Views in Library

Razor view files(.cshtml) can be organized in a separate shared Razor Class Libary(RCL). Sample library can be found here

Sample Applications

Please find the sample applications here


  • Please ensure that the views path is always unique among all the shared template projects.
