  install(new FreemarkerModule());

  get("/", ctx -> {
    return new ModelAndView("index.ftl")
        .put("name", "Jooby");

Template engine supports the following file extensions: .ftl, .ftl.html and .html.

1.2. Templates Location

Template location is set to views. The views folder/location is expected to be at the current user directory or at root of classpath.

You can override the default location by setting the templates.path property in the application configuration file or programmatically at creation time.

The freemarker module turn off cache while running in dev or test environment. For any other environment it use a soft cache.

To set a different template cache just set the freemarker.cacheStorage property.

freemarker.cacheStorage = soft
freemarker.strictSyntax = yes

Custom Configuration object can be provided it programmatically:

import io.jooby.freemarker.FreemarkerModule;

  Configuration freemarker = new Configuration();

  install(new FreemarkerModule(freemarker));
