HTML Reimagined

Marko is HTML re-imagined as a language for building dynamic and reactive user interfaces. Just about any valid HTML is valid Marko, but Marko extends the HTML language to allow building modern applications in a declarative way.

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Hello Marko</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h1>My favorite colors</h1>
    <ul>
        <for|color| of=["red", "green", "blue"]>
            <li style=`color:${color}`>
                ${color.toUpperCase()}
            </li>
        </for>
    </ul>
    <shared-footer/>
</body>
</html>
HTML Templates, Custom Tags, & Javascript Expressions

  onCreate() {
    this.state = { count: 0 };
  }
  increment() {
    this.state.count++;
  }
}
<div>${state.count}</div>
<button on-click("increment")>
  Click me!
</button>
Interactive Logic & Reactive Values

Progressive Rendering

Marko streams content to your users as soon as it’s ready. No waiting for client side JavaScript bundles or data requests to start rendering. HTML, assets, and images are loaded as soon as possible with asynchronous data loading in as it completes.

Code Elimination

Marko only sends the code for interactive components to the browser. Its compiler automatically detects which components only need to be rendered on the server. This means less to download and less to execute. Your users can enjoy top tier performance regardless of their devices or networks.

Tailored Performance

Marko's compiler generates code tailored to where it is going to run. You write your code once and it is optimized for both the server and browser. This is especially apparent on the server where Marko is several times faster than other popular solutions.

Editor Support

Marko provides first-class support for the VSCode editor including syntax highlighting, Autocompletion, Hyperclick to quickly jump to referenced files, and Pretty printing to keep your code readable.

Community plugins also provide syntax highlighting for Sublime, Atom, Webstorm & others!
