Include another HTML file in an HTML file


Scenario: I'm setting up a layout, which will be used by third parties and I do not know what language will be used. I have two divs, one will be the left menu and the other the content. They are separated by a Splitter , my questions are:

  • This left menu, I want to develop a html part and call it by include , what is the best way to do it?

  • If I make a call via javascript, I will have problems with javascript contained on this page to be inserted?

  • Is there any such standard in HTML5 , CSS or some form simple to implement in JavaScript ?

  • I know iframe is not a good solution. Through <object type="text/html" data="include.html"></object> , it works but I think it's not a good solution either.

    If you are using a webserver (for example, Apache or IIS), it probably supports Server-side includes . With this you could use, in the main HTML:

    <!-- #include file="caminho-do-menu.hml" -->

    I do not know if I understand correctly, but if so, and how you tagged the tag , so why not use load :


    If the content is static, however, it is better to process it on the server, see the @bfavaretto response.

    The way that developers are exploring are generators that do it for you. We have some good ones like Jekyll and Middleman . I chose to use Jekyll and it helps me a lot with a language that independent of the programmer, understanding the algorithm is easy. For example, when I have a home page that has 10 products, I make 1 model of how it would look and a for iterate this repetition.

    Jekyll example:

    <div class="produtos">
        {% for i in (1...9) %}
                <div class="product-align">
                    <div class="product" itemscope itemtype="">
                        <img itemprop="image" class="product-image center-block" alt="imagem produto" src="assets/images/produto01.png">
                        <p class="product-title" itemprop="name">Cadeira Tulipa</p>
                        <p class="product-review" itemprop="review">Clássica criação de Pierre Paulin</p>
                        <div class="price" itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="">
                        <!-- div que separa itens referente ao preço de cada produto -->
                            <p class="product-price">De: R$2,999.00</p>
                            <!-- preço original -->
                            <p class="final-product-price" itemprop="price">Por: R$2,000.</p>
                            <!-- preço com desconto -->
                            <p class="parcel-product-price">Ou até 6x de R$250,00.</p>
                            <!-- preço parcelado -->
                        <a href="produto.html">
                            <button class="btn-see-more" type="button">Veja mais</button>
        {% endfor %}

    Jekyll allows you to send the HTML together as if it were a sort of "merge" of pages and allows you to send as I sent up. You can send the 2 forms to the customer and he takes care of everything else. This is the most appropriate way.

    An elegant solution would be to use some javascript framework like Vue , Angular and etc.

    Well, they already have a nice structure to work with in such a way.

    Since you need different environments on the same page, in the modern web we usually create the web site with componentization . It can be a nice solution to your problem.


    The best example for this is the direct references on the framework website where you can see and read about it
