How to fix panic: template: index.html:36: unexpected “.mytmpl” in template clause?

When I define a template like {{define “home”}}{{end}} and use it inside my html file like {{template “home”}} it works fine. But When I do the same thing but using the template as a variable it shows the panic. For example, from go code I am sending a variable “mytmpl”: “home” and using it inside {{template .mytmpl}} and the “home” is also defined. But getting the panic.

// go code
    "title":    "Home",
    "username": name,
    "mytmpl":  "home",
<!-- html template -->
{{template .mytmpl}} // here is the panic

Because it needs to be a literal string statically known at compiletime (the templates compiletime). At least thats how I would read the documentation, as every example uses literal strings.

Can you provide full code for reproducing the error and describe what exactly you are trying to achieve?

There is good articles about go-templates, maybe you will found something useful:
