Using templates in javascript instead of server side

HI,
In my js code currently i have the following :
var htmlstring = $.parseHTML(htmlstring);
   $('body').append(htmlstring
This html string is created on server side from an html template... and looping over a list.

I wonder what are the performance issues this could cause if the html string i huge : $.parseHTML(htmlstring)
Other way i can think of is return an array of json objects.. And then create DOM on client side...
Dont know if creating a template on client side is possible ?
Also will that be easy for browser ?

pointifying some things :
1) There is an ajax call from client which returns an htmlString
This htmlString is created from a list and an html template
2) Performance isues with $.parseHTML(htmlstring)
3) How do i do the same thing by returning the json and creating html on client side.. some way so that browser does not probably have to create any DOM as template structure is already there.

Here is the template i am using on server side :
<div th:each="testList : ${testList}" class="test"
     th:attr="data-id=${testList.id},data-chat-id=${testList.conversationId},data-show-all=${showAll}">
  <div class="caption">
    <span th:if="${showAll} == true" th:text="'In: '+${testList.chatName}"/>
    <span th:if="${showAll} == false" th:text="${testList.userName}"/>
    <span th:text="${testList.date}"/>
  </div>
  <h3 th:text="${testList.title}"/>
  <div class="xyz"
       th:utext="${testList.preview}"/>
</div>

Check this page : https://docs.angularjs.org/tutorial/step_02
Welcome to angular.
In the example you can see we use this :
    <li ng-repeat="phone in phones">
      <span>{{phone.name}}</span>
      <p>{{phone.snippet}}</p>
    </li>

Open in new window

and this json :
  $scope.phones = [
    {
      name: 'Nexus S',
      snippet: 'Fast just got faster with Nexus S.'
    }, {
      name: 'Motorola XOOM™ with Wi-Fi',
      snippet: 'The Next, Next Generation tablet.'
    }, {
      name: 'MOTOROLA XOOM™',
      snippet: 'The Next, Next Generation tablet.'
    }
  ];

Open in new window

to create a nice list
