Blade vs Handlebars.js: What are the differences?
Developers describe Blade as "A Java Web Framework". Blade is a lightweight MVC framework. It is based on the principles of simplicity and elegance. On the other hand, Handlebars.js is detailed as "Minimal Templating on Steroids". Handlebars.js is an extension to the Mustache templating language created by Chris Wanstrath. Handlebars.js and Mustache are both logicless templating languages that keep the view and the code separated like we all know they should be.
Blade and Handlebars.js are primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" and "Templating Languages & Extensions" tools respectively.
Blade and Handlebars.js are both open source tools. It seems that Handlebars.js with 14.6K GitHub stars and 1.87K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Blade with 4.82K GitHub stars and 1.01K GitHub forks.

What tools integrate with Blade?
Its easy to link handlebars with SailsJS.
I have created a generator for it. Read through the README. Steps:-
Install the npm package. Generate the templates using suggested command in README. Update the config/views.js file as suggested. Thats it, It works.
Handlebars for me has taken a back seat since my full embrace of React, but previous to React it (along with its predecessor mustache) I used it heavily, both server and client side, in multiple languages.
The Handlebars templating engine is used by the Promethean TV Broadcast Center Tool to deliver dynamically generated html content from our web servers.
Also used by ghost. Extensive editing of templates to keep my theme running and change what the theme does when I run into limitations.
Our template engine! We combined hb with a powerful cache system we built on top of it.
