Blade vs Mustache: What are the differences?
Blade: A Java Web Framework. Blade is a lightweight MVC framework. It is based on the principles of simplicity and elegance; Mustache: Logic-less templates. Mustache is a logic-less template syntax. It can be used for HTML, config files, source code - anything. It works by expanding tags in a template using values provided in a hash or object. We call it "logic-less" because there are no if statements, else clauses, or for loops. Instead there are only tags. Some tags are replaced with a value, some nothing, and others a series of values.
Blade can be classified as a tool in the "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category, while Mustache is grouped under "Templating Languages & Extensions".
Blade and Mustache are both open source tools. It seems that Mustache with 13.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Blade with 4.83K GitHub stars and 1.02K GitHub forks.

What tools integrate with Blade?
We use Mustache, a logic-less templating language, to represent our models as HTML. While ‘harnessing the full power of [INSERT YOUR FAVORITE LANGUAGE HERE] in your templates’ sounds like a good idea, it seems that in practice it requires a lot of developer discipline to maintain comprehensible code. We’ve been very happy with the ‘less is more’ approach of Mustache, which allows us to re-use template code without encouraging us to mingle it with our client logic and make a mess of things.
Mustache is a simple logicless template language.
It is lightweight, and currently suits my templating needs.
I use it, in lieu of things like React SSR etc.
