What is Dust?

Dust is a JavaScript templating engine designed to provide a clean separation between presentation and logic without sacrificing ease of use. It is particularly well-suited for asynchronous and streaming applications.

What is Handlebars.js?

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.

What is Mustache?

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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          Used Handlebars to decouple the html from javascript, hence makes it more manageable.
