Dust vs Pug: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dust as "Asynchronous templates for the browser and node.js". 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. On the other hand, Pug is detailed as "Robust, elegant, feature rich template engine for nodejs". This project was formerly known as "Jade." Pug is a high performance template engine heavily influenced by Haml and implemented with JavaScript for Node.js and browsers.

Dust and Pug can be categorized as "Templating Languages & Extensions" tools.

Dust and Pug are both open source tools. Pug with 18.3K GitHub stars and 1.9K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Dust with 1.48K GitHub stars and 136 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Dust and Pug?
    TypeScript
    TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development. It's a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
    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.
    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.
    Smarty
    Facilitating the separation of presentation (HTML/CSS) from application logic. This implies that PHP code is application logic, and is separated from the presentation
    Jinja
    It is a full featured template engine for Python. It has full unicode support, an optional integrated sandboxed execution environment, widely used and BSD licensed.
