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.

        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 Jade when writing HTML, which is much easier to read and maintain. We compile it to HTML before deploying it though, and don't use Jade's client-side rendering features.

        We use Jade for constructing our modular UI. We also rely on Jade interpolation to pass reactive and static values from our Express server.

        Nice templating system, but lacks proper namespacing for non-html / xml data.
