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.
