Pug vs Emblem.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Pug 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. On the other hand, Emblem.js is detailed as "An indentation-based templating language". It is compiled to Handlebars.js that can then be compiled straight to JavaScript, that is finally rendered as HTML.

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

Pug and Emblem.js are both open source tools. Pug with 18.6K GitHub stars and 1.9K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Emblem.js with 1.07K GitHub stars and 84 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Emblem.js 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
    Hogan.js
    Hogan.js is a 3.4k JS templating engine developed at Twitter. Use it as a part of your asset packager to compile templates ahead of time or include it in your browser to handle dynamic templates.
