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.
Typescript has been a win because, in general, it makes codebase maintenance less brittle. It's significantly easier to refactor in TS than JS, which encourages incremental improvements, file re-organizing, etc. Our developers are happier with the overall development experience.
The downside is that TS sometimes exacerbates problems caused by Node's fragmented ecosystem. Sometimes @types/
If your project is big enough, I'd say TS is nearly always worth it, but it can make selecting libraries a pain.
Used for Node.js personal projects that I think will have a longer lifetime than others, or that are combined with a web front end component like Angular (to share types).
Generally a poor developer experience. Usage decreasing recently compared to other preferred programming languages/platforms.
TypeScript is used in Kuro (https://github.com/Marc3842h/kuro).
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.
Excellent design-time type checking and the ability for the Typescript compiler to attach typing information to metadata at compile time allows for relatively simple type checking at run-time as well.
We, our team can sleep comfortable at night know "x is undefined" will not occur in production. It's also really helpful as IDE help in code completion when they know types.
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.
