Hogan.js vs Mustache: What are the differences?

Hogan.js: A compiler for the Mustache templating language. 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; Mustache: Logic-less templates. 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.

Hogan.js and Mustache can be categorized as "Templating Languages & Extensions" tools.

"Lightweight" is the primary reason why developers consider Hogan.js over the competitors, whereas "Dead simple templating" was stated as the key factor in picking Mustache.

Hogan.js and Mustache are both open source tools. It seems that Mustache with 13.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hogan.js with 5K GitHub stars and 437 GitHub forks.

      We use Mustache, a logic-less templating language, to represent our models as HTML. While ‘harnessing the full power of [INSERT YOUR FAVORITE LANGUAGE HERE] in your templates’ sounds like a good idea, it seems that in practice it requires a lot of developer discipline to maintain comprehensible code. We’ve been very happy with the ‘less is more’ approach of Mustache, which allows us to re-use template code without encouraging us to mingle it with our client logic and make a mess of things.

      Mustache is a simple logicless template language.

      It is lightweight, and currently suits my templating needs.

      I use it, in lieu of things like React SSR etc.
