        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.

        django와 flask에서 html을 다룰때 jinja를 통해 다룹니다. 이것으로 템플릿을 나누어 header, footer를 별도로 관리하며 | 를 사용해 함수를 만들어 데이터를 수정하기도 합니다.

        특히 summernote를 이용과 해쉬태그 만들기를 하면서 jinja에 대한 이해가 높아졌습니다.
