What is 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.

What is Pug?

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.

What is Slim Lang?

Slim is a template language whose goal is to reduce the view syntax to the essential parts without becoming cryptic. It started as an exercise to see how much could be removed from a standard html template (<, >, closing tags, etc...). As more people took an interest in Slim, the functionality grew and so did the flexibility of the syntax.

      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.

      We use Jade when writing HTML, which is much easier to read and maintain. We compile it to HTML before deploying it though, and don't use Jade's client-side rendering features.

      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.

      We use Jade for constructing our modular UI. We also rely on Jade interpolation to pass reactive and static values from our Express server.

      front-end 수업 때 들은 jade 입니다. html을 효과적으로 다룰 수 있고

      로 열고 닫을때 혼돈이 없어 좋아합니다. 현재 프로젝트에 gulp와 함께 붙이려는 계획을 갖고 있지만, 아직 연습이 더 필요하다고 생각됩니다.

      Nice templating system, but lacks proper namespacing for non-html / xml data.
