Mustache vs Twig: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mustache as "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. On the other hand, Twig is detailed as "A flexible, fast, and secure template engine". It is a modern template engine for PHP. It is flexible, fast, and secure. Its syntax originates from Jinja and Django templates.

Mustache and Twig belong to "Templating Languages & Extensions" category of the tech stack.

Mustache is an open source tool with 13.2K GitHub stars and 2.31K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mustache's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Mustache has a broader approval, being mentioned in 270 company stacks & 142 developers stacks; compared to Twig, which is listed in 17 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.
