JsRender: best-of-breed templating

Simple and intuitive, powerful and extensible, lightning fast

JsRender is a light-weight but powerful templating engine, highly extensible, and optimized for high-performance pure string-based rendering, without DOM or jQuery dependency.

JSRender and JsViews together provide the next-generation implementation of both JQuery Templates, and JQuery Data Link - and supersede those libraries.

Documentation and Downloads

Documentation, downloads, samples and API docs and tutorials are available on the website.
(Stay tuned at for additional content - coming incrementally as we move towards V1.0)

JsRender and JsViews

JsRender is used for rendering of templates to strings, ready for insertion in the DOM.
It is also used by the JsViews platform, which adds data binding to JsRender templates, and provides a fully-fledged MVVM platform for easily creating interactive data-driven single page apps and websites.


In addition to the demos at, and throughout the API documentation, see also:

  • the demos folder of this GitHub repository - available here as live samples.
