Hey there,

for a project of mine, we needed to load templates on demand.
This introduces the loadTemplates() api, including unit-tests. We based our work off of v0.9.

it achieves a similar functionality to cbas' loading of external files. ( His functionality could easily be implemented on top of this commit.

I included unit tests, in case you're curious, If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

I was adding the functionality for partials. This works the same way as partials do in ruby: include a leading underscore. This works quite well for me, but i'm open for comments.

I think the following line is misplaced in the current version
self[script.hasClass('partial') ? 'addPartial' : 'addTemplate'](script.attr%28'id'%29, text);

i think it should go inside the
if (!script.attr('src')) {

Hi guys, really sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this stuff. We've been crazy busy putting on KRTConf and launching andbang. Not to mention bringing on a handful of new folks. Anyway, I wrote an explanation on the other request by cbas. Just adding it here as well. Thank you for doing this, I hope it worked great for your projects, but I don't quite think it's the right fit to apply it for everyone. Thanks for understanding.
