<p><code>mustache</code> -- Mustache processor</p>
<pre><code>mustache &lt;YAML> &lt;FILE>
mustache --compile &lt;FILE>
mustache --tokens &lt;FILE>
<p>Mustache is a logic-less templating system for HTML, config files,
<p>The <code>mustache</code> command processes a Mustache template preceded by YAML
frontmatter from standard input and prints one or more documents to
standard output.</p>
<p>YAML frontmatter beings with <code>---</code> on a single line, followed by YAML,
ending with another <code>---</code> on a single line, e.g.</p>
names: [ {name: chris}, {name: mark}, {name: scott} ]
<p>If you are unfamiliar with YAML, it is a superset of JSON. Valid JSON
should work fine.</p>
<p>After the frontmatter should come any valid Mustache template. See
mustache(5) for an overview of Mustache templates.</p>
<p>For example:</p>
Hi {{name}}!
<p>Now let's combine them.</p>
<pre><code>$ cat data.yml
names: [ {name: chris}, {name: mark}, {name: scott} ]
$ cat template.mustache
Hi {{name}}!
$ cat data.yml template.mustache | mustache
Hi chris!
Hi mark!
Hi scott!
<p>If you provide multiple YAML documents (as delimited by <code>---</code>), your
template will be rendered multiple times. Like a mail merge.</p>
<p>For example:</p>
<pre><code>$ cat data.yml
name: chris
name: mark
name: scott
$ cat template.mustache
Hi {{name}}!
$ cat data.yml template.mustache | mustache
Hi chris!
Hi mark!
Hi scott!
<p>By default <code>mustache</code> will try to render a Mustache template using the
YAML frontmatter you provide. It can do a few other things, however.</p>
<dt><code>-c</code>, <code>--compile</code></dt><dd><p>Print the compiled Ruby version of a given template. This is the
code that is actually used when rendering a template into a
string. Useful for debugging but only if you are familiar with
Mustache's internals.</p></dd>
<dt><code>-t</code>, <code>--tokens</code></dt><dd><p>Print the tokenized form of a given Mustache template. This can be
used to understand how Mustache parses a template. The tokens are
handed to a generator which compiles them into a Ruby
string. Syntax errors and confused tags, therefor, can probably be
identified by examining the tokens produced.</p></dd>
<p>If you have RubyGems installed:</p>
<pre><code>gem install mustache
<pre><code>$ mustache data.yml template.mustache
$ cat data.yml | mustache - template.mustache
$ mustache -c template.mustache
$ cat &lt;&lt;data | ruby mustache - template.mustache
