IDEA-Handlebars: Handlebars template plugin for Jetbrains IDEs

IDEA-Handlebars adds support for Handlebars templates to IDEs based on the Intellij IDEA platform (IntelliJ IDEA, IDEA Community Edition, RubyMine, PhpStorm, WebStorm, PyCharm, AppCode).

NEW: Auto-insert of close tags

The latest release adds auto-inserting of closing tags and improves the plugin's charset defaulting


  • To install the latest release (and get automatic updates), install this plugin using your IDE's plugin manager:
    • In Settings->Plugins, choose "Browse repositories". Find "Handlebars" on the list, right-click, and select "Download and Install"


  • Syntax error highlighting
  • Configurable syntax highlighting
  • Auto-insert of closing tags
  • Matched mustache pair highlighting
  • Full HTML highlighting, code completion, inspections, formatting and commenting for the HTML content in your Handlebars templates
  • Since Handlebars is a super-set of Mustache syntax, this plugin should greatly improve IDEA's editing experience for Mustache templates too
  • By default, files with the ".handlebars", ".hbs" or ".mustache" extensions are handled by this plugin

Future directions

  • See the pulls for a preview of in-progress and planned features


Special thanks

  • Bazaarvoice, my fantastic employer, for providing the time to work on this
  • Yehuda Katz for creating and maintaining Handlebars
  • The Jetbrains team for making such a great, extensible IDE platform
  • Extra special thanks to Jan Dolecek and the intellij-latte project (for having a clean code-base to learn from, and taking the time to make posts like this gem; these went a long way to making this plug-in possible)
