A few examples of odd behavior.

The template for our experiments:

template = {}
Rails.configuration.handlebars.templates_root = 'app'
t.send :template_path, 'app/templates/app/example' # => "templates/example"

In previous example you can see that all instances of app directory removed, not only the root one.

Rails.configuration.handlebars.templates_root = 'app/templates'
t.send :template_path, 'app/templates/app/example' # => "app/templates/app/example"

In last example root is not removed at all.

yep probably bad naming... Or need to rethink this option. The original use case was not to remove root, but a folder somewhere in the path. In my app I use it like this :

Rails.configuration.handlebars.templates_root = 'templates'
t.send :template_path, 'app/templates/example' # => "app/example"

I understand, that this is confusing and will fix it
The best option is to make it behave as 'root'
