Flexible and production-ready Mustache templates for MacOS Cocoa and iOS


GRMustache is an implementation of Mustache templates for MacOS Cocoa and iOS.

It ships with built-in goodies and extensibility hooks that let you avoid the strict minimalism of the genuine Mustache language when you need it.

September 13, 2014: GRMustache 7.3.0 is out. Release notes

System requirements

GRMustache targets iOS down to version 4.3, MacOS down to 10.6 Snow Leopard (without garbage collection), and only depends on the Foundation framework.

Swift developers: You can use GRMustache from Swift. However, you can only render Objective-C objects. Instead, consider using GRMustache.swift, a pure Swift implementation of GRMustache. You'd be an early adopter, and that would make me happy.

How To

1. Setup your Xcode project

You have three options, from the simplest to the hairiest:

2. Start rendering templates

#import "GRMustache.h"


// Renders "Hello Arthur!"
NSString *rendering = [GRMustacheTemplate renderObject:@{ @"name": @"Arthur" } fromString:@"Hello {{name}}!" error:NULL];
// Renders the `Profile.mustache` resource of the main bundle
NSString *rendering = [GRMustacheTemplate renderObject:user fromResource:@"Profile" bundle:nil error:NULL];

Reuse templates in order to avoid parsing the same template several times:

GRMustacheTemplate *template = [GRMustacheTemplate templateFromResource:@"Profile" bundle:nil error:nil];
rendering = [template renderObject:arthur error:NULL];
rendering = [template renderObject:barbara error:NULL];
rendering = ...
