src/partials/header.handlebars

<h1>Header</h1>

gulpfile.js

var gulp = require('gulp');
var handlebars = require('gulp-compile-handlebars');
var rename = require('gulp-rename');

gulp.task('default', function () {
	var templateData = {
		firstName: 'Kaanon'
	},
	options = {
		ignorePartials: true, //ignores the unknown footer2 partial in the handlebars template, defaults to false
		partials : {
			footer : '<footer>the end</footer>'
		},
		batch : ['./src/partials'],
		helpers : {
			capitals : function(str){
				return str.toUpperCase();
			}
		}
	}

	return gulp.src('src/hello.handlebars')
		.pipe(handlebars(templateData, options))
		.pipe(rename('hello.html'))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));
});

dist/hello.html

<h1>Header</h1>
<p>Hello Kaanon</p>
<p>HELLO! KAANON</p>
<footer>the end</footer>

Options

  • ignorePartials : ignores any unknown partials. Useful if you only want to handle part of the file
  • partials : Javascript object that will fill in partials using strings
  • batch : Javascript array of filepaths to use as partials
  • helpers: javascript functions to stand in for helpers used in the handlebars files
  • compile: compile options. See handlebars reference for possible values

handlebars.Handlebars

You can access the Handlebars library from the handlebars.Handlebars property.

var handlebars = require('gulp-compile-handlebars');
var safestring = new handlebars.Handlebars.SafeString('<strong>HELLO! KAANON</strong>');

Works with gulp-data

Use gulp-data to pass a data object to the template based on the handlebars file being processed. If you pass in template data this will be extended with the object from gulp-data.

See gulp-data for usage examples.
