NANO - jQuery Template Engine

Basic Usage

Assuming you have following JSON response:

data= {
  user: {
    login: "tomek",
    first_name: "Thomas",
    last_name: "Mazur",
    account: {
      status: "active",
      expires_at: "2009-12-31"
    }
  }
}  

you can make:

$.nano("<p>Hello {user.first_name} {user.last_name}! Your account is <strong>{user.account.status}</strong></p>", data)

and you get ready string:

<p>Hello Thomas! Your account is <strong>active</strong></p>

Simple huh?
