plustache - mustache templates for C++

Basic port of mustache templating to C++.

Motivation

I just wanted to port mustache and build simple templating for C++. And I am still trying hard to keep it simple.

Usage

Simple Usage

Create a template:

<h1>{{title}}</h1>
Hi I am {{name}}.
I like {{thing}}.

Fill the context:

ObjectType ctx;
ctx["title"] = "About";
ctx["name"] = "Daniel";
ctx["thing"] = "turtles";

Instantiate template class and render the template:

template_t t;
string result = t.render(template, ctx);

Result:

<h1>About</h1>
Hi I am Daniel.
I like turtles.

Advanced Usage

Create the template:

<h1> {{title}} </h1>
<ul>
  {{# friends}}
    <li> {{name}}</li>
    <li> {{job}}</li>
    <li> {{status}}</li>
  {{/ friends}}
</ul>

Create the context:

// create types
context ctx;
CollectionType c;
ObjectType jim;
ObjectType john;
ObjectType jack;
// Fill values
ctx.add("title", "My friends");
jim["name"] = "Jim";
jim["job"] = "Wizard";
jim["status"] = "Eating";
john["name"] = "John";
john["job"] = "Rainbow Painter";
john["status"] = "Sleeping";
jack["name"] = "Jack";
jack["job"] = "Unicorn Trainer";
jack["status"] = "Riding";
// enter data
c.push_back(jim);
c.push_back(john);
ctx.add("friends", c);
// also possible
ctx.add("friends", jack);

Render the template:

template_t t;
string result = t.render(template, ctx);
