templating-benchmarks

This project provides a framework for running benchmarks against multiple templating engines under Node.js.

Note: I upgraded the benchmarks to use Squirrelly v8

Table of Contents

Run Benchmarks

Note: running tests will fail on Node.js 14. Consider using nvm to run Node 10.x for this project

  1. Clone this repository
  2. npm install
  3. npm test (or make)

Current Results

The following results were collected with the following setup:

  • Node.js v10.19.0
  • HP Notebook
  • Processor: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7
  • Memory: 8 GB

Performance

Higher numbers are better.

Adding a New Comparison Group

Each comparison group should contain a data file (either data.json or data.js) and a set of templates to compare. The file extension of the template will be used to determine which engine should be used. If the data file has the .js extension then it should be a JavaScript module that exports the data. A sample directory structure is shown below:

templates
    ├── group1
    │   ├── data.js
    │   ├── template.dust
    │   └── template.marko
    ├── group2
    │   ├── data.json
    │   ├── template.dust
    │   └── template.marko
    ├── group3
    │   ├── data.json
    │   ├── template.dust
    │   ├── template.native-for.marko
    │   └── template.marko
    └── group4
        ├── data.json
        ├── template.dust
        └── template.marko

Adding a New Template Engine

To register a new templating engine, simply create a new module under the engines directory and it will automatically be loaded. See existing engine modules for supported methods and properties.
