Mote.js is a spec-compliant, fast implementation of mustache templates.

For more information, check out the mote site.


Via Node, it's as you'd expect:

npm install mote

For crying out loud, why?

Mote began its life as an exercise. I was experimenting with Handlebars and dust, Twitter had just released hogan, and I thought it would be fun to write a mustache implementation.

I got it working, then set about trying to make it fast. I didn't think I could be competitive with the existing libraries, but I tried anyway. After all, this was just supposed to be a toy.

Much to my surprise, it ended up being really fast.
