minstache

Mini mustache template engine.

Installation

$ npm install minstache
$ component install visionmedia/minstache

minstache(1)

The minstache(1) executable can compile a file to a valid stand-alone commonjs module for you, there's no need to have minstache as a dependency:

hello.mustache:

Hello {{name}}! {{^authenticated}}<a href="/login">login</a>{{/authenticated}}

convert it:

$ minstache < hello.mustache > hello.js

hello.js:

module.exports = function anonymous(obj) {

  function escape(html) {
    return String(html)
      .replace(/&/g, '&amp;')
      .replace(/"/g, '&quot;')
      .replace(/</g, '&lt;')
      .replace(/>/g, '&gt;');
  };

  function section(obj, prop, negate, str) {
    var val = obj[prop];
    if ('function' == typeof val) return val.call(obj, str);
    if (negate) val = !val;
    if (val) return str;
    return '';
  };

  return "Hello " + escape(obj.name) + "! " + section(obj, "authenticated", true, "<a href=\"/login\">login</a>") + "\n"
}

API

minstache(string, [obj])

Compile and render the given mustache string with optional context obj.

minstache.compile(string)

Compile the mustache string to a stand-alone Function accepting a context obj.

Divergence

Partials are not supported, this lib is meant to be a small template engine solution for stand-alone component templates. If your template takes "partials" then pass other rendered strings to it. If you need a full-blown mustache solution Hogan.js is still great.

Minstache uses {{!name}} for unescaped properties.
