#1253 Mustache for fantom

What is Mustache?

Mustache is a logic-free template engine inspired by ctemplate and et.

As ctemplates says, "It emphasizes separating logic from presentation: it is impossible to embed application logic in this template language".


I just needed a template engine for the application I develop with Fantom and I really like the idea of Mustache.


using mustache
Mustache template := Mustache("Hello, {{ name }}!".in)

Returns following:

Hello, world!

To get the language-agnostic overview of Mustache's template syntax and more examples of Mustache templates, see http://mustache.github.com/mustache.5.html.

Where to get it?

You can get the latest sources at http://github.com/vspy/mustache.


Mustache for fantom is licensed under the MIT license.

I’m not a lawyer and this is not a legal advice, but it is free to use in any projects. Free as in “free beer”. Should you have any questions on licensing, consult your attorney.

IDE support


Thanks to Juvenn Woo for mustache.vim. It is included under the contrib/ directory. See http://gist.github.com/323622 for installation instructions.


mustache-mode.el is included under the contrib/ directory for any Emacs users. Based on Google's tpl-mode for ctemplates, it adds support for Mustache's more lenient tag values and includes a few commands for your editing pleasure. See http://gist.github.com/323619 for installation instructions.


Mustache.tmbundle See http://gist.github.com/323624 for installation instructions.

Enjoy !

Very cool, nice to lots of new projects with different web APIs

Yes, this is cool. Now I use MiniTemplator. I go to try Mustache.

But how enable Mustache for my pods? (For MiniTemplator: I just add miniTemplator.jar to classpath.)

Build it with

fan build.fan

And then just add it as a dependency to your project:

depends = [
  "sys 1.0", 
  "util 1.0",
  "mustache 1.0"

BTW, we moved {{mustache}} to bitbucket, so check the https://bitbucket.org/xored/mustache for latest version.

I just finished making fantom {{mustache}} implementation specs-compliant. Now it fully satisfies mustache specs v1.1.2 requirements.

So, if you are using it in your project please update to the latest version ( https://bitbucket.org/xored/mustache ) and check if it still works for you :-)

If you think that something is wrong, do not hesitate to open issues at https://bitbucket.org/xored/mustache/issues

I have idea. When I render page then sometimes I need few objs for context. I suggest that context accepts List and searches param in every obj in List. (Now context accepts Map and Obj only.)

I think, Mustache is matter because Mustache is one of two template engine on Fantom.
