It’s probably a great plugin… but I try to understand why a template language is needed. To me PHP is a template language.

What is the benefit of a template engine on top?

certainly creating html template code can be done in plain php. but…

mustache is imho as simple as a templating language can get without just being string replacement. being forced to create logicless templates really helps to apply MVC.

mustache templates can be parsed by more that one programming language. more than 40. thats great for modern ui design systems or if you have to use one.

atomic design
using partials nesting templates can be used for basic atomic design.

it has a {{ mustache }} just like me. :bearded_person:

At least if you were forced to use a template language like this, you’d hopefully not come up with something like this :scream:.

Lol that made me laugh a lot. Yes… spare a thought for me on this cold Friday evening working with that nonsense. At least i have beer. :slight_smile:

Just my opinion but i think it probably makes more sense to use Blade, which there is already a solution for.

Well, freedom of choice is always nice to have, even if it means using none of these plugins.

Cheers, :beers::beers:

And I love a lively community no matter if I have (immediate) use for a plugin or not. And it’s food for our newsletter :corn::carrot::potato: Thanks for sharing, @bnomei.

it is an awesome newsletter, love it when it hits my inbox. :sunny:

no worries. like with most of my plugins i take the extra mile to share them just to force myself to write better code.

i had to work with an existing collection of mustache templates. not creating them myself. so using blade was never an option at all. could happen to others. thats why i shared the plugin.
