browserify transform for handlebars template files


A browserify transform for handlebar templates! Yay!

npm install browserify-handlebars

Make a handlebars template like so:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>{{ title }}</title>
<p>Hello there, {{name}}</p>

Now require() the handlebar template file in code like so:

var aTemplateFunction = require('./template.handlebars');
var html = aTemplateFunction({title: "An instantiated template!", name: "David"});

and run browserify with the transform option:

browserify -t browserify-handlebars entry-point.js

That's all!

This transform module packages the handlebars templates with the handlebars runtime, which is smaller than the complete handlebars library. This is good, because it means smaller bundle files for you.
