This utility recursively compiles a directory containing dust.js templates into either a single javascript file or a file per template. It also provides API access to the underlying logic that makes it all tick, so it can be embedded into express for example.

I was heavily inspired by Dan McGrady's duster.js (and originally this was just a fork!), but quite quickly outgrew the provided functionality of his tool.


npm install -g dusty


dusty --out /destination/path /path/to/dust/templates


dusty --single --out /destination/path/template.js /path/to/dust/templates

The former will compile the templates into separate files under the directory specified in the argument to --out and the latter will compile them into a single package, again specified with --out.
