Plugin to compile mustache templates as static html

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

shell npm install grunt-mcompile --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

js grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-mcompile');
js grunt.initConfig({
mcompile: {
options: {   // Task-specific options go here. },
your_target: {   // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. },
},
})

A string value that is used to do has the root location of your mustache template files.

A string value that is used to do has the root location of your mustache data files.

js grunt.initConfig({
mcompile: {
options: {},
files: {
'dest/': [src/*.html'],
},
},
})
js grunt.initConfig({
mcompile: {
options: {
templateRoot: '_data/templates/',
dataRoot: '_data/json/',
},
files: {
'dest/' : ['src/*.html'],
},
},
})

To use the task simply add the data attributes in your source html as follows.

<div data-mustacheTemplate="_data/test.mustache" data-mustacheData="_data/test.json">No JS data</div>

The element will be replaced with the mustache template.

Contributing In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
