    Handlebars Kit

    This is a fork of the handlebars-helpers created by Jon Schlinkert.

    Motivations for forking

    • To minimise the number of dependencies, reducing the maintenance effort
    • To remove potentially risky helpers (such as any that interact with the file system)
    • To increase the number of test cases and resulting test coverage

    You might also be interested in template-helpers.

    Install

    Install with npm:

    $ npm i handlebars-kit

    Install with yarn:

    $ yarn add handlebars-kit

    Usage

    The main export returns a function that needs to be called to expose the object of helpers.

    Get all helpers

    const helpers = require('handlebars-kit')();
    //=> returns object with all (130+) helpers

    Get a specific helper collection

    Helper collections are exposed as getters, so only the helpers you want will be required and loaded.

    const helpers = require('handlebars-kit');
    const math = helpers.math();
    //=> only the `math` helpers
    
    const helpers = require('handlebars-kit');
    const array = helpers.array();
    //=> only the `collections` helpers

    Get multiple helpers collections

    Helper collections are exposed as getters, so only the helpers you want will be required and loaded.

    const helpers = require('handlebars-kit')(['math', 'string']);
    //=> only the `math` and `string` helpers

    Optionally pass your own handlebars

    const handlebars = require('handlebars');
    const helpers = require('handlebars-kit')({
      handlebars: handlebars
    });
    
    // or for a specific collection
    const math = helpers.math({
      handlebars: handlebars
    });
