Nova

About

Nova was designed and developed mainly as a 'fun' project with the goal of creating a template engine that was fully written as JavaScript (not JSON), to compliment the current state some apps are at of "Client, Server, Database" using JavaScript.

Nova will let you write templates with the full power of JavaScript and Node.JS, in a format your current IDE or editor already provides Syntax hilighting for!

Almost every other template engine has some unique format to it, in which no-ones editor can provide syntax & highlighting support for. But Nova will be 100% pure JavaScript, letting your editor provide nice features such as syntax checking, syntax hilighting, code completion, source formatting, indentation settings etc.

Nova does not conform to the current day ideology of what a template engine should or should not do. Node provides you the tools to do a job, and lets you do your job however you please.

Because Markdown seems pretty inconsistent with rendering between different implementations, I opted to write the documentation in HTML.
