Use Handlebars (with Swag) as the template engine in Punch

Handlebars Template Engine for Punch

Use this plugin to replace Punch's default Mustache template engine with Handlebars.

If present, Swag is used to provide useful Handlebars helpers.

  • Install the package

      npm install punch-engine-handlebars-swag

Please note that this is a temporary package, published as a stop-gap solution while waiting for the Swag support to be merged upstream (see the pull request).

  • Open your Punch project's configurations (config.json) and add the following:

      "plugins": {
          "template_engine": "punch-engine-handlebars-swag"
  • Now you can use Handlebars syntax for your project's templates.

    Make sure you save the templates with .handlebars extension.
