Most javascript templating engines, parsing to string. Domtemplate has dom elements or require modules. You has direct access to Dom elements. In this case no need for jquery selectors etc.

Below is image to show difference between prod and dev packages.

In the development Environment you use runtime version of package, which one parse on browser. For Production you use compiled app version, where is no need for parser and coder.


You need to install nodejs and grunt CLI globally npm -g install grunt-cli

<div src="buttonA/buttonA" tp-type="cp" tp-name="testButton" ></div>

Placeholder - <pl></pl> use as containers in template, also can use in javascript as access to elements

<pl tp-name="testButton" tp-tag="h2" ></pl>
