    Summary

    Squirrelly is a modern, configurable, and blazing fast template engine implemented in JavaScript. It works out of the box with ExpressJS and the full version weighs only ~4KB gzipped.

    This is version 8 - a new, more powerful rewrite of Squirrelly. It adds multiple features (like filter parameters, whitespace control, partials, and template inheritance) to bring you a template engine with the power of Nunjucks, the simplicity of EJS, and the small bundle size of its earlier versions.

    Squirrelly v7 will continue to be maintained, and can be found at https://github.com/squirrellyjs/squirrelly/tree/v7.

    📜 Docs

    We know nobody reads through the long and boring documentation in the ReadMe anyway, so head over to the documentation website:

    📝 https://squirrelly.js.org

    📓 Examples

    Simple Template

    var myTemplate = "<p>My favorite kind of cake is: {{it.favoriteCake}}</p>"
    
    Sqrl.render(myTemplate, {favoriteCake: 'Chocolate!'})
    // Returns: '<p>My favorite kind of cake is: Chocolate!</p>
    

    Conditionals

    {{@if(it.somevalue === 1)}}
    Display this
    {{#else}}
    Display this
    {{/if}}
    

    Loops

    {{@each(it.somearray) => val, index}}
    Display this
    The current array element is {{val}}
    The current index is {{index}}
    {{/each}}
    

    ✔️ Tests

    Tests can be run with npm test. Multiple tests check that parsing, rendering, and compiling return expected results, formatting follows guidelines, and code coverage is at the expected level.

    Note: because we completely rewrote Version 8 and it has a separate Git history, this chart excludes the dozens of contributors to Version 7. Their contributions are deeply appreciated and many of their ideas and code contributions are being used in Squirrelly v8. Many of their contributions can be found in the v7 branch commit history.

    This project follows the all-contributors specification. Contributions of any kind are welcome!
