Here is a brief example of what you can do with Template.

var app = require('template')();
app.engine('tmpl', require('engine-lodash'));
 
/**
 * Create a custom view collection
 */
app.create('pages');
 
/**
 * Load views onto the collection (globs work too)
 */
 
app.page('welcome.tmpl', {path: 'welcome.tmpl', content: 'Hello, <%= name %>!'})
  .page('goodbye.tmpl', {path: 'goodbye.tmpl', content: 'Goodbye, <%= name %>!'});
 
// get a template 
var page = app.pages.get('welcome.tmpl');
 
// render the template 
page.render({name: 'Bob'}, function (errres) {
  if (err) return console.log(err);
  console.log(res.content);
  //=> 'Hello, Bob!' 
 
  app.pages.get('goodbye.tmpl')
    .render({name: 'Bob'}, function (errres) {
      if (err) return console.log(err);
      console.log(res.content);
      //=> 'Goodbye, Bob!' 
    });
});
