What is Mustache?

Mustache is a logic-less template syntax. It can be used for HTML, config files, source code - anything. It works by expanding tags in a template using values provided in a hash or object. We call it "logic-less" because there are no if statements, else clauses, or for loops. Instead there are only tags. Some tags are replaced with a value, some nothing, and others a series of values.
Mustache is a tool in the Templating Languages & Extensions category of a tech stack.
Mustache is an open source tool with 14.8K GitHub stars and 2.4K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Mustache's open source repository on GitHub
