Mustache vs doT.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mustache as "Logic-less templates". 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. On the other hand, doT.js is detailed as "*A JavaScript template engine for Node.js *". It is a fastest and concise javascript template engine for Node.js and browsers. It was created in search of the fastest and concise JavaScript templating function with emphasis on performance under V8 and Node.js. It shows great performance for both Node.js and browsers.

Mustache and doT.js can be categorized as "Templating Languages & Extensions" tools.

Mustache and doT.js are both open source tools. It seems that Mustache with 13.3K GitHub stars and 2.31K forks on GitHub has more adoption than doT.js with 4.3K GitHub stars and 947 GitHub forks.
