Dust vs Mustache: What are the differences?

Developers describe Dust as "Asynchronous templates for the browser and node.js". Dust is a JavaScript templating engine designed to provide a clean separation between presentation and logic without sacrificing ease of use. It is particularly well-suited for asynchronous and streaming applications. On the other hand, Mustache is detailed 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.

Dust and Mustache belong to "Templating Languages & Extensions" category of the tech stack.

Dust and Mustache are both open source tools. It seems that Mustache with 13.2K GitHub stars and 2.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Dust with 1.48K GitHub stars and 136 GitHub forks.
