Emblem.jsEmblem.js is an indentation-based templating language that prints Handlebars.js templates. Specifically, it targets Ember.js templates.
Emblem's syntax most closely resembles that of the Slim templating language. Please see the Emblem docs site for a full explanation of the syntax.
Also check out the Embercast on Emblem.js
Installation with Ember-CLITo use Emblem with Ember-CLI, use the ember-cli-emblem addon.
Handlebars Version DependenciesAs of Emblem 0.5.0, the compiler is really a template printer. Previous versions compiled to Handlebars AST nodes and were forced to target specific versions of Handlebars. The move to printing has eliminated that restriction, and Emblem 0.5.0 should be compatible with any version of Handlebars.
For posterity, here is a history of Emblem and Handelbars compatibility across revisions.
- HTMLBars: Emblem 0.5.0+
- Handlebars 2.0.0: Use Emblem ~0.4.0, or 0.5.0+
- Handlebars 1.0.0: Use Emblem ~0.3.0, or 0.5.0+
- Handlebars <= 1.0.0.rc4: Use Emblem <= 0.2.9, or 0.5.0+
Using Emblem in your applicationPrevious versions of Emblem have supported a "vanilla" Handlebars mode. The intent was that Ember-specific helpers could be avoided.
Emblem 0.5.0 dropped support for vanilla template compilation, but we would like to bring it back. Please refer to VANILLAHANDLEBARS.md for more context.
