Compiling Handlebars templates

The Handlebars template engine simplifies the building and maintaining of any markup or other readable files. Its familiar syntax, extensibility, and logic-less approach provides a great all-round template building experience. The engine is focused mainly on compiling templates to JSTs that are mostly used in the frontend of a web application.

In this recipe, we'll make use of the contrib-handlebars (0.8.0) plugin to compile a template that renders a minimalistic blog.

Getting ready

In this example, we'll work with the basic project structure we created in the Installing Grunt on a project recipe in Chapter 1, Getting Started with Grunt. Be sure to refer to it if you are not yet familiar with its contents.
