Ember templating engine options



I am new to using ember.js and would like to use my own templating engine within ember. Is this possible? From what I can see this is not easily done but would like verification from people that have been using ember longer then I have.



Handlebars is a hard dependency for Ember I’m afraid.


It’s also a great library, worth getting to know well :smiley:


There is Also Emblem.js, you can a video of it at embercasts.com


Handlebars is great but hopefully the code base can be abstracted someday to the point where Ember could support any templating engine with the appropriate interfaces.


Actually, Ember can support just about any templating engine. However, the reality is that there is a lot of useful stuff that you get from Handlebars that would have to be reimplemented in another engine. Take a look at the contents of https://github.com/emberjs/ember.js/tree/master/packages/ember-handlebars to get an idea of what another solution would need.
