JS Template helpers

Django Ember provide 2 template tags to ease the JS templating: handlebars and verbatim


The {% handlebars %} allow to easily write handlebars template for Ember.js. Call the template tag, and write your Handlebars template

{% handlebars "tpl-infos" %}
    {{total}} {% trans "result(s)." %}
    <p>{% trans "Min" %}: {{min}}</p>
    <p>{% trans "Max" %}: {{max}}</p>
{% endhandlebars %}

The following block with end-up in your page

<script type="text/x-handlebars" data-template-name="tpl-infos">
    {{total}} result(s).
    <p>Min: {{min}}</p>
    <p>Max: {{max}}</p>


A {% verbatim %} tag is available to escape a specific part. For example, you may want a subpart of your template to be rendered by Django

<script type="text/x-handlebars" id="tpl-django-form">
        {% verbatim %}
            {{#if id}}<h1>{{ id }}</h1>{{/if}}
        {% endverbatim %}
        {{ yourform.as_p }}
