An engine for Mincer that compiles Handlebars templates for use with Ember

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import mincerEmberHbsEngine from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/mincer-ember-hbs-engine';


A Mincer engine to for serving Ember-friendly Handlebars templates.

Mincer is a badass JavaScript port of Sprockets that makes it super-duper easy to serve dynamically generated assets in your connect or express app. You'll want to be familiar with its use before you try using this package.

Note*: this engine overrides the built-in Handlebars engine. Furthermore, there is no need to pair your template files with the built-in JST engine. Naming your files [my-template].hbs will do.

How to use this old thing

First, install the package:

npm install mincer-ember-hbs-engine --save

Then, wherever you've set up your Mincer environment:

// Requirements
var mincer = require('mincer');
var mincerEmberHbs = require('mincer-ember-hbs-engine');

// Asset pipeline
var pipeline = new mincer.Environment();
pipeline.registerEngine('.hbs', mincerEmberHbs);

Assuming a directory structure similar to this…


…you can now create a manifest for your templates, like this:


//= require_tree ./templates

But wait a second…

This engine never defines a default Ember.TEMPLATES object like the JST engine does!

Not to fear, Ember handles defining Ember.TEMPLATES as an empty object. Make sure that your templates aren't instantiated before Ember and you'll be A-OK.

What if I want to use JST templates at the same time?

At this time, the only way to achieve that would be to register this engine under a different file extension, leaving the default .hbs engine intact.


Uproarious applause goes to @ixti and @puzrin for their incredible work on Mincer. Further thanks for @Nthalk for a great example of a simple Mincer engine.
