Created in search of the fastest and concise JavaScript templating function with emphasis on performance under V8 and nodejs. It shows great performance for both nodejs and browsers.

doT.js is fast, small and has no dependencies.

Features:

custom delimiters
runtime evaluation
runtime interpolation
compile-time evaluation
partials support
conditionals support
array iterators
encoding
control whitespace - strip or preserve
streaming friendly
use it as logic-less or with logic, it is up to you

Docs, live playground and samples:

http://olado.github.com/doT (todo: update docs with new features added in version 1.0.0)

New in version 1.0.0:

Node module now supports auto-compilation of dot templates from specified path: (see index.js)

var dots = require("dot").process({ path: "./views"});

Added parameters support in partials:

{{##def.macro:param:
    <div>{{=param.foo}}</div>
#}}

{{#def.macro:myvariable}}

Compile tool to compile dot templates into js files (thanks to @Katahdin https://github.com/Katahdin/dot-packer ):

./bin/dot-packer -s examples/views -d out/views

Notes:

doU.js is here only so that legacy external tests do not break. Use doT.js.
doT.js with doT.templateSettings.append=false provides the same performance as doU.js.
