A friend recently recommended I take a look at the Mustache templating engine. It’s clean, simple and designer friendly, and promotes logic minimization on the template side (I don’t like the term “logic-less”, I don’t think you can get away with absolutely zero logic).
To try it out I decided to build a simple Struts 2 based web app, but I found that there was no out-of-the-box integration between the two. Thankfully both frameworks are easily extendable so I managed to get them playing along quite easily.
At my company we are evaluating which web development framework we will use for the next few years.
But we think it’s time to re-evaluate and move on to a newer/better/friendlier framework.
In this post I’ll present you with our candidates and the criteria we are evaluating each framework with. Over the next weeks I’ll post the actual evaluation of each framework and finally what our choice is and why.
