Why front end projects use template engines?

・1 min read

Why front end developers make use of the template engine? What's the benefit of using them? And also one more question, does every project needs to be done with template engine? Or projects that scale needs to use template engine?

Did you find this post useful? Show some love!

I use template engines like EJS when an application involves rendering dynamic content in the html either from an API, Server or Database


If you're planning to send HTML over the wire you'll need a template engine, eh?


I am referring to template engines like Handlebar JS and EJS. In which context one should use them? I know that we can build projects without using them. But I am not sure at when it's right to use them.
