var data = {
gender: 'female',

return this.gender == 'male';

Thanks, less of a hack than my first attempt :)


var view = {
title: "Joe",
calc: function () {
return 2 + 4;

var output = Mustache.render("{{title}} spends {{calc}}", view);

why it only result as 'spends '?
who can help me...


I found that your code is in .html,but mine is in .mustache file.

can't understand why is this even working. what i did is something similar to this :
if output.gender == 'male' do maleIsDefault, else do femaleIsDefault, which will then assign values to male or female is default, anything between the opening and closing tag will be enabled..

but i want to know how this works
