In this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots teaches us about Mustache Templates. Mustache Templates are a library that allow you to input any string and output a string. Unlike the ```template``` tag for HTML5, Mustaches are not restricted to HTML snippets. Mustache isn't the only game in town but it's Bart's favorite. I found this lesson fairly confusing along the way but when I got to the very end I think I understood it all! There was a key point in his instruction when he said to think of this as being like Mail Merge where you have a form letter and then a separate file that has the info that gets plugged into the form letter. Once he said that it became much more clear to me. Hope that little hint helps you too!
