TL;DR: who's testing out the non-Knockout
I have a design in my head that separates code and presentation in a
user-facing template system and is based on the Scribunto codebase.
The idea would be to combine handlebar's very simple user-facing
syntax with Scribunto's code editor for the non-presentational
aspects. Every template would have a (possibly-empty) piece of code
associated with it. Code is edited with a code editor, the
presentation is edited with visual editor.
That said, this is strictly a weekend/airplane trip project for me at
the moment, and I keep getting distracted by hacking on Scribunto/JS
and v8js and node, all of which are (strictly speaking) not necessary
for the basic idea, but are fun to hack on.
The last time I spent a chunk of time on this, I added basic
handlebars support to gwicke's TAssembly prototype, which really is
very very fast.
