I want to move app from Rails+Liquid, is Blaze replacement for Liquid?


#1

Hey meteor community!

Let’s imagine that you have an app that allows people fully customizing layout (to end-users) using Liquid markup/templating engine used with Rails. Now, if you would like to convert Rails+Liquid app to Meteor what would you use? Blaze perhaps? Or there’s something else, something better?

I’m not sure if this will make sense but keep in mind that layout will be edited by the end-user so React/JSX should not be an option. I still don’t fully understand Meteor/React/JSX so sorry if I just said something really stupid.

Thanks a bunch guys!

Small bump in case someone can confirm this for me.

Thanks a bunch! :slight_smile:

Yeah the Blaze syntax/capabilities is very similar to Liquid, minus reactivity.

Could probably do this with React too, it’s just data-driven UI, but would be trickier with any dynamic DOM manipulation using jQuery etc.
