DustJS templates for Marionette. Overrides the Marionette.Renderer.render to allow dust rendering in the normal Marionette flow of execution. Bypasses Marionette TemplateCache as DustJS has its own cache.



If using a module loader like Requirejs, require the module in your client scripts after Marionette is loaded. Set the name of the compiled template as you template parameter in you view. Use Marionette as normal and the plugin will handle the rest.

function (_, Backbone) {
  return Backbone.Marionette.ItemView({
    template: 'nameOfTemplateInDustCache'

Make sure all modules defined above are set up correctly in you require config file. Make sure you use the AMD version of the plugin.


Simply add the non-amd version to your project after Marionette. Use the template in the same way as the AMD case.

Compiling templates

Templates must be compiled before using this plugin. This can be done in any way you choose, for example compiling all tempaltes at page load, or compiling the required template just before you use them.

It is recommended that you pre-compile all templates into a single javascript file for production. This can be done easily with Grunt and the grunt-dustjs plugin.
