Handlebars instead of Sightly HTL

tuv2187

Can I use the handlebars to build my components for a website, if yes what are the limitations of using Handlebars over Sightly?

Is it advisable to create my own handlebar scripting engine or I can use the one being used for SCF? If I use AEM Communities Handlebars Scripting Engine is there any licensing complication that I need to be aware of?

HTL Is considered best practice by Adobe to build components.

However - he is a PODCAST by a community member that may be helpful to you: http://aempodcast.com/2015/javascript/server-side-handlebars-aem/#.XDbJcVxKiUk

Yes I agree with Scott and he is right.

HTL aka Sightly is the preferred and recommended way to build the AEM components.
