Some years ago it seemed to me like JS template engines (Pug, Nunjucks & co.) were all the rage, but I haven't been hearing a lot about them lately?
Recently I went on YouTube to look for some materials on Pug/ Nunjucks/ Handlebars, and the majority of results I got were old stuff from around 2-4 years ago. I checked on Google Trends and searches for the phrase "template engine" seem to be gradually decreasing - and I'm not really seeing them in the requirements for frontend dev positions, either.
Is this because JS templating engines have been sidelined? Or is it just assumed now that every web dev will have had some experience with them? 🤔
