ERB template engine for Ruby

Erubi is a ERB template engine for Ruby. It is a simplified fork of Erubis, using the same basic algorithm, with the following differences

  • Handles postfix conditionals when using escaping e.g. <= foo if bar >
  • Supports frozen_string_literal true in templates via freeze option
  • Works with Ruby’s -enable-frozen-string-literal option
  • Automatically freezes strings for template text when Ruby optimizes it on Ruby 2.1+
  • Escapes ‘ apostrophe when escaping for better XSS protection
  • Has 6x faster escaping on Ruby 2.3+ by using cgi/escape
  • Has 86 smaller memory footprint
  • Does no monkey patching Erubis adds a method to Kernel
  • Uses an immutable design all options passed to the constructor, which returns a frozen object
  • Has simpler internals 1 file, <150 lines of code
  • Has an open development model Erubis doesn’t have a public source control repository or bug tracker
  • Is not dead Erubis hasn’t been updated since 2011
