This, I don’t get. Closure Templates are very much like JSP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion, etc. It sounds pretty much like what you do with ASP.NET’s Custom User Controls, or JSP’s Tag Libraries. Here’s what it’s on their website: “In contrast to traditional templating systems, in which you use one big template per page, you can think of Closure Templates as small components that you compose to form your user interface.” Go figure.
So, ultimately what do I think of Closure Tools? I really like Closure Compiler and this is something that I’ll definitely use. I don’t see the need for Closure Library and Closure Templates when we already have JQuery and server-side templating systems. I don’t know of any client-side templating systems, but I would figure that there’ll already be some out there.
