The Grails `handlebars-asset-pipeline` is a plugin that provides handlebars template precompiler support to asset-pipeline.

Simply create files in your standard `assets/javascripts` folder with extension `.handlebars` or 'hbs'.

By default the templateRoot for your template names is specified as blank. This means that any handlebars file within the root assets/javascripts folder will utilize its file name (without the extension) as its template name. Or a file in `templates/show.handlebars` would be named `templates/show`. If templates is set as the templateRoot than it would be named `show`

It is also possible to change the template path seperator for templatenames to be used by handlebars:

grails {
	assets {
		handlebars {
			templateRoot = 'templates'
			templatePathSeperator = "/"

See the Template Names section for how template names are calculated.
