In Mustache templates, sometimes you just want to test if an array exists, without iterating over it. However, {{#myArray}}...{{/myArray}} will iterate over myArray. What if you just want to check if myArray exists?

Solution: {{#myArray.0}}...{{/myArray.0}}

This will operate on the first (i.e., 0th) element of myArray.

I'm a software engineering consultant. This means I can help your company with your software engineering needs:

  • providing temporary manpower for short-staffed software projects

  • helping new software projects get off to a good architectural start

  • improving the performance and reliability of old, legacy software systems

  • doing an important investigation or small project that you've always wanted to do but haven't had time for

Since 1999, I have done software engineering projects for the Canadian government, for Silicon Valley startups, and for established Bay Area companies, for small companies and medium-sized companies, for successful commercial projects and open-source projects. 

Currently accepting small projects. If you have one, email or call me.
