Haml (HTML Abstraction Markup Language) is a layer on top of HTML or XML that's designed to express the structure of documents in a non-repetitive, elegant, and easy way by using indentation rather than closing tags and allowing Ruby to be embedded with ease. It was originally envisioned as a plugin for Ruby on Rails, but it can function as a stand-alone templating engine.

Inspired by ctemplate, Mustache is a framework-agnostic way to render logic-free views. As ctemplates says, "It emphasizes separating logic from presentation: it is impossible to embed application logic in this template language. Think of Mustache as a replacement for your views. Instead of views consisting of ERB or HAML with random helpers and arbitrary logic, your views are broken into two parts: a Ruby class and an HTML template.

Erector is a Builder-like view framework, inspired by Markaby but overcoming some of its flaws. In Erector all views are objects, not template files, which allows the full power of object-oriented programming (inheritance, modular decomposition, encapsulation) in views.

Inversion is a templating system for Ruby. It uses the "Inversion of Control" principle to decouple the contents and structure of templates from the code that uses them, making it easier to separate concerns, keep your tests simple, and avoid polluting scopes with ephemeral data.
