JavaScript UI library Webix allows redefining the appearance of many elements through templating. For example, in tree view we can define the look of item through the following template:

webix.ui({
    view:"tree", data:tree_data,
    template:"{common.icon()} #value#"
});
simple template

 

Here you can see the two main components of webix templates: common helpers and property placeholders.

Property placeholders are markers that will be replaced with data from related data object.
