What is an HBS file?

An HBS file is a template file created by Handlebars, a web template system. It contains a template written in HTML code and embedded with Handlebars expressions. An HBS file performs the same function as a .HANDLEBARS file.

Handlebars is a JavaScript library that helps developers create cleaner code. A Handlebars template includes a series of Handlebars expressions that look something like this: {{inputobject}}.

By applying input code to HBS templates, Handlebars users can efficiently generate HTML code for use in their development projects. The Ember web app development framework also makes use of HBS templates.

To deliver an HBS file to the browser, you must include it in the script tag, as shown below:

<script id="entry-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">

How to open an HBS file

You can open and view an HBS file using any text editor. However, if you intend to edit the file, you should open the file using a source code editor, such as NotePad++ or Atom. These applications provide helpful source code editing tools and highlight the file's syntax correctly.

An HBS file may also be a set list created by Line 6 POD HD Edit, a DAW application that enables you to edit instrument sounds. It contains up to 64 presets that change the settings for "FX," "AMPS," "Mixer," and "Controllers," which customize the sound of your instrument. Once loaded, an HBS file will replace the currently loaded Set list within the application.

To create the HBS file, customize your settings, select File → Save Setlist As..., name the file, choose the save location, and click Save.

To open the H5S file, double-click the file or select File → Open Setlist..., navigate to the file, and click Open.

In Windows, the default save location for H5B files is in the following directory:
\​My Documents\​Line 6\​Tones\​POD HD Edit\​Setlists

In Mac, the default save location for H5S files is in the following directory:

Haxball Stadium File

An HBS file may also be a text file used by Haxball, an online physics-based multiplayer soccer game. It contains text in JSON5 format that describes a stadium, which includes how the camera views gameplay, team spawning points, player and ball physics, how objects collide, and the stadium background appearance. HBS files are typically used to upload and share stadiums that other Haxball players can play in.

More Information

You can open HBS files with any text editor since the file stores JSON-formatted text. There are also several programs available that have been developed by players in the Haxball community that allow you to easily modify HBS files. However, the popular HaxPuck editor is not currently available.

When users finish modifying a stadium stored in an HBS file, they typically upload it to the Community page on the Haxball site. Other users can then play soccer in that stadium.
