If you’ve enjoyed working with Data View Web Parts (DVWPs) and XSL in the past, SharePoint 2013’s Display Templates may be just the right thing for you. If you consider yourself a front end coder, they may be just for you as well. Display Templates are a new way to format and display data in SharePoint 2013 for search results, the Content Search Web Part (CSWP) , Refinement Web Parts, and more.

Display Templates use HTML and JavaScript rather than XSL to format data on the client side. We can develop our own Display Templates and combine them with third party tools to create rich, powerful content rendering to equal the best Web sites out there. We’ll go through the anatomy of some of the most useful out of the box Display Templates and look at how you can build your own useful customizations.
