How to build reusable HTML components?

Step 1

Declare a new block with the associated template in the HTML JSON configuration file:

source
+--- layout
     +--- html.json
{
  "block.product": "template/block/product.html"
}

Step 2

Add the block template HTML content:

source
+--- template
     +------- block
              +---- product.html
<div class="product {{ $class }}">
    <a href="{{ url }}{{ $_path }}">
        <img src="{{ url }}media/catalog/{{ $image }}" alt="{{ $name }}" />
    </a>
    <h2>
        <a href="{{ url }}{{ $_path }}">{{ $name }}</a>
    </h2>
    <div class="price">US$ {{ $price }}</div>
</div>

There are 3 ways to call the block in the HTML content.
