(Non WP) Theme / template customizer

Hello everyone I hope someone anyone could show me how & where to start this. Could some Jedi please show me where to start if i want to learn to create a theme customizer?

Im not talking about wordpress customizer that is now apparently in as well

Simple, client side html templating. For example i have an html email template, and i would like to have a customizer so user can easily edit headline or other text, change colors, drag drop add remove blocks, etc; and at the end having this 'export html' function so the user can simply copy & paste in the html for their email client.

How or where do i need to start looking?

Thanks Ben

Do some resarch on handlebars.js, I think it may be what your looking for.
