Unable to import HandleBarsTemplateEngine even when I have added the dependency

Tried using both IDE and command line. I also tried other template engines present on the spark project page.

try updating the maven remote repo. You can do so by going to preferences -> build, execution,deployment -> build tools -> maven. Check to when your maven remote repo was last updated if it hasn't been recently update by clicking on the url and clicking update.

The shorthand Gradle notation wasn't working for me either (IntelliJ 2017). Try commenting out the shorthand Handlebars line in build.gradle and replacing it with: compile group: 'com.sparkjava', name: 'spark-template-handlebars', version: '2.5.5'

Refresh Gradle and it should work.
