jHaml (GitHub: soyuka/jhaml, License: MIT, npm: @soyuka/jhaml)

jHaml is a Javascript implementation of the Haml templating engine which was originally written in Ruby. When I was still doing a lot of Rails I first got introduced to Haml. I was able to change erb like this:

<section class=”container”>
  <h1><%= post.title %></h1>
  <h2><%= post.subtitle %></h2>
  <div class=”content”>
    <%= post.content %>


  %h1= post.title
  %h2= post.subtitle
    = post.content

Now we use do the same for our Javascript applications. After searching a bit I noticed that there are a few implementations of this already. The reason why I like this library is that it’s based on streams and because of this it has great support for build tooling Gulp, which is also stream based. There also is a nice example of how to use it in frameworks like Express

For more details and documentation check the README which thoroughly explains how it works and how to use it.

Don’t forget the submit this weeks challenge before Friday on when I will post the results.
