connect-jade-static

connect-jade-static Build Status

Connect (ExpressJS) middleware for serving jade files as static html

Installation

npm install connect-jade-static

Usage

Assume the following structure of your project:

/views
  /partials
    /file.jade

Let's make jade files from /views/partials web accessable:

Express prior to 4.0

var jadeStatic = require('connect-jade-static');

app = express();
app.configure(function() {
  app.use(jadeStatic({
    baseDir: path.join(__dirname, '/views/partials'),
    baseUrl: '/partials',
    maxAge: 86400,
    jade: { pretty: true }
  }));
});

Express 4.0

var jadeStatic = require('connect-jade-static');

app = express();
app.use(jadeStatic({
  baseDir: path.join(__dirname, '/views/partials'),
  baseUrl: '/partials',
  maxAge: 86400,
  jade: { pretty: true }
}));

Now, if you start your web server and request /partials/file.html in browser you should be able see the compiled jade template.
