eco-plus

Eco templates extension.

Eco-plus is Eco extension for Express

which adds include, parent and block tags. These special tags allow to split templates into several files in the same way Django or Liquid does it.

Example

layout.html

<html>
    <head>
        <% block "title" %>**Parent Title**<% endblock %>
    </head>
    <body>
        <% block "main" %>Parent Content<% endblock %>
    </body>
</html>

index.html

<% parent "layout" %>
<% block "title" %>Page Title<% endblock %>
<% block "main" %>
  <% include "header" %>
  Page Content
  <% include "footer" %>
<% endblock %>

Installation

Add "eco-plus": ">=0.1.2" to package.json dependencies and run npm install:

{
  ...
  "dependencies": {
    ...
    "eco-plus": ">=0.1.2"
  },
  ...
}

Express Integration

To integrate Eco-plus into express default render method should be overrided. Add these somewhere in express configuration section:

#
# Setting up and configuring eco-plus to render templates
# We also override default express/http render method
#
ecoplus = require 'eco-plus'
 
templates_path  = "<path to application templates>"
app.templates   = ecoplus.templates(templates_path)
res             = require('http').ServerResponse.prototype
 
res.render = (name, context={}) ->
    html = ecoplus.render(name, context, app.templates)
    @send(html)
