Express3+ layout handling
expressjs simple layout addon for expressjs 3+
require'express_layout';/* ...somewhere in your controller code... */resrenderInLayout'users' accounts: accounts; // renders the 'users' view within the default layout ('layout')
If you wish you can even replace the res.render by the layout render:
var express_layout = require'express_layout';/* declare a middleware */appuseresrender = express_layoutrenderbindres;next;;/* ...somewhere in your controller code... */resrender'users' accounts: accounts; // renders the 'users' view within the default layout ('layout')
- The default layout is 'layout'
Layouts must reside in a path that is resolved by express like any other view.
You can set the global layout with setLayout():
Or, you can use a specific layout by setting the layout option:
resrenderInLayout'users'layout: 'UsersLayout'accounts: accounts;
Or, you can use a specific layout by setting the res.layout:
reslayout = 'UsersLayout';resrenderInLayout'users'accounts: accounts;
Options are passed to the layout and the template as well.
The layout is assumed to have a "yield" local, where the view's content will be nested
Layout example in ejs format:
<%- yield %>
