Watch a folder for haml file changes and generate html files


Watch a directory for haml file changes and auto generate html files.

npm install hamlet-js

Then set it to watch a directory:

cd directory-with-haml-files
hamlet -v

Handling Layouts

If the watcher finds a file called layout.haml it will use it as a wrapper for any other files in the directory. Each non-layout template will be injected into the view wherever a = yield is found.

Defining Variables

Hamlet will check for a file called locals.json in the watched directory to load for local variables that can be used in the templates.
