Serve static Jade templates from an Express server.


Import it via node's require function.

jadeStatic = require 'jade-static'

Then, you would simply add it as a used middleware when you configure your Express server.

server = express.createServer()

# You can watch just about any folder to serve the static Jade files.
server.use jadeStatic "#{__dirname}/public/"


It's an NPM package. You can just do the following.

$ npm install jade-static

Or, you can install it globally as well.

# Might require you to be root.
$ npm install -g jade-static


HTML is great and all, but I got pretty tired of its angle brackets. Jade seemed to give me a break from it all. Therefore, I wrote a middleware for node servers running on Express.
