You can implement it as in the example just below in your app.js file so that you can use it in all views. Note that it should be before the line 'app.use(app.router)'.

app.configure

  app.use(function(req, res, next) {
    res.locals.parameterize = parameterize
    next();
  });
  
  app.use(app.router);

index.jade

#{parameterize('parameterized url with special characters, öçıŞÇ')}
// output:
// parameterized-url-with-special-characters-ocisc
