    Polka EJS

    Adds ejs template engine support to polka

    Install

    npm install polka-ejs

    Usage

    const polka = require("polka");
    const ejs = require("polka-ejs");
     
    const app = polka();
     
    app.use(ejs());
     
    app.get("/", (req, res) => {
      res.render("index.ejs", { number: 5 });
    });
     
    app.listen(3000);

    Create a views/index.js with the following

    <html>
      <body>
        <h1>The Number is <%= number %></h1>
      </body>
    </html>

    Now visiting http://localhost:3000 will display the number 5 on the page!

    Options

    All options with their default values.

    app.use(ejs({
      path: path.join(process.cwd(), "views"),
      cache: process.env.NODE_ENV === "production",
      contentType: "text/html",
      status: 200,
      ext: "ejs",
      options: {}
    }));

    Options can be overriden per call basis aswell

    res.render("index", {
      path: path.join(__dirname, "secretViewsJustForThisRoute"),
      status: 500,
      contentType: "text/html",
      cache: false,
      ext: "html",
      options: {}
    });

    Few things to note

    • ext is used if the extension is not provided in the render call, i.e lets you make views/index.html and if ext is set to html just res.render("index") is enough.
    • Cache uses the simple in memory cache that comes with ejs to override this require() ejs and change the value of ejs.cache like examples in their readme
    • Could possibly work with other frameworks if they have a similar style of middleware but i haven't seen any.
