You won't need to install it since it comes built in in Polvo.



Just put your .html or .htm files in your input dirs and it will be ready for use.

Templates are compiled to strict CJS modules, to require them just use the well known CJS pattern, more info here.

The same resolution algorithm presented in NodeJS will be used.


template = require './your/html/template'
dom = template()
console.log dom
# append it to your document, i.e: 
# $('body').append dom 


There's a built in support for partials in your html files.

Every file starting with _ won't be compiled alone. Instead, if some other file that doesn't start with _ imports it, it will be compiled within it.

The import tag follows the basic SSI specification.

To include a partial in your html, just:

  1. Name your patial accordingly so it starts with _
  2. Include it in any of your html files by using the syntax
<!--#include file="_partial-name-here" -->

Partials are referenced relatively.
