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



Just put your .jade 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/jade/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 Jade, polvo will handle them in a particular conventioned way.

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

The import tag follows the Jade default syntax.

To include a partial in your jade, just:

  1. Name your patial accordingly so it starts with _
  2. Calls it from any of your jade files by using the include or extends directive
 include ./_partial-name-here
 extends ./_partial-name-here

Partials are referenced relatively.
