Rapid prototyping of Jade templates

npm install quickyjade -g


Basic usage

QuickyJade is super easy to work with, just run $ quickyjade. Then, in your browser navigate to http://localhost:3000/yourjadefile.jade. QuickyJade is also a static file server so any css , javascript or image files will be serverd as well.

Using local JSON

QuickyJade will also pull in local JSON files to be interpreted by your jade file. To do so, simply add a query string to your URL with the json parameter being the location of the JSON file relative to the working directory. eg: http://localhost:3000/yourjadefile.jade?json=jsonfile.json.

Using local javascript files

QuickyJade will also work with javascript files formatted in the correct manner. To do so, place your data on the exports object of the file (see below). To do this, use a query string of js=yourjsfile.js with your URL. eg: http://localhost:3000/yourjadefile.jade?js=jsfile.js.
