EJS (HTML) code wrapper for SocketStream 0.3


npm install ss-ejs


Add this line of code to your app.js file:


Passing variables to your ejs view files

In the app.js file, pass locals to your view template like this:

ss.client.formatters.add(require('ss-ejs'), {locals: {user: 'Paul'}});

Then, in your views/app.ejs file, load the SocketStream headers like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8"/>
    <%- SocketStream %>

And use the local variables in your ejs template like this:

<h3>Quick Chat Demo for <%= locals.user %></h3>


I've noticed that how we pass local variables to our ejs template isn't flexible in terms of having multiple ejs view templates with different local variables. I will look to resolve this issue in the near future.
