Chaplin.js on Node.js. Use it for SEO or just because you can ;)
It is currently being tested in a Chaplin app. The following work:
Need to implement:
An express app is created on Node and then the Tramp is required. It's designed to be a drop in plugin, but at the moment there are a few changes that have to be made to the Chaplin app:
Internally, Chaplin uses
loader instead of the word
require for loading modules. In order to get the modules to load in the browser & Node and not change the app's build process, it is necessary to change all instances of
require in the app to
loader. The behavior is the same; it is just a syntax change.
application.coffee a new property needs to be created:
templateHelpers. This is an array with the path to each template helper file. Each template helper file now needs to have:
module.exports = (Handlebars) ->
as the Handlebars object that express uses is tied to
hbs.handlebars and as such needs to be passed into each template when they are required.
Views have a new class called "DualView" which simply marks this view as being eligable for rendered on Node. If a view is not a DualView, the Tramp will skip it. The same goes for subviews.
