compile vash templates for use with browserify

vashify

Use Vash with Browserify and get your templates compiled during the transform

npm install vashify

######your-file.js

var template = require('./your-template.vash');
var $ = require('jquery');
 
$('body').append(template({ name: 'Mike', traits: ['bro', 'tall']}));

######your-template.vash

<h1>@model.name</h1>
<ul>
  @model.traits.forEach(function(t){ 
    <li>You are @t</t>
  })
</div>

######do the transform

browserify -t vashify your-file.js > bundle.js

######require vash-runtime to register helpers

var vash = require('vash-runtime');
var tmpl = require('./your-template.vash');
 
vash.helpers.fullName = function(model){
  return model.first + ' ' + model.last;
};
 
tmpl({first:'Barbra', last: 'Streisand';});

######calling the helpers

@html.fullName(model)... @html.fullName(model).

Module references like require('*.vash') files will be intercepted during the browserify transform. Once intercepted, the template is compiled and a new module that exports the complied template function is generated. Next, the generated module is written to disk and the original require('my-template.vash') is replaced with a require to the generated module containing the compiled template.

This means templates that are required multiple times will only appear in the bundle once and the vash-runtime is only included once... which is good for business.
