In Detail

Haml is a markup language used to rapidly develop Rails view templates (or HTML pages). It is used by professional developers and praised for its cleanliness, human friendliness and usage agility. It functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ASP, and ERB - the templating language used in most Ruby on Rails applications. Haml is itself a description of HTML and hence it avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template with some code to generate dynamic content.

A practical guide which shows you a number of examples of Haml usage and then lets you dive into more advanced features to help you take full advantage of rapid development of view templates in your Rails applications. This book will show you how you can use Haml to create beautiful, easily maintainable and concise view templates without the hassle of writing in HTML.

Starting by showing you how to install Haml and how to integrate it into your Rails application, this practical guide will then teach you how to create the elements of a view template. This book will introduce you to the important features of Haml, show you how to integrate Haml with your development editor, and how to make it work with the Twitter Bootstrap framework.

This book will also show you how to convert existing view templates. With this book, you will be able to integrate Haml into your current application setup and development workflow.
