Preprocessor for HTML (Haml, Jade) ?

  • # June 24, 2012 at 5:59 am

    hi,

    SHORT:
    to write HTML faster, with less code and typing, is it better to use:
    * Haml
    * jade
    * or stick to Zen Coding when I type really fast anyway ?

    LONG:
    writting .CSS in Sass is super cool, super easy but I have problem to find something similar for HTML.

    I tried Haml but it kinda sucked when writing some content

    I guess Haml can be good for Ruby guys when writing stuff and converting ERB in something more readable but does not feel the best for web developers (mere = html, css, …)

    I do write in Zen Coding on daily basis so I really am half way through to use some HTML preprocessor
    since I am used to do this: div#page>div.logo+ul#navigation>li*5>a

    so any experience with Jade, anyone ? … (or any other HTML preprocessor) ?

    I’ve been thinking about using one of the above – found a comparison:

    which suggests that they’re VERY similar!
