Jadebars is a simple tool for compiling Jade files into precompiled Handlebars templates. Jadebars can be used from the command line or via its public API.

Features

  • Minification
  • Concatenation of multiple files
  • Supports known helper optimizations
  • Robust file watching
  • Cross-platform

Installation

Install globally via npm:

$ npm install -g jadebars

Usage

Usage: jadebars [options] [path ...]

Options:

-h, --help             output usage information
-V, --version          output the version number
-k, --known <helpers>  known helpers
-K, --knownOnly        known helpers only
-m, --minify           minify output files
-o, --output <path>    output path
-s, --silent           suppress console output
-w, --watch            watch files for changes

Examples

Compile a single file:

$ jadebars test.jade

Compile an entire directory tree to an an output directory:

$ jadebars -o output templates

Compile a directory tree into a single file:

$ jadebars -o templates.js templates

Compile with minification:

$ jadebars -m test.jade

Compile and watch for changes:

$ jadebars -w templates

All together now (concatenate, minify, and watch):

$ jadebars -mwo templates.js templates

API

jadebars(inputPaths, [options])

Compiles all .jade files found in inputPaths, which can be a single string or an array of strings.

Options:
  • known - Array of known helpers to pass to the Handlebars compiler.
  • knownOnly - If all helpers are known in advance this may be used to optimize all block helper references. Defaults to false.
  • minify - Compress output files. Defaults to false.
  • output - The path to the output file. If the path has a file extension, all files will be joined at that location. Otherwise, the path is assumed to be a directory.
  • silent - Suppress all console output. Defaults to true.
  • watch - Watch all files and directories for changes and recompile automatically. Defaults to false.
Example:
var jadebars = require('jadebars')

jadebars('templates', {output: 'javascripts/templates.js'})
