Implementation for loading hogan.js with layouts and partials for Express 3.x

Hogan.js templating engine, for express.js.

  • Layouts
  • Resolves and loads static and dynamic partials (see example)
  • Timed caching layer

Currently supporting the latest version of Hogan.js on npm (2.0). When Hogan.js 3.0 is published I'll revisit layouts, as template inheritance makes the current implementation redundant.

Example

Server.js
var express = require('express'),
    HoganPartials = require('hogan-partials');

var app = express();

app.engine('html', new HoganPartials());
app.set('views', __dirname+'/app/templates/');
app.set('view engine', 'html');
app.set('view layout', 'layout')

app.locals.partials = {head: 'includes.html'} //App wide partial
app.locals.name = 'Emil' //App wide locals

app.enable('view cache'); //enabled by default
app.set('view cache lifetime', 1000 * 3600 * 6); //6 hours, default: 1 hour

app.get('/', function(req, res){
    res.render('index.html', {
        tags: ['Javascript', 'Node.js'],
        partials: {
            profile: 'profile.html'
        }
    });
});

app.listen(3000);
/app/templates/layout.html
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    {{> head }}
</head>
<body>
    {{> profile }} {{! dynamic partial specified in partials: {} }}
    {{#tags}}
        {{> tag.html }}
    {{/tags}}
    {{> yield }} {{! This is where the body will be injected, index.html}}
</body>
</html>
/app/templates/includes.html
<script>alert('Welcome!')</script>
/app/templates/profile.html
<h1>{{ name }}</h1>
/app/templates/tag.html
<h3>{{.}}</h3>
/app/templates/index.html
<h1>Page Body</h1>
