TopRope Build Status

A handlebars template compiler for directories using hogan.js, and renderer for express.

Install

npm install toprope

Usage

TopRope is meant to be used in conjunction with express to render your compiled templates to a view in an isolated script tag.

In your node.js express app

express = require "express"
topRope = require "toprope"

myApp = express()

topRope process.cwd() + "/public/templates", (err, scriptTag) ->
  app.listen 3000, (err) -> 
      console.log "Listening on 3000, Ctrl-C to exit"

This will compile all the templates in your /public/templates directory.

In your view (jade templates example)

<script src="http://twitter.github.com/hogan.js/builds/2.0.0/hogan-2.0.0.js"></script>
!= templates()

This will output a <script> tag containing the APPLICATION_TEMPLATES variable with your templates.

Rendering your template

var hoganed = new Hogan.Template(APPLICATION_TEMPLATES["someTemplate.hbs"]),
    html = hoganed.render({ data: "something" });

First we have to 'Hoganize' the template then call render on it.
