html2jade converts HTML into Jade format.


html2jade currently supports OS X and Linux platforms.

Windows is currently not supported because html2jade uses jsdom which in turn depends on native code module Contextify.

Web version

There is a web version of html2jade, kindly provided by @aaronpowell.


npm install html2jade

Command-line Usage

Outputs to stdout if input is URL


html2jade > twitter.jade

Outputs to file if input is file

html2jade mywebpage.html # outputs mywebpage.jade
html2jade public/*.html  # converts all .html files to .jade

Convert HTML from stdin

cat mywebpage.html | html2jade - 

To generate Scalate compatible output:

html2jade --scalate
html2jade --scalate > twitter.jade
html2jade --scalate mywebpage.html
html2jade --scalate public/*.html

Programmatic Usage (>= 0.0.7)

To convert raw HTML into Jade:

var html2jade = require('html2jade');
var html = "<html><body>Hello World</body></html>";
html2jade.convertHtml(html, {}, function (err, jade) {
  // do your thing

To convert DOM document into Jade (client-side):

// assumes html2jade.js file has been loaded
Html2Jade.convertDocument(document, {}, function (err, jade) {
  // do your thing


Mostly usable but sometimes requires fixing up, usually involving conditionals and scripts indentation.

While converting a fairly complicated theme package with ~20 HTML files, I had to hand-edit just twice.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
