Connect views

This is a connect middleware. It serves templates like a static files, supports request paths with omited extensions (some/doc vs some/doc.md), has built in support for jade, markdown, less and stylus.

Examples

Serve all templates from ./public

var connect = require('connect')
var Views = require('connect-views')
var app = connect()

app.use(Views({
    root: 'public'
}))

Pass view engine specific options

app.use(Views({
    root: 'public',
    stylus: {
        paths: ['styles']
    },
    markdown: {
        dialect: 'maruku'
    }
}))

Integrate new view engine

Views.engines.haml = function () {
    var haml = require('hamljs')

    return {
        contentType: 'text/html',

        render: function (str, cb) {
            try {
                var out = haml.render(str, this)
            }
            catch (e) {
                return cb(e)
            }
            cb(null, out)
        }
    }
}

Views.engines.extensions['.haml'] = Views.engines.haml

Serve certain file type in a specific way

app.use(Views({
    '.hamlxml': (function () {
        var engine = Views.engines.haml()
        engine.contentType = 'application/xml'
        engine.xml = true
        return engine
    })()
}))
