Basic Example

Template code

<h1>{{ pagename|title }}</h1>
<ul>
{% for author in authors %}
    <li{% if forloop.index <= 0 %} class="first"{% endif %}>{{ author }}</li>
{% empty %}
    <li>There are no authors.</li>
{% endfor %}
</ul>

node.js code

var template  = require('swig');
var tmpl = template.compileFile('/path/to/template.html');
tmpl.render({
    pagename: 'awesome people',
    authors: ['Paul', 'Jim', 'Jane']
});

Output

<h1>Awesome People</h1>
<ul>
    <li class="first">Paul</li>
    <li>Jim</li>
    <li>Jane</li>
</ul>

How it works

Swig reads template files and translates them into cached javascript functions. When we later render a template we call the evaluated function, passing a context object as an argument. This makes the rendering very fast.
