UTML: Underscore Template Markup Language

UTML is a wrapper around the underscore.js template method to make it comply with the express web framework.

Installing

Use npm:

npm install utml

Using it in your project

Setting up your express app

// no need to require utml, express will do that for us
var app = require('express').createServer();

// set utml as the view engine
app.set('view engine', 'utml');


app.get('/', function(req, res){
	res.render('index', {
		locals : { 
			pageTitle : "Hello Node.js + Express + UTML!!",
			msg : "Insert snarky message here."
		}
	});
});

// start listening on the specified port
app.listen(8000);

Create 'views/index.utml'

<p><%= msg %></p>

Create 'views/layout.utml'
