Prove that you care for web standards. Use simple HTML 4 for output instead of pretending you know what XHTML really is.


Standardista is a set of options for Haml 2.0.

Include the Haml gem in your environment.rb:

config.gem 'haml', :version => '~> 2.0'


  • sets Haml output to HTML 4
  • in production: sets Sass output to 'compact'
  • in production: turns on Haml 'ugly' mode (faster rendering because it doesn't care for indenting)
  • patches ActionView tag helper to stop generating self-closing tags

More to come.
