This gem provides a Jekyll converter for Haml files.


If using Bundler, add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-haml'

In a file within your Jekyll project's _plugins directory:

# _plugins/bundler.rb
require "rubygems"
require "bundler/setup"


You'll be able to use all of Haml's tricks to write some really clean markup. You can use liquid filters easily by just rendering the liquid tags as shown below. The gem adds the liquid filter haml so you can render _includes that are written in Haml as well. Have fun!

For clean content blocks, I find it helps to use Haml's :markdown filter if I can get away with it.

I originally searched around the internet for a quick way to integrate HAML into my jekyll workflow and found a few around the internet to convert haml in different cases (layouts, partials, and posts). This gem is really just a collection of those techniques so they're easy to find and you can get back to creating your site using the slickest markup. It's made to drop in to your Gemfile just as easily as jekyll-sass.

If you're using this stuff, you may also be interested in Octopress. I believe it includes support for Haml/Sass out of the gate.
