Haml blesses those who use it with freedom from the verbosity of HTML and from the banality of un-programmable CSS. You can get straight to work thinking about your code instead of trudging through the boilerplate of angle brackets and closing tags.
With Sass your CSS becomes smart. Much, much smarter.
Since its initial release in 2007, the Haml templating library has been adopted by increasing numbers of high profile consultancies (Unspace, Hashrocket) and Ruby frameworks (Rails, Merb, Sinatra). It’s even been ported to PHP and other languages.
This hour-long tutorial will get you up and running with both Haml and Sass. You’ll learn:
Whether you’re planning to use Haml or just want to learn about a new perspective on generating HTML, XML, and CSS, this is the tutorial for you. It’s also a great way to show a co-worker or friend how easy it is to use Haml!
Suitable for any and all web developers! Simple snippets of HTML, CSS, and Ruby are used.
