    HAML: new templating engine

    Hello,

    I just came across HAML. It's a new template engine for Ruby on Rails. To be more precise itīs a HTML Abstraction Markup Language. I havenīt tried it already because Iīm still learning Ruby/Rails but maybe some of you find it usefull or interesting.

    Someone has written an article about it and here you can find the projectīs home.

    I fail to see what benefits HAML has over something like XML builder.

    And I don't know about most designers/developers here, but I think HTML with a few inline Ruby expressions is far easier for others to pick up on what's happening than HAML from the code samples I've seen in the article and on the project homepage.

    It doesn't look very pretty/flexible. Markaby looks much better:

    And btw: his html is far too crowded.
