Using HTML in Express instead of Jade


Question

How to I get rid of Jade while using Express with Node.JS? I want to just use plain html. In other articles I have seen that people recommended app.register() which is now deprecated in the latest version.

You can do it this way:

  1. Install ejs:

    npm install ejs
    
  2. Set your template engine in app.js as ejs

    // app.js
    app.engine('html', require('ejs').renderFile);
    app.set('view engine', 'html');
    
  3. Now in your route file you can assign template variables

    // ./routes/index.js
    exports.index = function(req, res){
    res.render('index', { title: 'ejs' });};
    
  4. Then you can create your html view in /views directory.
