How can I render inline JavaScript with Jade / Pug?


Question

I'm trying to get JavaScript to render on my page using Jade (http://jade-lang.com/)

My project is in NodeJS with Express, eveything is working correctly until I want to write some inline JavaScript in the head. Even taking the examples from the Jade docs I can't get it to work what am I missing?

Jade template

!!! 5
html(lang="en")
  head
    title "Test"
    script(type='text/javascript')
      if (10 == 10) {
        alert("working")
      }
  body

Resulting rendered HTML in browser

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <title>"Test"</title>
  <script type="text/javascript">
    <if>(10 == 10) {<alert working></alert></if>}
  </script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Somethings definitely a miss here any ideas?

simply use a 'script' tag with a dot after.

script.
  var users = !{JSON.stringify(users).replace(/<\//g, "<\\/")}
