Command-line Options

Programmatic Usage (>= 0.0.7)

To convert raw HTML into Jade:

var html2jade = require('html2jade');
var html = "<html><body>Hello World</body></html>";
html2jade.convertHtml(html, {}, function (err, jade) {
  // do your thing
});

To convert DOM document into Jade (client-side):

// assumes html2jade.js file has been loaded
Html2Jade.convertDocument(document, {}, function (err, jade) {
  // do your thing
});

Converting Mustache/Handlebars Templates

Jade is commonly used to generate HTML with embedded Mustache or Handlebars templates.

Be sure to use version 0.8+ if you use template expressions in element IDs or CSS class names to avoid generating invalid Jade files.

Status

Mostly usable but sometimes requires fixing up, usually involving conditionals and scripts indentation.

While converting a fairly complicated theme package with ~20 HTML files, I had to hand-edit just twice.

Tools using html2jade

Web version

There is a web version of html2jade, kindly provided by @aaronpowell.

Linux tray app

Miniclip is a Linux tray app that quickly converts HTML to Jade, CSS to Stylus and JS to Coffee from clipboard.

Testing

As of version 0.4, there is a simple unit test that converts HTML files in test/data directory and compare them against Jade files in the same directory. Unit test harness requires coffee-script and mocha to be installed globally. Run the tests with command npm test.
