Haml For Grails

Writing a Grails app? Find out why so many Rubyists swear by Haml for writing views.

Interested parties have created JHaml, a Java implementation of Haml, and a corresponding Grails plugin. (Patches welcome!)

To try it out, just grab the plugin:
grails install-plugin haml
Then add this bean definition to your grails-app/conf/spring/resources.groovy.

Now, you have the option of writing views (with the .haml extension) that will be automatically rendered to GSPs.

Learn more in the Haml tutorial.

Cool stuff - I created a plugin page that references the download at Github - see

You can edit it to update the description or FAQ section or whatever, just create an account.

It has some errors. It doesn't work for empty lines and the error that it throw is confusing
