How can I precompile jade.php templates?

Posted by: admin November 30, 2017 Leave a comment


I’ve fallen in love with Jade, and can’t bear to se any more, but now I have a WordPress theme to design..

So.. I use Codekit, and it handles jade just fine – can I somehow get it to use jade.php instead of the node module? (I couldn’t find any packages which mentioned php when i searched npm find jade | grep php)

Could this be accomplished with a grunt watch task?

I’d prefer not to install jade.php in the theme and have it run there.

Also, I’m aware that I can escape the php..


    | <?php if ( is_active_sidebar( 'sidebar1' ) ) : ?>
    |   <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'sidebar1' ); ?>
    | <?php else : ?>

    // This content shows up if there are no widgets defined in the backend.

        p <?php _e( 'Please activate some Widgets.', 'bonestheme' );  ?>

    | <?php endif; ?>

But I’d love to use jade conditionals.. is that greedy?


https://github.com/ajschlosser/wordpress-jade-template is great for regular wordpress. I’m more of a bootstrap person so I prefer the Bootstrap verison at https://github.com/ajschlosser/wordpress-jade-bootstrap-template which also relies on Sass for some reason (even though Bootstrap is Less oriented) so I forked it and made it more Less biased. https://github.com/Xedecimal/wordpress-jade-bootstrap-template in case you don’t want to do it yourself, pretty easy though.


I just fond on Github a projet named grunt-jade, and they talk about the watch mode :

I think that would help you.
