No More Whitespace Worries — Use HAML for Emails!

Tired of all the erb whitespace and those <%-end-%> madness ?

Switch to HAML for emails!!

How to?

  • remove any leading whitespace with capture and gsub
  • use == for easy string replacement
  • use == for newlines

Example

==Hello #{@user},
Your order has been completed on #{Time.now}.
You may now access the bought items:
==
- content = capture do
  - for item in @order.items
    - if item.shipping?
      We will send it to you soon.
    - else
      please download it here:
      ==#{item.orderable} -- #{polymorphic_url(item.orderable)}
    ==

=content.gsub(/^(  )*/,'')
==
=mail_signature
