After being tired of refactoring .erb files to .haml I headed for a way to modify the rails generator that will create .haml view files rather than .erb view files.
After a while, I found what exactly I needed. ‘haml-rails’ is the name of the solution. This is how you do it.
Add the following line to your Gemfile:
Then run the bundler (bundle install).
Now append the following lines in your application.rb file (at the end of Application class):
config.generators do |g| g.template_engine :haml end
That’s it. Your new scaffolds will generate .haml files (and obviously haml syntaxes) for you.
This is much easier than Haml-scaffold.
