What is a HAML file?

Source code file written in Haml, (HTML abstraction markup language); stores a template written in Haml language that is used to generate the HTML of a web document; can be used to replace Ruby template scripts (.ERB files) with its abbreviated syntax.

More Information

One prominent feature of Haml is that it replaces conventional tags (<>) with the percent sign (%) in order to save time and appear “cleaner.”

An example of simple Haml language and the HTML language generated through the template engine:

Haml:
%html
  %body
    %h1 My First Heading

HTML:
<html>
<body>
<h1>My First Heading</h1>
</body>
</html>

NOTE: You can switch over from ERB to Haml by replacing the "erb" file extension on ERB files with "haml.”
