Control Your Templates! by Sean McCullough
The view engine built into Express.js 2.x followed a similar pattern as Rails and Sinatra with Layouts, templates, and partials. But why do we need those fine-grained distinctions? After all, they're all templates.
Express 3.0 moves away from this distinction and allows the template library to set it's own template hierarchy, but you can roll your own view system in Express.js 2.x now which will free you up to control how your templates are loaded, how to structure data passed to your templates, and opens up some cool possibilities for easily sharing templates between the client and the server.
We will also discuss the view model/decorator pattern for keeping logic out of your templates, how CoffeeScript executable class bodies can be used as a very flexible include pattern, and how a simple template structure can improve your app's overall page load performance for high-latency service calls.
