What is HAML?
Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content.
HAML is a tool in the Languages category of a tech stack.
HAML is an open source tool with 3.7K GitHub stars and 570 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to HAML's open source repository on GitHub
