Syntax: Text

Piped text

The simplest way of adding plain text to templates is to prefix the line with a | character.

| Plain text can include <strong>html</strong>
  | It must always be on its own line

Inline in a Tag

Since it’s a common use case, you can put text in a tag just by adding it inline after a space.

p Plain text can include <strong>html</strong>

Block text

Often you might want large blocks of text within a tag. A good example is with inline scripts or styles. To do this, just add a . after the tag (with no preceding space):

  if (usingExpug)
    console.log('you are awesome')
    console.log('use expug')
