HAH – super cool template / DSL engine for PHP

HAH ( HAH Ain’t HAML ) is a HAML-like template language specifically for PHP with some added features and a focus on development speed. This is my first official beta release of this engine. You can check out examples, documentation and download it at

Its goal is to make HTML/XML authoring in a PHP Template environment as simple and painless as possible.

    Hi Bryan! just wanted to tell you that this is what I’ve been looking for a long time, I tried the port of jade to php but it’s not really finished, and your project is exactly what I wanted! any chance you put your code on github or something similar to make issues reporting easier?

    Thanks Bruno! I’ve been wanting to get some of my stuff up on google projects for that exact reason. Thanks for the input!

    Hey Bryan, is there a chance you can implement something for using variables for inclusions… like:

    instead of




    and change the file to load from the variable.

    I gave it a shot myself but couldn’t manage to get it to work…

    Hi Bruno, I actually had a future feature using that very syntax to include tabular data from a variable… however if understand what you’re asking I think your idea better.

    You’re saying $content would have a path to a template to include and would be evaluated as such?

    I think I can add that.
