Take your RAILS app to the next level by cleaning up your views with HAML, simplifying your CSS with SASS, and enforcing good POSH/Design habits with tenplate.
Elevate your markup with HAML. Take a look at this clean, refreshing alternative to ERB's.
Simplify your markup - no more pesky closing tags or poorly nested markup. Make using "end" a vague memory. And gaze in wonder as you view the perfect whitespace and indentation in your apps source.
Boost your presentation with SASS. Like CSS on steroids SASS provides you with CSS variables, math and "mixins" allowing you to create shortcuts for commonly used rules.
Write easy to read SASS on the server side yet render compressed, optimized CSS to the client!
Bring it all together with tenplate. Add a baseline typographical grid to your site.
Create an EM based layout with a dynamic grid system.
Add custom form helpers and basic site variables.
