  • Recommend to use with plugin Jade.

  • Also, I recommend the plugin SublimeOnSaveBuild, just save your Jade files and transform them into HTML!

  • If you want to change the default folder of your generated HTML files into another one, you can edit the build.

    Example: Save your HTML files into a parent html folder: "cmd": ["jade", "$file", "--out", "../html", "--pretty"],
