Dynamic EJS List

This space illustrates how to use EJS to display information from a database.

What is EJS?

EJS is a simple templating language that lets you generate HTML markup using dynamic data from a Node.js script. For more information, visit http://ejs.co.

Setup

Generally, you will need 2 files to implement EJS:

  • A Node.js file to produce the data for the ejs template (list.js)
  • An EJS file for the HTML template (list.ejs)

response.render() connects the Node.js code to the EJS file. For example:

function list(request, response) {  
  var customers = pjs.query("SELECT customerName FROM customers");
  response.render("list.ejs", { customers });
}

The Node.js file must be setup as an Express route:

This is a simple demo of Fibers! Fibers simplifies code by avoiding messy code known as "callback hell", "promises hell", or "async/await hell". Once Fibers is setup, you never have to think about callbacks or promises (they are handled automatically for you).
