PHAMLP for WordPress


PHAMLP for WordPress enables theme creation using the HAML template system. HAML replaces the tag soup of most HTML/PHP templates with a cleaner, hierarchical markup language.

Any plain HTML/PHP theme will work while PHAMLP for WordPress is enabled. But the individual templates that make up a WordPress theme, from index.php to author.php, can be replaced with a corresponding .haml.php file and PHAMLP for WordPress will process them.

HAML Example

!!! 5
    %title Welcome to my web site
      %h1 Welcome!
      #greeting Hello world!
      #copyright-notice (c) forever by me!

A “TwentyHAMLTen” example theme will be included in future versions.


  1. PHAMLP for WordPress is a fork of wp-haml, and is therefore available under the ISC license.
  2. PHAMLP is redistributed under the terms of the New BSD License.
  3. The TwentyHAMLTen theme is a derivative of the TwentyTen theme that ships with WordPress and inherits the original theme’s GPL license.
