Install with npm:
$ npm install --save verb-defaults

What does this do?

Default engine
Adds a default template engine for rendering templates. This engine is registered with the name *.
In a vinyl stream, to force rendering to use this engine, do:
  .pipe(app.renderFile('*')) //<= engine name

Common middleware
Registers the common-middleware plugin, which runs preRender, posRender and preWrite middleware that handle escaping and unescaping of templates/delimiters that should not be evaluated at render time (e.g. when writing documentation it's common to have examples of templates that should not be rendered).


This plugin can be used in a verbfile.js or a globally installed verb generator.
var defaults = require('verb-defaults');

// register the plugin
