Print raw html strings on EJS

I'm using express.js with EJS templates and i'm trying to do something like this:

<%= "<a href='#'>Test</a>" %>


but it prints this:

&lt;a href='#'&gt;Test&lt;/a&gt;


how can i print "html safe" strings?

Answer

You should use html code everywhere, and use the EJS tags only where you need dynamic data. Example:

<a href='<%= user.id %>'><%= user.name %</a>

To specifically answer your question you can use <%- "<tags_here>" %> to output unescaped HTML data.
