Jade to HTML converter

I have started writing an application using nodejs and jade, but after a while my team decided to switch to Django. I would still like to use the web pages written using jade, without having to re-write them by hand.

Does anyone know of a tool that transforms jade code into html?
As far as I've seen, most of the tools involving jade concentrate on the opposite transformation.

Answer

Jade is supposed to come with a command line utility that does exactly that.

See here https://github.com/visionmedia/jade#jade1

Or see just above it for a make file that runs it.

Edit - it seems Jade was renamed to Pug - see https://github.com/pugjs/pug/issues/2184

but the answer remains - Pug comes with a command line tool - install it with npm install pug-cli -g

Then you can run pug my_template.pug which will produce my_template.html
