Hi Jim, thank you for your comment! I didn’t mention any html processors since they are all very easy to get started and learning Jade shouldn’t take you more than a day :)
Also, please don’t be a fan of technologies because “hardcore devs” use them. Remember, knowing tools and frameworks is important, but knowing when to use, or not use them, is even more important. Using a template engine is great for projects heavy in HTML templates, but be wary since this also makes templates a lot harder to truly treat as web components (because of it’s required transpiling), not to mention communication with the web design may be harder since designers are usually only familiarized with standard HTML.
