Haml

Haml (HTML Abstraction Markup Language) is a layer on top of HTML or XML that's designed to express the structure of documents in a non-repetitive, elegant, and easy way by using indentation rather than closing tags and allowing Ruby to be embedded with ease. It was originally envisioned as a plugin for Ruby on Rails, but it can function as a stand-alone templating engine.

Sass

Sass makes CSS fun again. Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.
