Join Daniel Khan for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a custom error page, part of Building a Website with Node.js and Express.js.
- [Instructor] If we end up on an unknown page, so far,…we only get some basic error page provided by Express.…We should change that now and add a more professional page…that doesn't look as if the server has just crashed.…So I looked around a little bit…and I found a rather simple template that we can use.…You see it here.…It comes with just a little bit of HTML…and it relies mostly on…external CSS libraries by Bootstrap.…So how can we get this into Pug…for that?…We can simply use…a convertor that we can find online.…
There are plenty of them.…So what I will do now is I will simply, first, copy the HTML…from the template…and then I'll look for HTML…to Pug…convertor…and I will just try the first one here.…I replace the example content with our snippet…and here, we have already proper Pug syntax.…
So I copy that and in my project,…I will now create in Views, a new file, error.pug.…That saved it.…The template also comes with some CSS.…You see there is some…minor CSS included.…So I copy that as well, head over to my project,…
