Haml

We’ve been learning how to use Haml. My understanding of it is that it is basically a shorthand for HTML. I’ve done a bit of work in it now and I have to say that I don’t like it. The shorthand used in Haml is nowhere near as fast as the shorthand available in Emmet/Zen Coding. Haml is supposed to be easier to read. I find that to be true in some circumstances, but not at all in others.

To me, it feels like Haml was a syntax that was created for the sole purpose of creating a syntax. Am I missing something major here?
