UPDATE (5/16/2011) – As Declan points out, this is no longer the case. you can use the master of devise from github to get this functionality back.
I have been moving one of my sites to a rails application, and I am using the HAML view engine to make all my templates. I am also using Devise as my authentication gem. I am going to be doing some customizations of the views, however, by default, devise generates the views in ERB.
This is how to get the devise generator to use a HAML template instead of ERB.
Add the following to your GEMFILE:
gem 'haml' group :development do gem 'hpricot' gem 'ruby_parser' end
Then execute the following statements in a terminal/command window:
bundle install rails generate devise:views -e haml
This will create the views for devise in HAML.

I recently purchased a site template from ThemeForest and I wanted to use it in a brand spankin’ new Rails 3 website. I immediately created the application and installed haml. I had heard so much about haml that I wanted to use it with this new site. The DOCTYPE that the template used was 1.0 Transitional:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
However, by default, Rails 3 and haml render the default DOCTYPE as HTML5, like this:
!!! # => renders as <!DOCTYPE html>
Unfortunately, even if you try to add “!!! Transitional” as documented, it will not render the correct DOCTYPE. So in order for me to get the correct doctype, I had to add a haml.rb configuration file under /config/initializers/ with the following code at the top of the file:
Haml::Template.options[:format] = :xhtml
