Heads up to anyone watching this video.

After spending ~3 hours trying to figure out why I kept getting indent errors in my layout.jade file, I found out that pipes don't allow trailing whitespace with no content after them, but if you're using Sublime Text, it automatically trims trailing whitespace on all lines by default.

If you run into this problem, just set "trim_trailing_white_space_on_save" in Sublime user settings to false.

Thanks for this Daniel. I was starting to go nuts trying to figure why the console kept telling me I had incorrect indenting!!

After changing that setting in Sublime, it works!
