Basic usage with Express below.

var express = require ('express');
var nunjucks = require('nunjucks');
var app = express();
// Apply nunjucks and add custom filter and function (for example).
var env = nunjucks.configure(['views/'], { // set folders with templates
 autoescape: true,
 express: app
env.addFilter('myFilter', function(obj, arg1, arg2) {
 console.log('myFilter', obj, arg1, arg2);
 // Do smth with obj
 return obj;
env.addGlobal('myFunc', function(obj, arg1) {
 console.log('myFunc', obj, arg1);
 // Do smth with obj
 return obj;
app.get('/', function(req, res){
 res.render('index.html', {title: 'Main page'});
app.get('/foo', function(req, res){
 res.locals.smthVar = 'This is Sparta!';
 res.render('foo.html', {title: 'Foo page'});
app.listen(3000, function() {
 console.log('Example app listening on port 3000...');
