Write a script to replace the ruby commands in each haml file with a
unique identifier while storing the ruby commands and identifiers in a
hash. Then generate html from the modified haml. Then replace the
unique identifiers with the ruby commands in the hash suitably wrapped
in erb syntax.

orignal haml:

#example
.name= foo.name

becomes:

#example
.name ERB00001

and hash would look like:

‘ERB00001’ => ‘foo.name’

changed haml should generate:

ERB00001

Substituting from the hash with erb syntax should then yield:

<%= foo.name %>

BTW, just curious why are you going from haml to erb?

Have fun,
