Templates as a service

Project description

Templates as a service.

diecutter exposes an API where you manage templates as resources. The most common operation is to POST data to templates in order to retrieve generated files.

Files and directories are supported. Directories are rendered as archives.


Diecutter is under active development: some (killer) features have not been implemented yet, or they are not mature. Check milestones and vision for details.

That said, features documented below actually work, so give it a try!


GET raw content of a template:

$ curl -X GET
{{ greetings|default('Hello') }} {{ name }}!

POST data to the template and retrieve generated content:

$ curl -X POST -d name=world
Hello world!
