A fast indentation-preserving template engine.

## Example

import fett

fett.Template('''{{ for customer in customers }}
{{ if i even }}
Even: {{ customer.name }}
{{ else }}
Odd: {{ customer.name }}
{{ end }}
{{ else }}
No customers :(
{{ end }}''').render({'customers': [
{'name': 'Bob'},
{'name': 'Elvis'},
{'name': 'Judy'}
]})

## Syntax

Tag Format

Description

{{ <expression> }}

Substitutions

{{ foo <expression> }}

Substitutions

{{ format <name> }}

Metaformatting

{{ if <expression> }}

Conditionals

{{ for <name> in <expression> }}

Loops

{{ else }}

{{ end }}

Block termination

{{ # <comment> }}

Spaces between tag opening/closing delimiters are optional.

### Expressions

An expression is given for Substitutions, Conditionals, and Loops.

Expressions take the following form:

<name>[.<subfield>…] [<filter> [<filter2>…]]

Instead of specifying a field path, you can start an expression using a string literal:

<literal> [<filter> [<filter2>…]]

You can use filters to modify a single value in simple ways. For example, the loop iteration counter i counts from 0, but users often wish to count from 1. You can obtain a count-from-1 value with the expression i inc.

The full list of filters:

Filter Name

Effect

car

Returns the first element of a list.

cdr

Returns all but the first element of a list.

dec

Decrements a value representable as an integer by one.

even

Returns true iff its input is representable as an even integer.

escape

Encodes &, <, >, , and characters with HTML entities.

inc

Increments a value representable as an integer by one.

len

Returns the length of a list.

not

Returns the inverse of a boolean.

odd

Returns true iff its input is representable as an odd integer.

negative

Returns true iff its input is representable as an integer < 0.

positive

Returns true iff its input is representable as an integer > 0.

split

Splits a value into a list by whitespace.

strip

Returns the input string with surrounding whitespace removed.

striptags

Remove HTML tags from a value.

timesNegOne

Returns int(input) * -1

zero

Returns true iff the input is zero

Filter Name

Effect

upperCase

Returns a Unicode-aware uppercase version of the input.

lowerCase

Returns a Unicode-aware lowercase version of the input.

Filter Name

Effect

Increments a value representable as an integer by n.

minus(n)

Decrements a value representable as an integer by n.

equal(value)

Returns true iff a value equals the given value.

lessThan(n)

Returns true iff n < the given value.

lessThanOrEqual(n)

Returns true iff n <= the given value.

greaterThan(n)

Returns true iff n > the given value.

greaterThanOrEqual(n)

Returns true iff n >= the given value.
