To use flexable as template engine for wsgi application, you can use
flexable.plugin:FlexablePlugin.
And that is python.template_engine entry point.

Example on TurboGears

controllers.py::

@expose(template="flexable:flexable_example.templates.example")
def example(self):
return dict(message="This is flexable message.",
contents=""" This is main contents from controller.
flexable is merge values to given html template with class attribute.
""")

flexable_example/templates/example.html::

&lt;?xml version="1.0"?>
&lt;html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
&lt;body>
&lt;h1>Flexable Template&lt;/h1>
&lt;span class="message">&lt;/span>
&lt;p class="contents">&lt;/p>
&lt;span class="widget"/>
&lt;/body>
&lt;/html>

you get:

&lt;html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
&lt;body>
&lt;h1>Flexable Template&lt;/h1>
&lt;span class="message">This is flexable message.&lt;/span>
&lt;p class="contents"> This is main contents from controller.
flexable is merge values to given html template with class attribute.
&lt;/p>
&lt;/body>
&lt;/html>
