Wrapper around Cheetah + JSON to provide simple buildout templating

Project Description

This recipe provides buildout with a generic way to fill in a template from buildout parameters. Lists and dictionaries are supported using JSON syntax.

Mandatory Parameters

Path to a template (in Cheetah format)
Where to write the template


In your template:

#for $bar in $foo
#end for

And in your buildout.cfg:

parts = template

recipe = isotoma.recipe.template
input = template.cfg
output = myfile.cfg
hello_world = Hello World
foo = ['foo', 'bar', 'baz']


This software is available from our recipe repository on github.
