ZC buildout recipe to build template based file

Project Description

What is iw.recipe.template ?

iw.recipe.template is a zc.buildout recipe to build template based file/scripts

It also provide some recipe to build Zope2, Zope3 and Squid vhosts config file for apache.

How to use iw.recipe.template ?

We need a buildout config file:

>>> server = start_server(test_dir)

>>> write(sample_buildout, 'buildout.cfg',
... """
... [buildout]
... parts = template.txt
...
... [template.txt]
... recipe = iw.recipe.template
... source = %s/template.txt_impl
... destination = %s/
... """ % (sample_buildout, sample_buildout))

And a template:

>>> template = join(sample_buildout, 'template.txt_impl')
>>> open(template, 'w').write('''My template is named "$name"''')

Then, the recipe should work:

>>> print system(buildout)
Installing template.txt.
template.txt: Generated file 'template.txt'.

Here is the result:

>>> print open(join(sample_buildout, 'template.txt')).read()
My template is named "template.txt"

Now we can generate an executable:

>>> write(sample_buildout, 'buildout.cfg',
... """
... [buildout]
... parts = script
...
... [script]
... recipe = iw.recipe.template:script
... source = %s/template.py_impl
... destination = %s/
... """ % (sample_buildout, sample_buildout))

We need a small template with a python script:

>>> template = join(sample_buildout, 'template.py_impl')
>>> open(template, 'w').write('''
... import sys
... print 'this is the script named "$name"'
... ''')

Run buildout again:

>>> print system(buildout)
Uninstalling template.txt.
Installing script.
script: Generated script 'script'.

Here is the result:

>>> print open(join(sample_buildout, 'script')).read()
#!/.../bin/python
<BLANKLINE>
import sys
print 'this is the script named "script"'
<BLANKLINE>

>>> print system(join(sample_buildout, 'script'))
this is the script named "script"
