Project Description

Welcome to JinjaLive documentation!

JinjaLive is a project created by Marlysys.

JinjaLive can be used to test your Jinja templates. It renders a Jinja template with given variables to a rendered output. As simple as that !


JinjaLive is available on pip:

pip install jinjalive


Command-line usage

Given a context file and a template file, JinjaLive will generate the output file:

jinjalive -cf <context_file> -tf <template_file> -of <output_file>

Web application

Launch the JinjaLive server with:


Open your browser to http://<your_ip_address>:8888


JinjaLive embeds unittests to ensure both functionnalities coverage but also Python code quality.

The test suite can be launched with tox:

cd jinjalive
sudo pip install -r test-requirements.txt

Apache configuration (optional)

If you want to serve the JinjaLive web application behind Apache, please use WSGI.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi
sudo a2enmod wsgi

Here is a sample Apache virtualhost:

<VirtualHost *:80>

    WSGIDaemonProcess jinjalive threads=5
    WSGIScriptAlias /jinja /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/jinjalive/jinjalive.wsgi

    <Directory /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/jinjalive>
        WSGIProcessGroup jinjalive
        WSGIApplicationGroup %{GLOBAL}
        WSGIScriptReloading On
        Require all granted

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/jinjalive.error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/jinjalive.access.log combined


Your JinjaLive web application is now available under http://<your_ip_address>/jinja.
