A library to make Jinja2 Extensions Easy

Project description

A Library to Quickly Turn Functions into Jinja2 Extensions

This library is best demonstrated through example:

import jinjatag

### Configure your Jinja2 Environment:
jinja_tag = jinjatag.JinjaTag()
jinja2_env = Environment(extensions=[jinja_tag])

### Decorate your functions

def mytag(foo, bar=None, **kwargs):
return "mytag: "+foo+(bar or '')+str(kwargs)

def myblock(body, foo, bar=None):
return "myblock : "+body+foo+(bar or '')


Then, in your template code, use your new tags:

{% mytag foo='abc' xyz='def' %}

{% myblock foo='bar' %}contents{% endmyblock %}

The resulting output:

mytag: abc{'xyz':'def'}

myblock: contentsbar

That's really all there is to it. A simple_tag is expected to accept 0 or more arguments and return a string. A simple_block is expected to accept at least one argument which will be its rendered body.


The module is registered with pypi, so simply use:

easy_install jinjatag

or, if you're so inclined:

pip install jinjatag
