Chameleon support for templating in Lektor.

Project description

This plugin makes it possible to write Lektor templates using Chameleon. It achieves this by replacing the Jinja renderer with the Chameleon renderer during template rendering.

The names defined in the Jinja environment are available in Chameleon templates:

<!-- Jinja -->
<h1>{{ this.title }}</h1>

<!-- Chameleon -->
<h1>${ this.title }</h1>

<!-- or -->
<h1 tal:content="this.title">Page title</h1>

<!-- Jinja -->
{{ bag('translate', this.alt, 'message') }}

<!-- Chameleon -->
<span tal:replace="bag('translate', this.alt, 'message')">message</span>

Many Lektor and Jinja filters are also available using the >> operator:

<!-- Jinja -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ '/static/custom.css'|url }}"/>

<!-- Chameleon -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="${'/static/custom.css' >> url}"/>

Filters also accept parameters:

<!-- Jinja -->
<a href="{{ '.'|url(alt=this.alt) }}">link text</a>

<!-- Chameleon -->
<a href="${'.' >> url(alt=this.alt)}">link text</a>

But filter parameters must be given as keyword parameters:

<!-- incorrect -->
<div tal:replace="this.body >> indent(4)">Page body</div>

<!-- correct -->
<div tal:replace="this.body >> indent(width=4)">Page body</div>
