Genshi renderer for lribeiro.cherrypy.templating

Project description

Genshi renderer for lribeiro.cherrypy.templating

It has three optional config entries:

  • templating.genshi.template_directories: can be a path to the templates directory, list of paths, or anything genshi.template.TemplateLoader accepts. If none is given, {root module directory}/templates is used as the template diretory.

  • templating.genshi.loader_options: dict containing additional arguments passed to the TemplateLoader constructor

  • templating.genshi.render_options: dict containing arguments used when rendering the template, for example, {‘method’: ‘html’, ‘doctype’: ‘html-transitional’}

You can also pass arguments to the render via @template decorator args and kwargs.

class Controller:
    @template('template_name.html', method='xhtml', doctype='xhtml11')
    def handler(self):

When setting the template name, remember that Genshi interprets a leading slash as an absolute path! So the following would probably raise a TemplateNotFound:

class WrongController:
    # pay attention to the leading slash
    # Genshi will look for a 'wrong_template_name.html' file on the root of the filesystem
    def wrong_handler(self):

Developed under Python3.4 and tested against Python2.7, Python3.4 and pypy.
