Render HTML from Python using plain data structures, inspired by Clojure's Hiccup

Project description


PyPI PyPI - Python Version


Render HTML from Python using plain data structures, inspired by Clojure's Hiccup.


pip install piccup


piccup allows you to write HTML using plain Python data structures.

>>> p.html(['p', 'hello'])

Each HTML node is defined using [element, attributes, contents] triple. element string is required, attributes dict and contents object are optional.

>>> p.html(['a',
            {'href': ''}, 
            'Click Me'])
'<a href="">Click Me</a>'

Nested HTML nodes are passed to contents.

>>> p.html(['ul', 
            [['li', 'first'], 
             ['li', 'second'], 
             ['li', 'third']]])

piccup uses simple data structures, so you can write normal Python code instead of a foreign templating language.

>>> p.html(['ul',
            [['li', {'class': 'link-item'},
              ['a', {'href': '{}'.format(e)}, e]]
             for e in ['item1', 'item2', 'item3']]])
'<ul><li class="link-item"><a href="">item1</a></li><li class="link-item"><a href="">item2</a></li><li class="link-item"><a href="">item3</a></li></ul>'
