Fast, robust HTML templating engine

Project description

piglet-templates is a text and HTML templating engine in the genshi/kajiki templates family.

The Piglet template engine offers:

  • Template inhertitance through <py:extends>/<py:block> (similar to Jinja2)
  • Compiles templates to fast python byte code.
  • HTML templating: templates produce well formed HTML. Template variables are autoescaped to protect against XSS attacks.
  • Reusable template functions.
  • Good i18n support.
  • Clear tracebacks from exceptions raised in templates.

Example piglet template:

<py:extends href="layout.html">
    <py:block name="content">
        <h1>This is the content block.</h1>
            Hello $user.firstnames $user.lastname!
        <p py:for="verse in in poem">
            <py:for each="line in verse">$line<br/></py:for>

There’s a text templating mode too:

Hello $user.firstnames $user.lastname!

{% for verse in poem %}
    {% for line in verse %}$line
    {% end %}
{% end %}
