pypp: python preprocessor based on the Mako template engine

Project description


The primary benefit of pypp is improved readability of source code. Furthermore, the template engine provides powerful macro functionality which helps save keystrokes whilst coding.


  • Increases start-up time

  • Some template constructs confuse source code editor syntax highlight functionality


  • Ease of use: just one import statement

  • Speed: once compilation is done, no runtime overhead

  • Based on the Mako template engine



  • disabled template caching: (1) pypp is not optimizing start-up time (2) runtime time resources are optimized
