2.8 (2019-01-25)

2.7 (2016-11-15)

  • Drop Python 2.6 and 3.2 support.

  • Add Python 3.5 support.

  • #123: Switch to pytest and pip for testing and installation in the documentation and scaffold. nose and coverage are still used in the core pyramid_jinja2 package [stevepiercy].

  • Prefer resource_url over deprecated model_url. Pyramid has changed its vocabulary, so let’s reflect the changes. [Mikko Ohtamaa]

  • Support a dotted path to a gettext wrapper for the jinja2.i18n.gettext setting. [mmerickel]

2.6.2 (2016-01-23)

  • Officially drop support for Python 3.2, test under Python 3.5 and pypy3 [Domen Kozar]

2.6.1 (2016-01-20)

  • Don’t include .pyc in wheel file [Domen Kozar]

2.6 (2016-01-20)

  • #116: Update scaffold to be consistent with Pyramid’s default scaffolds [stevepiercy]

2.5 (2015-04-16)

  • #106: Allow specifying a custom pyramid_jinja.i18n.GetTextWrapper [dstufft]

2.4 (2015-03-27)

  • #105: Support jinja2.finalize configuration setting. [dstufft]

  • #94: Fix loading of templates with relative names on Windows [zart]

  • Support Python 3.4 [mmerickel]

  • Improve scaffold [marioidival]

  • #98: Avoid get_current_request where possible [housleyjk]

  • #99: Add resource_path filter [javex]

2.3.3 (2014-07-02)

  • #91: Fix a recursion error while attempting to include a template with the same name as one of the parents that was already loaded. [mmerickel]

2.3.2 (2014-06-13)

  • Fix 2.3.1 brownbag release. It had some erroneous didn’t-mean-to-push changes that are now solved. Brought coverage back up to 100%.

2.3.1 (2014-06-13)

  • Improve the template-relative searchpath logic to search more possibilities in the include-chain built up from templates including or extending other templates. The logic for when the chain was longer than just one template including another template was broken.

2.3 (2014-05-30)

  • Require pyramid_jinja2 to be included even when using pyramid_jinja2.renderer_factory. It is now a thin wrapper around the default renderer and can be used to share the same settings with another file extension. [mmerickel]

Backward Incompatible Changes

  • pyramid_jinja2 must be included into the Configurator in order to use pyramid_jinja2.renderer_factory otherwise you may see the exception:

    ValueError: As of pyramid_jinja2 2.3, the use of the
    "pyramid_jinja2.renderer_factory" requires that pyramid_jinja2 be
    configured via config.include("pyramid_jinja2") or the equivalent
    "pyramid.includes" setting.

    The fix is to include pyramid_jinja2:


2.2 (2014-05-30)

  • #88: Formalize template loading order and allow all lookups to fallback to the search path. A template is now always searched for relative to its parent template. If not found, the lookup will fallback to the search path. [mmerickel]

  • Add prepend option to config.add_jinja2_search_path to allow prepending of paths to the beginning of the search path if a path should override previously defined paths. [mmerickel]

2.1 (2014-05-16)

  • The 2.0 series started adding the package that invoked config.add_jinja2_renderer to the template search path. This is being removed in favor of explicit search paths and will hopefully not affect many people as it has only been available for a couple weeks. The only automatic search path left is the one added by the default .jinja2 renderer created when including pyramid_jinja2. [mmerickel]

  • Adjust the config.include("pyramid_jinja2") to add any packages from jinja2.directories before the default search path at the base of the app. Previously there was no way to override that search path. [mmerickel]

2.0.2 (2014-05-06)

  • The path of the child template is always considered when inheriting from a base template. Therefore when doing render("templates/foo.jinja2") and foo.jinja2 has an {% extends "base.jinja2" %}, the template will be searched for as "templates/base.jinja2" on the search path. Previously the path of the child template was ignored when doing the lookup for the base, causing some very subtle and unrecoverable lookup errors when the child template was found relative to the caller instead of being found on the search path. [mmerickel]

  • This release restores the default search path behaviors from the 1.x series that were inadvertently removed in the 2.x. The project’s root package is added to the search path by default. [mmerickel]

2.0.1 (2014-04-23)

  • #86: Fix a regression caused by the new support for extending a template relative to itself. Using {% extends "some_asset:spec.jinja2" %} was no longer working and is now fixed. [mmerickel]

2.0 (2014-04-21)

  • Claim Python 3.4 support [mmerickel]

  • #75: Fix the missing piece of relative template loading by allowing a template to inherit from a template relative to itself, instead of forcing the parent to be on the search path. [mmerickel]

  • #73: Added a new config.add_jinja2_renderer API that can create and override multiple Jinja2 renderers, each loaded using potentially different settings and extensions.

    The other APIs are now keyed on the renderer extension, as each extension may have different settings. Thus config.add_jinja2_search_path, config.add_jinja2_extension, and config.get_jinja2_environment accept a name argument, which defaults to .jinja2.

    This deprecates the old pyramid_jinja2.renderer_factory mechanism for adding renderers with alternate extensions.

    Configuration of the renderers has been updated to follow Pyramid’s standard mechanisms for conflict detection. This means that if two modules both try to add a renderer for the .jinja2 extension, they may raise a conflict or the modifications made by the invocation closest to the Configurator in the call-stack will win. This behavior can be affected by calling config.commit at appropriate times to force a configuration to take effect immediately. As such, configuration is deferred until commit-time, meaning that it is now possible config.get_jinja2_environment will return None because the changes have not yet been committed. [mmerickel]

Backward Incompatible Changes

  • The creation and configuration of the Jinja2 Environment is now deferred until commit-type in the Pyramid Configurator. This means that config.get_jinja2_environment may return None. To resolve this, invoke config.commit() before attempting to get the environment.

1.10 (2014-01-11)

  • #77: Change semantics of jinja2.bytecode_caching setting. The new default is false (no bytecode caching) – bytecode_caching must explicitly be set to true to enable a filesystem bytecode cache. In addition, an atexit callback to clean the cache is no longer registered (as this seemed to defeat most of the purpose of having a bytecode cache.) Finally, a more complex bytecode cache may be configured by setting jinja2.bytecode_caching directly to a jinja2.BytecodeCache instance. (This can not be done in a paste .ini file, it must be done programatically.) [dairiki]

  • prevent error when using python bdist_wheel [msabramo]

1.9 (2013-11-08)

  • fix indentation level for Jinja2ProjectTemplate in scaffolds/ [Bruno Binet]

  • Remove unnecessary dependency on pyramid.interfaces.ITemplateRenderer which was deprecated in Pyramid 1.5. [mmerickel]

  • #68: Added model_path_filter, route_path_filter and static_path_filter filters [Remco]

  • #74: Fixed issue with route being converted as_const by jinja2 engine when using btyecode cache [Remco]

1.8 (2013-10-03)

  • #70: Do not pin for py3.2 compatibility unless running under py3.2 [dairiki]

1.7 (2013-08-07)

  • #56: python3.3: Non-ASCII characters in changelog breaks pip installation [Domen Kozar]

  • #57: Remove useless warning: DeprecationWarning: reload_templates setting is deprecated, use pyramid.reload_templates instead. [Marc Abramowitz]

1.6 (2013-01-23)

  • Set jinja2.i18n.domain default to the package name of the pyramid application. [Domen Kozar]

  • Add jinja2.globals setting to add global objects into the template context [Eugene Fominykh]

  • Add jinja2.newstyle setting to enable newstyle gettext calls [Thomas Schussler]

1.5 (2012-11-24)

  • Add pyramid.reload_templates to set jinja2.auto_reload instead of using reload_templates. Deprecate the latter. [Domen Kozar]

  • Clear bytecode cache on atexit [Domen Kozar]

  • Add support for more Jinja2 options. Note support for jinja2.autoescape is limited to boolean only.

    • jinja2.block_start_string

    • jinja2.block_end_string

    • jinja2.variable_start_string

    • jinja2.variable_end_string

    • jinja2.line_comment_prefix

    • jinja2.trim_blocks

    • jinja2.newline_sequence

    • jinja2.optimized

    • jinja2.cache_size

    • jinja2.autoescape

    [Michael Ryabushkin]

1.4.2 (2012-10-17)

  • Add jinja2.undefined setting to change handling of undefined types. [Robert Buchholz]

  • Remove redundant decoding error handling [Domen Kozar]

  • Configure bytecode caching by default. Introduce jinja2.bytecode_caching and jinja2.bytecode_caching_directory settings. [Domen Kozar]

  • Allow to add custom Jinja2 tests in jinja2.tests setting. [Sebastian Kalinowski]

1.4.1 (2012-09-12)

  • Fix brown-bag release [Domen Kozar]

1.4 (2012-09-12)

  • Correctly resolve relative search paths passed to add_jinja2_search_path and jinja2.directories [Domen Kozar]

  • #34: Don’t recreate jinja2.Environment for add_jinja2_extension [Domen Kozar]

  • Drop Python 2.5 compatibility [Domen Kozar]

  • Addition of static_url filter.

  • Add dev and docs aliases (ala Pyramid).

  • Changed template loading relative to package calling the renderer so it works like the Chameleon template loader.

1.3 (2011-12-14)

  • Make scaffolding compatible with Pyramid 1.3a2+.

1.2 (2011-09-27)

  • Make tests pass on Pyramid 1.2dev.

  • Make compatible with Python 3.2 (requires Pyramid 1.3dev+).

1.1 (2011-07-24)

  • Add get_jinja2_environment directive.

  • Add all configurator directives to documentation.

1.0 (2011-05-12)

  • Message domain can now be specified with jinja2.i18n.domain for i18n

  • Paster template now sets up starter locale pot/po/mo files

  • pyramid_jinja2 now depends on Jinja2 >= 2.5.0 due to jinja2.Environment.install_gettext_callables use

  • Added demo app just to visualize i18n work

0.6.2 (2011-04-06)

  • jinja2.ext.i18n is now added by default, see i18n.rst for details

  • Added add_jinja2_extension directive to the Configurator

  • Updated jinja2.extensions parsing mechanism

  • Fixed docs to indicate using asset: prefix is no longer necessary

0.6.1 (2011-03-03)

  • Asset-based loading now takes precedance and does not require “asset:” prefix

  • Fixed the “current” package mechanism of asset: loading so that it more accurately finds the current package

  • Dependency on pyramid_zcml removed.

0.6 (2011-02-15)

  • Documentation overhauled.

  • Templates can now be looked up by asset spec completely bypassing the search path by specifying a prefix of asset:.

  • Updated paster template to more closely relate to changes made to paster templmates in Pyramid core.

  • Add new directive add_jinja2_search_path to the configurator when includeme is used.

0.5 (2011-01-18)

0.4 (2010-12-16)

Paster Template

  • Changes to normalize with default templates shipping with Pyramid core: remove calls to config.begin() and config.end() from __init__.main, entry point name changed to main, entry function name changed to main, depend on WebError, use paster_plugins argument to setup function in, depend on Pyramid 1.0a6+ (use config rather than configurator).


  • Use testing.setUp and testing.tearDown rather than constructing a Configurator (better fwd compat).


  • Add model_url and route_url filter implementations (and documented).


  • Use Makefile which pulls in Pylons theme automagically.

0.3 (2010-11-26)

  • Add jinja2.filters and jinja2.extensions settings (thanks to aodag).

  • Document all known settings.

0.2 (2010-11-06)

  • Template autoreloading did not function, even if reload_templates was set to True.

0.1 (2010-11-05)

  • First release. Not backwards compatible with repoze.bfg.jinja2: we use a filesystem loader (the directories to load from come from the jinja2.directories setting). No attention is paid to the current package when resolving a renderer= line.
