Jinja2 template bindings for repoze.bfg

Project Description
``repoze.bfg`` bindings for `Jinja2 <http:>`_

These are bindings for the `Jinja2 templating system`_ for the
``repoze.bfg`` web framework.

High-Level API

The API follows the pattern of the "default" template API for
``repoze.bfg``, which includes three functions: ``get_template``,
``render_template``, and ``render_template_to_response``. From within
a repoze.bfg view function, you might do::

from webob import Response

from repoze.bfg.jinja2 import get_template
template = get_template('templates/foo.jinja2')
return Response(template.render(foo=1))


from repoze.bfg.jinja2 import render_template
s = render_template('templates/foo.jinja2', foo=1)
return Response(s)


from repoze.bfg.jinja2 import render_template_to_response
return render_template_to_response('templates/foo.jinja2', foo=1)

All of these examples are equivalent. The first argument passed in to
each of them (representing the template location) can be either a full
system file path, or can be a file path relative to the package in
which the view function is defined (as shown above).

``repoze.bfg.jinja2`` can also act as a "renderer" for a view when its
``configure.zcml`` file is included within the ``repoze.bfg``
application you're developing::

def aview(request):
return {'foo':1}

See the generated ``bfg_jinja2_starter`` paster template for an
example of using the renderer facility.


Install using setuptools, e.g. (within a virtualenv)::

$ easy_install -i repoze.bfg.jinja2

Creating a Jinja2 ``repoze.bfg`` Project

After you've got ``repoze.bfg.jinja2`` installed, you can invoke the
following command to create a Jinja2-based ``repoze.bfg`` project::

$ paster create -t bin/paster create -t bfg_jinja2_starter
