Python templating library with templates included.

Project description

Python Templates is an Apache2 licensed html templating library, written in pure-Python, including popular HTML templates like Bootstrap.


Python Templates is a work-in-progress.

  • Improve semantic components?

    • What should be a function vs class? Currently, it’s mostly just inheritance with methods. That feels basic to me. At the other extreme is an element-tree api with visitor pattern. I think the significance of this project is finding the balance between those too.

    • This project seems to go against “flat is better than nested”. But I like the idea of using regular Python for template features like: if-statements, for-loops, and inheritance.

  • Add more front-end frameworks.

  • Demo project ideas:

    • Link shortener

    • E-commerce page

    • Blog

  • Include images, fonts, icons?

You can access documentation in the interpreter with Python’s built-in help function. The help works on modules, classes and methods in Python Templates.

>>> import templates
>>> help(templates)
>>> from templates import bootstrap
>>> help(bootstrap)
>>> help(bootstrap.Starter)
>>> help(bootstrap.Jumbotron)

There’s also a demo which you can run using bottle:

$ pip install bottle
$ python -m templates.demo
