Integrate Tornado Web Framework and Jinja2 Templates

Project Description

Integrate Tornado Web Framework and Jinja2 Templates

Requires Python >= 3.3 or Python 2.7.


pip install torinja



Use torinja’s Jinja2Env as the template_loader of your Application.

from tornado.web import Application
from torinja import Jinja2Env
from jinja2 import PackageLoader

application = Application(
        loader=PackageLoader('myapp', 'templates'),  # You can pass any jinja2 loaders

Jinja2Env is a jinja2.Environment subclass, so it accepts all the options to jinja2.Environment.

The only difference is that autoescape is set to True by default.


In your handlers, you can call RequestHandler.render or RequestHandler.render_string as you would do with tornado templates.

class MyHandler(RequestHandler):

    def get(self):
        self.render('index.html', tornado='awesome', jinja2='rocks')


To use xsrf_form_html in your jinja2 templates, use it as a variable.

    {{ xsrf_form_html }}
    <input type="text" name="text">
    <!-- ... -->


To run the tests:
