Zope-compatible page template engine based on Chameleon.

Project description


Latest release Supported Python versions

This package provides a page template engine implementation based on Chameleon. It plugs into the zope.pagetemplate package and has an explicit dependency on this package.

You can use the package to replace Zope’s reference template engine with Chameleon in an application based on the Zope Toolkit.


The package is configured via ZCML.
