Jinja is a sandboxed template engine written in pure Python. It provides a Django like non-XML syntax and compiles templates into executable python code. It's basically a combination of Django templates and python code.


Here a small example of a Jinja template:

{% extends 'base.html' %}
{% block title %}Memberlist{% endblock %}
{% block content %}

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 17)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

<ul> {% for user in users %} <li><a href="{{ user.url|e }}">{{ user.username|e }}</a></li> {% endfor %} </ul> {% endblock %}


Application logic is for the controller but don't try to make the life for the template designer too hard by giving him too few functionality.

For more informations visit the new jinja webpage and documentation.


This is the Jinja 1.0 release which is completely incompatible with the old "pre 1.0" branch. The old branch will still receive security updates and bugfixes but the 1.0 branch will be the only version that receives support.

If you have an application that uses Jinja 0.9 and won't be updated in the near future the best idea is to ship a Jinja 0.9 checkout together with the application.

The Jinja tip is installable via easy_install with easy_install Jinja==dev.
