small but fast and easy to use stand-alone template engine

Jinja 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.

Philosophy: 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.


 * Simple API.
 * Extremely lightweight.
 * The whole engine is completely sandboxed. A template designer won't be able
   to modify application data or execute dangerous code
 * You can use nearly every Python expression. Not supported are the binary
   operators and list comprehensions / generator expressions.
 * Uses the same concept for inheritance Django uses. It's very powerful
   and easy to understand.
 * Provides so called macros that allow you to put often used template
   snippets into callable blocks
 * Designer friendly. Jinja simplifies many things for a template designer.
   Loops can be used in a recursive way, filters are available to format
   values, loops know about their iteration etc.
 * Dynamic syntax. You don't like the Django block syntax? You can override
   the syntax elements on environment initialisation. It's no problem to use
   ASP/PHP/Ruby syntax, html comments for blocks etc.
