inquant.recipe.textfile 0.2.3

ZC Buildout recipe for creating text files out of templates.

This is a very simple recipe which generates a textfile from a template.

The template can be everything, and may contain python-style string formatters. The values will be replaced with the options you set inside the buildout.cfg section.

Parameters

template-directory -- the directory to fetch templates from

template -- the template file
default: $(name)s.in

location -- the output file

${buildout:template-directory} is set to ${buildout:directory}/templates if not set in the buildout section.

If location is not set, no file is created. You can always access the generated content using the content key, though.

Example

An example buildout.cfg:

[buildout]
parts=test.txt
template-directory=${buildout:directory}/templates

[test.txt]
recipe=inquant.recipe.textfile
template-directory=${buildout:template-directory}
template=test.txt.in
location=${buildout:directory}/test.txt

avalue=foo
anothervalue=bar

Note that due to the default settings (see above), the template-directory and template settings are redundant.

An example text template:

This is just a test

template=%(template)s
location=%(location)s

This is just text %(avalue)s and %(anothervalue)s got
replaced. See?

The recipe will read the template and replace the strings yielding something like:

This is just a test

template=/Users/seletz/develop/plone/buildout/templates/test.txt.in
location=/Users/seletz/develop/plone/buildout/test.txt

This is just text foo and bar got
replaced. See?
