Chameleon template integration for Morepath

more.chameleon: Chameleon template integration for Morepath

more.chameleon is an extension for Morepath that adds Zope Page Template (ZPT) support for the .pt extension, using the Chameleon template engine.

For details on the ZPT template language see the Chameleon language reference.

Example usage:

from more.chameleon import ChameleonApp

class App(ChameleonApp):
    pass

@App.path(path='persons/{name}')
class Person(object):
     def __init__(self, name):
         self.name = name

@App.template_directory()
def get_template_directory():
    return 'templates'

@App.html(model=Person, template='person.pt')
def person_default(self, request):
    return {'name': self.name}

and then in person.pt (in the templates subdirectory):

<html>
<body>
<p>Hello ${name}!</p>
</body>
</html>

During development it can be helpful to have Chameleon reload templates automatically after a change. To enable this feature use the MOREPATH_TEMPLATE_AUTO_RELOAD environment variable.

You can enable it for your process:

MOREPATH_TEMPLATE_AUTO_RELOAD=1 python run.py

Or for your shell:

export MOREPATH_TEMPLATE_AUTO_RELOAD=1
python run.py

To further control Chameleon rendering you can define a chameleon setting section in your app. For instance, here is how you turn on Chameleon’s debug functionality:

@App.setting_section(section='chameleon')
def get_setting_section():
    return {'debug': True}

For details on Chameleon configuration options, consult the configuration keyword arguments in the Chameleon API reference.
