When Pyramid scaffolding finds files with the suffix _templ, it inspects the file for variables such as {{project}}, {{package}}, and {{package_logger}} and replaces them. However, when using Jinja2 templates, this collides with standard variable replacement, and the outcome is that pcreate dies.

To solve this problem, I've added a function substitute_escaped_double_braces that takes values the following string: "\{\{ mystring \}\}" and exports "{{ mystring }}". This is handy because it allows a developer to use other templating languages without generating collisions.

This'll definitely need some tests :-)

It should be a matter of just adding your escaped pattern to one of the templates in the scaffold test project and a test to ensure that the pattern is still in the rendered template.

I added a test case for this on the issue #862.
