A Jinja2 template loader for Django 1.2+
Add the following to your file. (The comma is important!)
TEMPLATE_LOADERS = ('jinja2_for_django.Loader',)
Now use your templates as usual (with render_to_response, generic views or
anything else that uses Django templates), and they will actually be
rendered by Jinja2.
