+Cheetah is an open source template engine and code generation tool.
+It can be used standalone or combined with other tools and frameworks. Web
+development is its principle use, but Cheetah is very flexible and is also being
+used to generate C++ game code, Java, sql, form emails and even Python code.
+For a high-level introduction to Cheetah please refer to the User\'s Guide

+"I\'m enamored with Cheetah" - Sam Ruby, senior member of IBM Emerging
+Technologies Group & director of Apache Software Foundation
+"Give Cheetah a try. You won\'t regret it. ... Cheetah is a truly powerful
+system. ... Cheetah is a serious contender for the 'best of breed' Python
+templating." - Alex Martelli
+"People with a strong PHP background absolutely love Cheetah for being Smarty,
+but much, much better." - Marek Baczynski
+"I am using Smarty and I know it very well, but compiled Cheetah Templates with
+its inheritance approach is much powerful and easier to use than Smarty." -
+Jaroslaw Zabiello
+"There is no better solution than Cheetah" - Wilk
+"A cheetah template can inherit from a python class, or a cheetah template, and
+a Python class can inherit from a cheetah template. This brings the full power
+of OO programming facilities to the templating system, and simply blows away
+other templating systems" - Mike Meyer
+"Cheetah has successfully been introduced as a replacement for the overweight
+XSL Templates for code generation. Despite the power of XSL (and notably XPath
+expressions), code generation is better suited to Cheetah as templates are much
+easier to implement and manage." - The FEAR development team
+ (
+"I\'ve used Cheetah quite a bit and it\'s a very good package" - Kevin Dangoor,
+lead developer of TurboGears.
