ErlyDTL NEWS file

This file records noteworthy changes and additions to erlydtl as suggested by the GNU Coding Standards.

0.12.1 (2016-09-21)

  • #248 support filters in {{ _(var) }}.

0.12.0 (2016-08-08)

  • #230 Use phash2/1 explicitly. It's not in compat layer

  • #240 custom tags parameters parsing not handling newlines

  • #242 Support for 19

  • #246 make the 'join' filter work with numbers

0.11.1 (2015-10-26)

Fix build issues and missed update version info in .app-file.

0.11.0 (2015-10-25)

I've failed to keep track. Please check resolved issues on github.

0.10.0 (2014-12-20)

  • Fix issue with generated code for for loops (#167).

  • Fix issue with using keywords as attributes (#177), or as variables (#194).

  • Fix issue when including multiple templates extending a common base template (#176).

  • New w option for toggling compile time warnings. Currently, there is only one, non_block_tag, which is triggered on any non-block data in an extends-template.

  • Add missing features to the cycle tag (#195) (still missing independtly stepping the cycle value).

  • Support records in regroup tag (#191).

  • Support for maps (#196).

0.9.4 (2014-04-15)

  • Fix compile time variables and constants (#61)

  • The vars compile time option has been deprecated in favor of default_vars.

  • Support for translation contexts (#131)

    context is now a reserved keyword.

  • Support for plural forms in blocktrans blocks (#131)

    As a side effect of the this, count and plural are now reserved keywords (the latter only as the tag name).

  • Renamed compile options for translation_fun and locales to align with the render options counter parts.

  • Support _ prefix on template variables to avoid unused variable warnings, Erlang style (#164).

  • Switched to eunit_formatters by @seancribbs for improved eunit reporting.

  • All tests pass on Erlang 17.0! :)

0.9.3 (2014-03-27)

  • Fix release process to work for non-git installations (#154).
  • Fix list indexing (#155).
  • New option for 0-based list/tuple access (#156) (see README for details).

0.9.2 (2014-03-22)

  • Added NEWS file.
  • Fixed broken compile_dir (#146).
  • The backwards incompatible change in 0.9.1 for directory-compiled templates has been reverted. A new render function has been added instead (#148).
  • Fixed broken escape feature (#150).
  • Added translator comments (#152, #127) (@seriyps).

0.9.1 (2014-03-02)

This release brings a row of major internal improvements and also a few new and improved features.

  • Replaced most of erl_syntax use for merl (#123).
  • Refactored compiler and test suite (#134, #136).
  • Updated result value for directory-compiled (compile_dir) templates to return {ok, Rendered} | {error, Reason} just as for normally compiled templates. Please note that this is a backwards incompatible change.
  • Regroup tag is now Django compatible! (the formerly required endregroup tag has been made optional) (#101).
  • The trans tag now supports the {% trans "text string" as Varname %} construct to catch the translated text rather than output it in place.
  • {{ block.super }} is now supported in child blocks (#18).
  • Template:variables() now only lists referenced render variables (#118).
  • New erlydtl_library behaviour for adding custom filters and tags (#137).
  • New load tag added. Only difference to that of django is that we don't support loading a library from a package, as there are no notion of packages in Erlang (#100).
  • New compile options supporting the load tag: libraries and default_libraries. See the readme. (the previous custom_tags_modules and custom_filters_modules are still supported, although being marked deprecated in favour of the new options).
  • New compile options for aid in debugging erlydtl itself: debug_compiler and debug_root as described in the readme (#139).

See milestone 0.9.1 for a complete list of closed issues in this release.

Happy templating!

0.9.0 (2014-02-17)

After some fluctuating stability around 0.8.1, this release brings a set of improvements that has been tested not only by the test suite, but also in a couple of projects.

  • API changes. Added _file and _template suffixes to the compile functions to explicitly convey what is to be compiled.
  • Autoescape is now enabled by default. Use the relatively new auto_escape option if you want this disabled by default.
  • blocktrans blocks can now be translated to multiple locales in runtime. (thanks to @seriyps).
  • trans and _(...) tags can now be translated to multiple locales at compile time. (thanks to @seriyps).
  • Don't want to save the compiled .beam file? Use {out_dir, false} compile time option (this was possible before as well, when no out_dir was specified, but that results in a warning).
  • The error reporting has been fixed for certain cases.

0.8.2 (2014-01-29)

My sincere apologies, this really should have been in the 0.8.1 release.

This release brings the new error/warning options and return values also to the compile_dir api function.

Backwards incompatible notes:

Please notice that the new error reporting options also introduces subtle incompatible changes in the API (see #126).

It's not hard to adapt, but I want you all to be aware of this when upgrading.

These changes were made already in 0.8.1, but the specs were not, so dialyzer did not pick up on them.

0.8.1 (2014-01-19)

This release is a clean-up release with a bunch of minor issues squeezed out.

  • Improved options for error reporting.
  • new auto_escape compile option for django purists.
  • Cleaned out some warnings given by Dialyzer.
  • Major improvements to the generated code for for-loops.


The compile_dir function is not updated to the new way of reporting errors and warnings, and is in a semi-workable state. A fix is committed to master, and will be included in the next release.

0.8.0 (2014-01-10)

This is a release to bring in all the changes together since 0.7.0, and will be the starting point for a lot of future improvements.

0.7.0 (2011-03-21

  • Support no-argument version of date filter.

0.6.0 (2010-04-28)

  • Implement trans tag with support for .po files Includes a .po parser and generator, docs, and tests. See README_I18N.

    Many thanks to David Garcia.

0.5.3 (2009-08-13)

  • Create "ebin" directory if it does not exist. Thanks to uri.sharf for the bug report, for the patch.

0.5.2 (2009-02-13)

  • Do not require a space between a variable name and closing bracket, e.g. allow {{var1}}.

0.5.1 (2008-10-23)

  • Applied patch from Dan Milstein to fix a crash when rendering floats.
  • Added a baseline failing test case for the problem.

0.5.0 (2008-08-07)

  • Run functional tests from "make test".
  • Clean up the output from all test suites.
  • New README file.
  • Remove create_parser stuff because "make" handles this.
  • Make erlydtl:compile/2,3 a wrapper for erlydtl_compiler:compile/2,3.
