EaZy Templating (EZT) is a fast and simple templating system for Python-based software.
EZT focuses on data substitution, rather than placing a Turing-complete language into template files. The templates are fast to parse, and fast to render. EZT supports a parse-once and render-many approach if thousands of renderings are necessary. In most cases, the parse/render sequence will be fast enough for the application.

EZT was started as part of the edna project in early 2001. However, it was also intended towards use within the ViewVC project. The bulk of EZT development occured as part of ViewVC during 2001 and 2002.
In 2003, EZT started to get used in additional places: SubWiki, Subversion's build system, and some infrastructure pieces at the ASF. Greg also had a little private project which used and further modified EZT.
The EZT project was started in October 2003 to pull together all of the various incarnations and derivative developments of EZT into a single, canonical location. This project was moved to Google Code in June 2008.
On August 22, 2015, EZT was exported from Google Code (due to its imminent move to read-only / archival status), and landed on GitHub: https://github.com/gstein/ezt, where development continues (glacially, given EZT's mature status).
