+Jinja2
+~~~~~~
+
+Jinja2 is a template engine written in pure Python. It provides a
+`Django`_ inspired non-XML syntax but supports inline expressions and
+an optional `sandboxed`_ environment.
+
+Nutshell
+--------
+
+Here a small example of a Jinja template::
+
+ {% extends 'base.html' %}
+ {% block title %}Memberlist{% endblock %}
+ {% block content %}
+ <ul>
+ {% for user in users %}
+ <li><a href="{{ user.url }}">{{ user.username }}</a></li>
+ {% endfor %}
+ </ul>
+ {% endblock %}
+
+Philosophy
+----------
+
+Application logic is for the controller but don't try to make the life
+for the template designer too hard by giving him too few functionality.
+
+For more informations visit the new `Jinja2 webpage`_ and `documentation`_.
+
+The `Jinja2 tip`_ is installable via `easy_install` with ``easy_install
+Jinja2==dev``.
