This module implements various functions that exposes information about
templates that might be interesting for various kinds of applications.

.. admonition:: Implementation
Internally the code generator is used for finding undeclared variables.
This is good to know because the code generator might raise a
:exc:`TemplateAssertionError` during compilation and as a matter of
fact this function can currently raise that exception as well.

This function is useful for dependency tracking. For example if you want
to rebuild parts of the website after a layout template has changed.
