Slim templates syntax for Jinja2.

This release breaks compatibility. Parsing = for Jinja Output is complex. I dropped it in favor of directly using {{ jinja_output }}.

This release(1.0) onwards, the backward syntax compatibility will be maintained.

Installation

pip install slimish_jinja

Examples of using it as Jinja2 extension(jinja_demo.py), with Flask(flask_demo.py) and standalone(convert.py and demo.py) are bundled.

If you want to use it for any other purpose, the lexer - lexer.py and parser - parser.py are simple enough. lexer reads the input by lines and generates tokens. parser implements a hand rolled recursive descent parser.

For quick reference, this slim::
