Genshi Compiler - Template compiler mostly compatible with Genshi's syntax https://github.com/viktor-ferenczi/genshi-compiler/ Installation: python setup.py install Genshi Compiler allows for compiling simple Genshi XML templates to pure Python code. You can render the whole template or any of the template functions by importing generated code. The generated code is typically ~40x faster than rendering the same via Genshi. There is a cost of this speedup. Some of Genshi's dynamic features are not available, most notably anything that depends on a template loader (xi:include), the XML element tree representation (py:match) or the token stream (filters). Language translation (i18n) support is currently limited to simple text inside the translatable elements and attributes and the i18n:msg directive.
