Use Cheetah template engine in webpy

Use Cheetah template engine in webpy

Problem

How to use Cheetah template engine in webpy?

Solution

You need to install both Cheetah and webpy(0.3) first: http://www.cheetahtemplate.org/. And then try out the following code snippet:

# encoding: utf-8
# File: code.py

import web
from web.contrib.template import render_cheetah

render = render_cheetah('templates/')

urls = (
    '/(first)', 'first',
    '/(second)', 'second'
    )

app = web.application(urls, globals(), web.reloader)

class first:
    def GET(self, name):
        # cheetah template takes only keyword arguments,
        # you should call it as:
        #   return render.hello(name=name)
        # Below is incorrect:
        #   return render.hello(name)
        return render.first(name=name)

class second:
    def GET(self, name):
        return render.first(**locals())

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.run()

Template file:

## File: templates/first.html

hello, $name.
