A Preprocessor for Python

Preppy is ReportLab's templating system.  It was developed in late 2000 and has been in continual production use since then.  It is open source (BSD-license).

The key features are:

 * small: Preppy is a single Python module.  If you want a templating system 'in the box', it's easy to include it in your project

 * easy to learn: It takes about one minute to scan all the features

 * just Python: We have not invented another language, and if you want to do something - includes, quoting, filters - you just use Python

 * compiled to bytecode: a .prep file gets compiled to a Python function in a .pyc file

 * easy to debug: preppy generates proper Python exceptions, with the correct line numbers for the .prep file.  You can follow tracebacks from Python script to Preppy template and back, through multiple includes

 * easy to type and read:  We've been using ``{{this}}`` syntax since well before Django was thought of

 * 8-bit safe:  it makes no assumption that you are generating markup and does nothing unexpected with whitespace; you could use it to generate images or binary files if you wanted to.
