pwt.jinja2js 0.6.0

with 2 comments

I have just uploaded a version 0.6.0 of pwt.jinja2js. This adds support for default values for macros arguments. So now you can do this:

{% macro defaultparam1(name = "World") -%}
Hello {{ name }}!
{%- endmacro %}


And you can call this like so to produce the desired output:

defaultparam1({}) -> "Hello World"
defaultparam({name: 'Michael'}) -> "Hello Michael"

  1. I’m a really big fan of this project, I have been using it a lot.

    But one thing that is really bugging me is the lack of support for the “safe” filter.

    Also, is there any way to detect if the template is being executed using JavaScript? The objects I use on JavaScript are differently structured than the ones on Python, and I’d like to keep the code that unifies the structure inside the macro.

    • Glad you are a fan.

      The “safe” filter is supported and works just like the Python version in Jinja2.

      Nope. There is no way to detect the execution environment and I don’t think their will be, in the end if you are trying to render different structures then I suggest using different templates / macros.
