Lots of people use Django template for Pyhton Web Framework(As Django project shares).
And if we want to make people feel comfortable to try TurboGears (and then migrate to tg hopefully), first thing we can do is making django template system available on TurboGears.
Its easy because many template plugins (and their source codes) are available for TurboGears, I use a couple hours to read the template plugins doc and make the TurboDjango template plugin.
You can try the django template in minutes. Here is the step by step guide:
Install By SetupTools
$ easy_install TurboDjango
How to Make it just Work? Step 1. Quickstart
Use tg-admin tool to create a project
$ tg-admin quickstart tgdj
The project name is “tgdj” Step 2. Edit Controller
Edit tgdj/tgdj/controller.py, add following method in “Root” class. > @expose(template = “django:tgdj.templates.djpage”)
def page(self): return dict(name=“TurboGears”) “djpage” is django template name
Step 3. Edit Template
> [h1]Hello, [/h1] The template has “html” file suffix
Step 4. Check Result
In tgdj, start develop server by typing
Then surf http://localhost:8080/page, you’ll see
> # Hello, TurboGears The Release is available here.
