Hi there,

There is now a `megrok.chameleon` template engine available for use with


It provides support for chameleon-driven Zope page templates and also
for Genshi templates. Chameleon is the template engine also used by
repoze.bft and it (chameleon) is said to be faster than regular Zope
page templates.

Note, that the package only works with Python2.5 (due to chameleon uses
Python2.5 expressions)!

`megrok.chameleon` registers the following new template filename

* `.cpt`: Chameleon Page Template

  Those templates behave similar to regular Zope page templates 
  (.pt-files) but use Python expressions by default and support 
  Genshi-like variable substitutions. So you do not write::


  anymore but instead::


* `.cg`: Chameleon driven Genshi Template

  Genshi-like templates. See 

* `.cgt`: Chameleon driven Genshi Text Template

  Genshi-like text templates.

The package is currently only a quick hack, probably not implemented
very smart, but you might give it a try in non-production environments.

Any feedback is very welcome.

Best regards,
