Grantlee version 0.1.0 has been released by the Grantlee team. For those not in the know, Django is a high-level Python Web framework. It can be used to develop websites, and offers numerous features to make such a task easier.
Django's template system is designed to separate content and presentation with a clean and easy yet powerful syntax. Grantlee is a string template library based on the syntax and design of this template system and is written in Qt. It provides the possibility of user extensible theming to Qt and KDE based applications, and provides tools for other template based document creation including code generation and mail-merge.
As it is based on Django, there is already a community of designers familiar with the syntax, and a community of developers implementing logical fixes and writing new extensions.
This 0.1.0 release of Grantlee will initially be used by KJots in the 4.5 release, and by the Qt based Arduino IDE for theming and code generation. It will soon be making more appearances in KDE PIM applications for theming support. A Google Summer of Code project is already proposed to bring Grantlee and GetHotNewStuff support to KMail for user defined themes.
