Mako or Jinja2?

Python Programming

Question or problem about Python programming:

I didn’t find a good comparison of jinja2 and Mako. What would you use for what tasks ?

I personnaly was satisfied by mako (in a pylons web app context) but am curious to know if jinja2 has some nice features/improvements that mako doesn’t ? -or maybe downsides ?-

How to solve the problem:

Solution 1:

I personally prefer Jinja2’s syntax over Mako’s. Take this example from the Mako website

<%inherit file="base.html"/>
    rows = [[v for v in range(0,10)] for row in range(0,10)]
% for row in rows: ${makerow(row)} % endfor
