Crowdfunding Multiple Template Engines for Django
Loose coupling is one of Django's key design principles. Services such as querying a database, accessing a cache or sending email are provided by pluggable backends. However, Django doesn't provide an API for pluggable template engines. While some third-party adapters exist, there's no standard way to use third-party template engines such as Jinja2.
Django core team member Aymeric Augustin would like fix this situation by providing first-class support for third-party template engines and native Jinja2 integration.
However, to do this he needs the community's help. Major refactoring efforts with strong backwards-compatibility requirements take time, and that time can be hard to find in a busy schedule. To help fund development, Aymeric has launched a project on Indiegogo.
