Django Chili for using static HTML as templates

TL;DR: Django Chili - Use static HTML files as templates with Django projects

My wife and I were fiddling around with Figma/Anima just to see how pretty we could make the Django tutorial app, but after a couple of iterations I really got tired of re-applying my templatetags and so, unlike a sane person who might have just threw together a script to patch the HTML, I decided to try my hand at making some custom tags to do it for me. And why not package it? And why not create a readthedocs? And an icon for it? And a whole github organization too for the one repo?

Over-engineered all-around, but it was fun to do.

I hope someone finds it useful!


Cool stuff :slight_smile: Do you have a real-world project that’s built this way you could share some of the code of, to get a sense of what it looks like in practice?
