Is Jinja2 documentation out of date?


I am getting 2 errors by doing simple things that follow the documentation here <a href="http://jinja.pocoo.org/docs/templates/" rel="nofollow">http://jinja.pocoo.org/docs/templates/</a> :

{% if lang == 'fr' %} bonjour {% elif lang == 'en' %} hello {% endif %}

TemplateSyntaxError: Invalid block tag: 'elif', expected 'else' or 'endif'


{% extends "skeleton.html" %} {% block a_name %} {{ super() }} I am extended {% endblock %}

where skeleton.html contains {% block a_name %} hi I am skeleton {% endblock %}

TemplateSyntaxError: Could not parse the remainder: '()' from 'super()

Any clue on that ? Thanks


I was using jinja2 with Google App Engine. Well, I <em>thought</em> I was doing so, but a closer look to the exception and the file stack trace, showed that it said "django".

For future reference, doing


will make appengine render the template with django. Even if it says jinja2/latest in app.yaml under libraries.

You must import jinja2 and explicitly use template = jinja2.get_environment... to make it work. See <a href="https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/python/gettingstartedpython27/templates?hl=fr" rel="nofollow">https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/python/gettingstartedpython27/templates?hl=fr</a> for more info

Thanks for setting me on the track @Blender
