Write the Jemplate runtime code into Jemplate.js, then compile all the template files in the templates/ directory and put the output in my-jemplate.js.

    jemplate --runtime > Jemplate.js
    jemplate --compile templates/* > my-jemplate.js

Do the same thing, but put the output into one file.

    jemplate --runtime > my-jemplate.js
    jemplate --compile templates/* >> my-jemplate.js


The template-list is the list of template files that will be compiled. If something in the list is a file, then the template name will be just the file name. If it is a directory, then all the files under that directory will be found, and the relative paths to those files will be the template name.

So 'template/foo/bar.tt2' will be named 'bar.tt2', but 'template/' will find a template named 'foo/bar.tt2'.

It is important to know what Jemplate thinks the template name will be when you are writing templates or code that refers to other templates. Use the --list option to check this.


    -r, --runtime
        This flag tells Jemplate to print the Jemplate JavaScript
        runtime code to STDOUT. You should redirect this output into
        a .js file.

    -c, --compile
        The --compile flag tells Jemplate to actually compile templates.
        The output is written to STDOUT.

    -l, --list
        Just print (STDOUT) the template names that Jemplate would use
        from the template-list.

Template Toolkit Compile Options

Jemplate allows you to specify the following Template Toolkit compile time options. Full descriptions of these options are available at <>.

These options may either be set as JEMPLATE_* environment variables or as command line switches.

    --start-tag (JEMPLATE_START_TAG)
        Specify the starting template delimiter to use. Default is '[%'.

    --end-tag (JEMPLATE_END_TAG)
        Specify the ending template delimiter to use. Default is '%]'.

    --pre-chomp (JEMPLATE_PRE_CHOMP)
        Chomp leading whitespace automatically. Default is off.

    --post-chomp (JEMPLATE_POST_CHOMP)
        Chomp trailing whitespace automatically. Default is off.

    --trim (JEMPLATE_TRIM)
        Trim leading and trailing whitespace. Default is off.

    --any-case (JEMPLATE_ANYCASE)
        Allow lower or mixed case for template directives. Default is off.

    --eval (--noeval) (JEMPLATE_EVAL_JAVASCRIPT)
        Allow the execution of raw JavaScript. Default is on.
        Use --noeval to disallow it.

Jemplate Options

These compile time options are specific to Jemplate.

    -s, --source
        Include the original template source code as a JavaScript
        comment next to each compiled template.

        Exclude any file matching the given regular expression.
