I can't comment to much on Cheetah because I don't use it.
However, we will be releasing a new template package in the next couple
of days which is very ease to use and yet very powerful. Our package
integrates seamlessly into WebWare allowing you to easily mix templates
in with your regular servlets as well as anything else you want. The
templates are based on a modified version of phpBB templates, and like
Cheetah the templates are compiled. However, we are compiling the
templates on a as needed bases on the fly. In other words all you have
to do is tell the "template" function what template you are using and it
will compile it if needed or use the compiled one if that is
appropriate. I really think you will be happy with it, we are just
getting the package ready to distribute. I will post a message back to
this group once the website is up and ready

Subject: [Webware-discuss] Cheetah and Webware
Can someone give me a 10,000 foot overview of Cheetah and Webware
I have a pure Webware site that I would like to play with converting to
Cheetah. My experiments have not been, umm, entirely successful.
My basic questions, I think, revolve around the inheritance structure.
Webware, I have my own SitePage derive from WebKit.SidebarPage, then I
SecurePage.py derive from that for those pages that need a username, and
I should, I think, be able to mix Cheetah tmpl pages, PSP pages, and
scripts freely in my inheritance structure. Isn't that true? If so,
does Cheetah's base class fit into the picture?
When I played with this, I found that the root level 'render me'
differed between the two, and I couldn't seem to get them resolved
I'd appreciate any advice.
