Writing new renderer backends

If you wish to implement an alternate method of template rendering, you can do so by subclassing the TemplateRenderer class. There is only one method implementors must override:

If you want your renderer to be available as a backend for TemplatingComponent, you need to add the corresponding entry point for it. Suppose your serializer class is named AwesomeRenderer, lives in the package foo.bar.awesome and you want to give it the alias awesome, add this line to your project’s setup.py under the entry_points argument in the asphalt.templating.renderers namespace:

    # (...other arguments...)
        'asphalt.templating.renderers': [
            'awesome = foo.bar.awesome:AwesomeRenderer'
