Before we proceed let setup virtualenv environment:

$ virtualenv env
$ env/bin/easy_install wheezy.template

Big Table

The big table demo compares wheezy.template with other template engines in terms of how fast a table with 10 columns x 1000 rows can be generated:

    @for row in table:
        @for key, value in row.items():

Install packages used in benchmark test:

env/bin/easy_install -O2 jinja2 mako tenjin \
  tornado wheezy.html wheezy.template

Download source code and run it (Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz × 4; Kernel Linux 3.2.0-2-686-pae; Debian Testing; Python 2.7.3):

Real World

There is real world example available in wheezy.web package. It can be found in demo.template application. The application has few screens: home, sign up, sign in, etc. The content implementation is available for jinja2, mako, tenjin, wheezy.template and wheezy.template (with preprocessor).

The throughtput was captured using apache benchmark (concurrecy level 500, number of request 100K):

                    /        /en/signin    /en/signup
jinja2              9339     6422          6196
