Issue #111 new

mention defs can return data / better buffering explanation

created an issue

Today I (finally) got how "buffering" works.

I think documentation could do better at explaining how this things work behind mako scenes.

First of all, all ${ call_some_function() } *should* be changed to <% call_some_function() %> for sake of understanding.

Secondly, it would be wise to mention that defs can return values. Example:

<%def name="hello_world()"> hello world <% return True %> <%/dev>

<% success = hello_world() also renders the body because of buffering %>

that's my two cents:)
