1.4 Give me an example!

Here's a very simple example that illustrates some of Cheetah's basic syntax:

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>$title</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>

<TABLE>
#for $client in $clients
<TR>
<TD>$client.surname, $client.firstname</TD>
<TD><A HREF="mailto:$client.email">$client.email</A></TD>
</TR>
#end for
</TABLE>

</BODY>
</HTML>

Compare this with PSP:

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE><%=title%></TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>

<TABLE>
<% for client in clients: %>
<TR>
<TD><%=client['surname']%>, <%=client['firstname']%></TD>
<TD><A HREF="mailto:<%=client['email']%>"><%=client['email']%></A></TD>
</TR>
<%end%>
</TABLE>

</BODY>
</HTML>

Section 3.7 has a more typical example that shows how to get the plug-in values into Cheetah, and section 4.2 explains how to turn your template definition into an object-oriented Python module.
