Since some people really don't like Mako, and prefer Jinja2, I decided to make the template engine modular in Nikola my static site/blog generator.
All things considered, there is very little difference on the API side:
I even ported the default theme to Jinja! And not all that much is different on the template side, either:
But hey, to each his own. Other template engines are probably easy to plug, too.
Branch up for review here in github and yes, anyone reading this who knows Jinja2 or python is welcome to review it.
