'Cheetah' is a template engine and code generator that can be used as a standalone utility or combined with other tools. Web developers looking for an alternative to ASP, JSP, PHP and PSP should be its principle user group, although its template language is simple enough that non-programmers can understand it. 'Cheetah' generates HTML, SGML, XML, SQL, Postscript, form email, LaTeX, or any other text-based format. It separates content, graphic design, and program code, which leads to modular, flexible, and reusable site architectures, shorter development time, and HTML and program code that is easier to understand and maintain. It is particularly well suited for team efforts.
