Templates are a widespread way to define the format of the output of a page.

Inside each template file, you have marks that you will replace with template parameter values.

Usually, you can set the template parameters using code that calls a template engine component.

This package provides an alternative for processing templates. It can read the template parameters from files that define the parameter values in the JSON format.
