Wrong ReplyTo address, human error. My original reply is pasted below:

Hi Kevin,

I tried playing around with this and importing templates and I found
that we can do this:


def template_factory():
    template = grok.PageTemplateFile(os.path.join('template.pt'))
    return template()

[snip imports and Model class]

class MyView(grok.View):
    def render(self):
        return shared.template_factory()

template_factory could all sorts of useful stuff with request and
context before choosing and returning the pagetemplate.

BTW This works as per your last example:

class Index(grok.View):

index = grok.PageTemplate(Index.__doc__)

But I couldn't get any kind of combination of:

index = share.template_factory to work

including playing with template_factory method or directly calling a
page template:

template_factory = grok.PageTemplateFile(os.path.join('template.pt'))

for example.

Best regards,
