PythonInWebPage presentation systems (see PresentationTechnologies) encourages the use of Python source code embedded in the content of a Web page (or other resource to be presented) such that the execution of the code causes the surrounding content to be transformed in some way. A classic, simplified example of this concept using JSP syntax might look like this:
<table> <% for item in items: %> <tr> <th>Name</th> <td><%= item.name %></td> </tr> <% %> </table>
Note that Python's need for indentation raises issues with how code blocks are to be delimited, especially in content which may itself be indented according to a different scheme, hence the use of an empty code block after the body of the loop in the above example.
Comparable technologies include: ASP (Active Server Pages), JSP (JavaServer Pages), PHP.
