April Meetup: The Grantlee Template System

Dear C++ Community,

our April meetup will be hosted by Ableton. Contrary to out usual habit the talk will start at 19:00h sharp this time, since we have to be out at 21:00h. Ableton can host max 60 people seated. So, RSVP as soon as possible. There will be some drinks.

Our meetups run under the Berlin Code of Conduct

Stephen Kelly will talk about The Grantlee Template System.



The Grantlee Template System is a implemention of the Django Template System in Qt. The intent of the system is to encourage a clean separation of application and presentation logic, and to take the presentation of information out of the hands of developers and into the hands of artists.

Programmers still often write code with C++ for loops, and C++ if conditions,concatenating C++ std::strings to create some output.  The output can be for display, it can be generated code to feed into another tool, emails to send out to multiple different people etc.  Use of C++ code to create such content is inflexible, so a well-designed DSL can reduce the update cycle and enable different tools and skill sets.

This talk will examine the status quo of text template systems for C++, and focus on what Grantlee can offer programmers and users in Qt applications.

    Hey there! We're looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow in our Ableton Canteen!

    Since the room is only available until 9pm, please remember that the talk will already start at *7pm* so we have enough time for discussion, chats and drinks afterwards.

    If you need a recommendation for grabbing dinner before/after the meetup near the office, here is our home-made lunch recommendation web app:
    (Some restaurants/inns may be closed in the evening though, please mind the opening hours.)

    Bis morgen!
