Official Mirror:
EmPy is a system for embedding Python expressions and statements in template text; it takes an EmPy source file, processes it, and produces output. This is accomplished via expansions, which are special signals to the EmPy system and are set off by a special prefix (by default the at sign, '@'). EmPy can expand arbitrary Python expressions and statements in this way, as well as a variety of special forms. Textual data not explicitly delimited in this way is sent unaffected to the output, allowing Python to be used in effect as a markup language. Also supported are "hook" callbacks, recording and playback via diversions, and dynamic, chainable filters. The system is highly configurable via command line options and embedded commands. This is the Python 2 version of the package. This version installs the empy executable under the name "empy"

    2015-07-22 - Steve Langasek <> empy (3.3.2-1build1) wily; urgency=medium * No-change rebuild for python3.5 transition

    2014-10-09 - Jose Luis Rivero <> empy (3.3.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release * Update patch to remove hardcoded path in doc.html * Remove patch for python3 support. It is implemented in upstream sources * Update standards version to 3.9.6, no changes required

    2014-07-21 - Jose Luis Rivero <> empy (3.3-9) unstable; urgency=medium * Make both empy versions, python2 and python3, coinstallable. The binary empy provided by python3 is now renaming under the empy3. This allow to run empy on python2 code (using empy executable) or on python3 code (using empy3 executable). (Closes: #755113).

    2014-01-16 - Ana Beatriz Guerrero Lopez <> empy (3.3-8) unstable; urgency=medium [ Jose Luis Rivero ] * Include patch to support python3. Thanks to Dirk Thomas. (Closes: #732101) * Add python3-empy: update debian/control, add manpages and dir files. * Add build depends on dh-python, python-setuptools, python3-all and python3-setuptools. * Update debian/rules: - stop calling manually and use pybuild. - replace cp command with install. [ Ana Guerrero Lopez ] * Add examples to python3-empy. * Add conflicts between python-empy and python3-empy since they both install the same binary and manpage. * Update to standards-Version 3.9.5, no changes required.

(Closes: #715297) * Remove Conflicts/Replaces, after 3 releases they are surely not needed anymore ;)

    2006-10-18 - Ana Beatriz Guerrero Lopez <> empy (3.3-6) unstable; urgency=low * Switching from python-central to python-support. * Removing debhelper from Build-Depends-Indep. * First upload as DD, yay!

    2006-06-30 - Ana Beatriz Guerrero Lopez <> empy (3.3-5) unstable; urgency=high * Adding Conflicts and Replaces fields to avoid conflicts with old version, before new python policy. (Closes: #376179).
