    Jinja inspired template language for Emacs Lisp

    But after you get the hang of it, you figure out that there's more potential there. I have been working on two projects that are what I'd have done in Python, or C. One is a templating language shipped as a library and the other one is a static HTML generator, also shipped as a library. They both have unit tests that run on a CI hooked up to GitHub actions, and I use a Makefile to compile `.el` to `.elc` and `emacs --script script.el` to run scripts that declare the static HTML website routes.

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
