A Django template is a text document or a Python string marked-up using the Django template language. Django being a powerful Batteries included framework provides convenience to rendering data in a template. Django templates not only allow passing data from view to the template but also provide some limited features of programming such as variables, for loops, comments, etc.

{% endcomment %}


{% comment "Optional note" %}
    Commented out text with {{ create_date|date:"c" }}
{% endcomment %}
