Tuxedo is a template language for Swift. It allows you to separate the UI and rendering layer of your application from the business logic. Smart templates working with raw data allow the frontend to be handled and developed separately from other parts of the application, so processing, layouting and formatting your output can be defined in very simple template formats.
Why the name? It dresses up your static output with elegant dynamic templates, using control statements, and high level operators.
The project was built upon my lightweight interpreter framework, Eval, and served as an example application of what is possible using this evaluator. Soon, the template language example turned out to be a really useful project on its own, so I extracted it to live as a separate library and be used by as many projects as possible. I see the possibility of applications most valuable especially in server-side Swift projects, but there are a lot of other areas where template parsing fits well.
