Hi all, any plans for circumflex to add support for velocity?

Greetings,

Not in the framework itself (we are pretty happy with Freemarker, and unless you have specific reasons to stay with Velocity, I would recommend you to migrate).

However, I see no difficulties implementing the supporting component right inside the application. Let me know if you need any help with the one.

Both template engines are quite good and the only reason that I want to
integrate with velocity is that the project I am working on is already
using velocity. We use springmvc for java and now I am integrating
circumflex. Having 2 web frameworks is not optimal but if on top of that
I add 2 template engines it will probably be overkill. My plan is to use
circumflex with velocity and I am already working on a velocity layer to
work with scala.

I am on it, extending velocity to see scala collections & properties.
