Hi

I am starting to work with Mako and im finding some problems. Apologies if the question is dumb

I am finding two problems. The first one, is that i can't send a list of data to mako to render it in an HTML. 

I have a list of dictionaries like this:

[{'name' : 'javi', 'country' : 'Spain'}, {'name' : 'john', 'country' : 'UK'}]


And i want to create an HTML like this:

javi - Spain
john - UK

What is the best way of doing this with Mako? As far as i know, you can't send a list as a parameter to render method in Mako, isnt it?


The second one comes after i tried to created the list as a parameter in the dictionary, something like this:

{'data' :[{'name' : 'javi', 'country' : 'Spain'}, {'name' : 'john', 'country' : 'UK'}]}

My template is as follows:

%for monster in monsters:
<H2>${monster.name}</H2>
%endfor

But then, I have this error:

AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'name'


What is the right way to access a key inside a dictionary?

Thanks

Hi, 
in first case try this way:
% for d in list_dict:
<p>${d['name']} - ${d['country']}</p>
% endfor

in second:
% for d in compl_list_dict:
<p>${d['data'][0]['name']} - ${d['data'][1]['country']}</p>
% endfor
