I am a beginner level Web Framework Learner and Experienced Server Side developer in Python.

I am exploring the web framework of odoo and one of the question that comes very often is that how odoo handle web templating ? I mean how odoo converts XML-tags and Templates in HTML? When search around i came to know that there are web templating libraries available in python like Jinja and Mako which can do so.But also odoo have there templating engine


So now if i want to get details of templating in odoo should i be exploring Jinja ,Mako,Gensi OR QWEB??
