I don't think Sean is one of the authors, but the blog-post they link to
includes a link to a non-paywalled PDF hosted on the primary author's
personal website:

No, this is not related to Jinja.

In Markdown, one way to make a header is to make sure the first
character on the line is a hash (`#`). Looking at your README.md file:

$ curl -s https://git.sr.ht/~jpgleeson/piaine/blob/master/README.md |

It's on the FSF's licence list as a "GPL-compatible Free Software
