We had some very good converstations on templates tonight.
Templates we talked about:
- Smarty – No good things to say here (fat and slow)
- Flexy – Was the prefered solution of some, compiler with light weight runtime
- Savant – My prefered solution but I might not be the normal use case
I just made the last train home, and im a little pissed, so its not the time to go into details, but what makes a good template engine is a topic I would like to discuss more.
And the article by Harry that started it all: Templates and Template Engines or why do we need to make up a new language when we have PHP
