SimpleTemplate PHP Template Engine (written by Michele Brodoloni <mik (dot) linux (at) gmail (dot) com>) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 23-Jun-2011 IMPORTANT NOTE: This project has been moved to sourceforge due to practical reasons. There you can find a more updated version of this class which include: - Helpers autoloading with custom options - Possibility to keep templates/helpers/etc. out of the web root - Several fixes on trunk code - An extensive example on how to use the template engine (still in development) You can checkout the whole project using SVN: svn co simple-template ------------------------------------------------------------------------ .:: INTRODUCTION ::. This is a simple template engine I wrote to accomplish the goal of separating the business logic from presentation and would like to avoid using complex template engines like Smarty. It has been inspired by the Zend_View component of the Zend Framework. Try it and let me know you what you think. .:: DEPENDENCIES ::. - PHP 5 or higher .:: FEATURES ::. - PHP code is simple to understand - PHP code uses phpDocumentor commenting style. - Light and easy to use - Template helpers support (global and per single view) - Template header and footer support - Possibility to include templates within templates - Support for template logic (as we use PHP for templating language) - No *tag-search-n-replace* overhead - Extensible and customizable (as of OOP pattern) - More... :) .:: EXAMPLES & DOCUMENTATION ::. See the attached examples files for more information. Just download the whole package and extract it into a web directory. After that, just call an exampleN.php script within you browser and have fun. About the documentation: this is my first attempt to use phpDocumentor (, and it may be incomplete and non-working, so, if you can give me hints on how to fix this, or maybe fix it for me, this would be really appreciated. .:: SUPPORT ::. If you liked this class and decided to employ it on your site/blog/webapp, you are pleased to let me know, and if you wish, you may offer me a coffee using the paypal donation button on example4.php. Thanks. If you made efforts to add features, bugfixes, complain about the uselessness of this class, or you simply want to leave a personal comment, you are welcome to write me, and explain what you have done and why.
