A lightweight DSL for HTML generation in PHP

Requirements

PHP >= 5.3

Code example

    <?php

    require "lib.htmlgen.php";

    $table_data = array(
      "foo" => "bar",
      "hello" => "world",
      "123" => "456",
      "abc" => "xyz"
    );

    h::set_indent_pattern("  ");

    h::html(function(){
      h::head(function(){
        h::meta(array("http-equiv"=>"Content-Type", "content"=>"text/html; charset=UTF-8"));
        h::link(array("rel"=>"stylesheet", "type"=>"text/css", "href"=>"global.css"));
      });
      h::body(function(){
        h::div(array("id"=>"wrapper"), function(){
          h::h1("Hello, World", array("class"=>"title"));

          h::comment("navigation");
          h::ul(array("class"=>"links"), function(){
            foreach(array(1,2,3) as $x)
              h::li(function() use($x){
                h::a("Link {$x}", "#{$x}");
              });
          });

          h::comment("let's see some text");
          h::p("Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit...");

          h::comment("now for a table");
          h::table(function(){

            # sadly, i'm not sure how to get around this at the moment :(  help me make this awesome
            global $table_data;

            h::tr(array("class"=>"header"), function(){
              h::th("key");
              h::th("value");
            });
            foreach($table_data as $k => $v){
              h::tr(array("class"=>h::cycle(array("odd", "even"))), function() use($k,$v){
                h::td($k);
                h::td($v);
              });
            }
          });

        });
      });
    });

    ?>

Output

<html>
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="global.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="wrapper">
      <h1 class="title">Hello, World</h1>

      <!-- navigation -->
      <ul class="links">
        <li>
          <a href="#1">Link 1</a>
        </li>
        <li>
          <a href="#2">Link 2</a>
        </li>
        <li>
          <a href="#3">Link 3</a>
        </li>
      </ul>

      <!-- let's see some text -->
      <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit...</p>

      <!-- now for a table -->
      <table>
        <tr class="header">
          <th>key</th>
          <th>value</th>
        </tr>
        <tr class="odd">
          <td>foo</td>
          <td>bar</td>
        </tr>
        <tr class="even">
          <td>hello</td>
          <td>world</td>
        </tr>
        <tr class="odd">
          <td></td>
          <td>456</td>
        </tr>
        <tr class="even">
          <td>abc</td>
          <td>xyz</td>
        </tr>
      </table>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>
