YATS ( Yet Another Templating System ) This library is a PHP C extension that provides templating facilities. This allows the web developer to cleanly separate php code (logic) from html (display). Key benefits of using this extension as compared to other php templating solutions are: 1) speed. Because it is in C, it is typically faster than implementations written in php. 2) ease of use Both the php API and the templating syntax are quite simple. 3) flexible, yet not a complete language. the templating syntax provides support for simple implicit loops and nested sections, allowing the web developer to control things to a very fine degree. However, there are no real conditional expressions or other logical constructs. There is no support for embedding php code within a template, now will there ever be as it violates the model. There is no danger of this becoming another "language within a language". 4) internationalization. (i18n, l10n) YATS >= 0.93 supports the GNU gettext library/tools and utilizes special tags to mark certain content for inclusion in the translation catalog. This allows creation of a single set of HTML templates that can be used to display your site in multiple languages. Various iterations of this code have been/are running at Epinions.com and are sufficiently fast for the high traffic volume this site encounters, with dozens of templates being processed during each http request. No specific speed claims are made. Your mileage may vary. Sample php scripts are in ./sample. The best/quickest way to learn how to use the library is just to view the source to these and load them in your browser It is the author's hope that this code will be found useful by someone, and would like to hear about how and where it is being used, or suggestions for improvement.
