By Federico Ulfo and a lot awesome contributors!

RainTPL is an easy template engine for PHP that enables designers and developers to work better together, it loads HTML template to separate the presentation from the logic.


  • Easy for designers, only 10 tags, {$variable}, {#constant#}, {include}, {loop}, {if}, { comment }, {noparse}, {function}
  • Easy for developers, 5 methods to load and draw templates.
  • Powerful, modifier and operation with variables
  • Extensible, load plugins and register new tags
  • Secure, sandbox with blacklist.

Installation / Usage

  1. Install composer

  2. Create a composer.json inside your application folder:

        "require": {
            "rain/raintpl": ">=3.0.0"
  3. Run the following code

    $ php composer.phar install
  4. Run one example of RainTPL with your browser: http://localhost/raintpl3/example.php
