lua-CodeGen : a template engine
lua-CodeGen is a "safe" template engine.
lua-CodeGen enforces a strict Model-View separation. Only 4 primitives are supplied :
- attribute reference,
- template include,
- conditional include
- and template application (i.e., map operation).
lua-CodeGen allows to split template in small chunk, and encourages the reuse of them by inheritance.
Each chunk of template is like a rule of a grammar for an unparser generator.
lua-CodeGen is not dedicated to HTML, it could generate any kind of textual code.
