Tenjin - Fast templating engine with support for embedded Perl.
=head1 SYNOPSIS
use Tenjin;
$Tenjin::USE_STRICT = 1; # use strict in the embedded Perl inside
# your templates. Recommended, but not used
# by default.
$Tenjin::ENCODING = "UTF-8"; # set the encoding of your template files
# to UTF-8. This is the default encoding used
# so there's no need to do this if your
# templates really are UTF-8.
my $engine = Tenjin->new(\%options);
my $context = { title => 'Tenjin Example', items => [qw/AAA BBB CCC/] };
my $filename = 'file.html';

=head1 DESCRIPTION
Tenjin is a very fast and full-featured templating engine, implemented in
several programming languages, among them Perl.
The Perl version of Tenjin supports embedded Perl code, nestable layout template,
inclusion of other templates inside a template, capturing parts of or the entire
template output, file and memory caching, template arguments and preprocessing.
The original version of Tenjin is developed by Makoto Kuwata. This CPAN
version is developed by Ido Perlmuter and differs from the original in a
few key aspects:
=over
=item * Code is entirely revised, packages are separated into modules, with
a smaller number of packages than the original version. In particular, the
Tenjin::Engine module no longer exists, and is now instead just the Tenjin
module (i.e. this one).
=item * Support for rendering templates from non-file sources (such as
a database) is added.
=item * Ability to set the encoding of your templates is added (Tenjin will decode
template files according to this encoding; by default, Tenjin will decode
=item * HTML is encoded and decoded using the L<HTML::Entities> module,
instead of internally.
=item * The C<pltenjin> script is not provided, at least for now.
=back
To make it clear, the CPAN version of Tenjin might find itself diverting
a bit in the future from the original Tenjin's roadmap. Although my aim
is to be as compatible as possible (and this version is always updated
with features and changes from the original), I cannot guarantee it (but I'll
do my best). Please note that version 0.05 (and above) of this module is
NOT backwards compatible with previous versions.
=head2 A NOTE ABOUT ENCODING
When Tenjin opens template files, it will automatically decode their contents
according to the selected encoding (UTF-8 by default), so make sure your template
files are properly encoded. Tenjin also writes cache files of compiled template
structure. These will be automatically encoded according to the selected encoding.
When it comes to UTF-8, it might interest you to know how Tenjin behaves:
=over
=item 1. "UTF-8" is the default encoding used. If for some reason, either before
running C<< Tenjin->new() >> or during, you provide an alternate spelling (such
as "utf8" or "UTF8"), Tenjin will convert it to UTF-8.
=item 2. When reading files, Tenjin uses "<:encoding(UTF-8)", while when writing
files, Tenjin uses ">:utf8", as recommended by L<this article|https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikibooks/en/w/index.php?title=Perl_Programming/Unicode_UTF-8&oldid=2020796>.
=back
=head1 METHODS
=head2 new( \%options )
This creates a new instant of Tenjin. C<\%options> is a hash-ref
containing Tenjin's configuration options:
=over
=item * B<path> - Array-ref of filesystem paths where templates will be searched
=item * B<prefix> - A string that will be automatically prepended to template names
when searching for them in the path. Empty by default.
=item * B<postfix> - The default extension to be automtically appended to template names
when searching for them in the path. Don't forget to include the
dot, such as '.html'. Empty by default.
=item * B<cache> - If set to 1 (the default), compiled templates will be cached on the
filesystem (this means the template's code will be cached, not the completed rendered
output).
=item * B<preprocess> - Enable template preprocessing (turned off by default). Only
use if you're actually using any preprocessed Perl code in your templates.
=item * B<layout> - Name of a layout template that can be optionally used. If set,
templates will be automatically inserted into the layout template,
in the location where you use C<[== $_content ==]>.
=item * B<strict> - Another way to make Tenjin use strict on embedded Perl code (turned
off by default).
=item * B<encoding> - Another way to set the encoding of your template files (set to "UTF-8"
by default).

=head2 render( $tmpl_name, [\%_context, $use_layout] )
Renders a template whose name is identified by C<$tmpl_name>. Remember that a prefix
and a postfix might be added if they where set when creating the Tenjin instance.
C<$_context> is a hash-ref containing the variables that will be available for usage inside
the templates. So, for example, if your C<\%_context> is C<< { message => 'Hi there' } >>, then you can use C<$message> inside your templates.
C<$use_layout> is a flag denoting whether or not to render this template into a layout
template (when doing so, the template will be rendered, then the rendered output will be
added to the context hash-ref as '_content', and finally the layout template will be rendered with the revised context and returned.
If C<$use_layout> is 1 (which is the default in case it is undefined),
then Tenjin will use the layout template that was set when creating the
Tenjin instance (via the 'layout' configuration option). If you want to use a different layout template (or if you haven't defined a layout
template when creating the Tenjin instance), then you must add the layout template's name
to the context as '_layout'. You can also just pass the layout template's name as C<$use_layout>, but C<< $_context->{_layout} >> has precedence.
If C<$use_layout> is 0, then a layout template will not be used,
even if C<< $_context->{_layout} >> is defined.
Note that you can nest layout templates as much as you like, but the only
way to do so is by setting the layout template for each template in the
nesting chain with C<< $_context->{_layout} >>.
Please note that by default file templates are cached on disk (with a '.cache') extension.
Tenjin automatically deprecates these cache files every 10 seconds. If you
find this value is too low, you can override the C<$Tenjin::TIMESTAMP_INTERVAL>
variable with your preferred value.

=head2 register_template( $template_name, $template )
Receives the name of a template and its L<Tenjin::Template> object
and stores it in memory for usage by the engine. This is useful if you
need to use templates that are not stored on the file system, for example
from a database.
Note, however, that you need to pass a template object who's already been
converted and compiled into Perl code, so if you have a template with a
certain name and certain text, these are the steps you will need to perform:
# create a Tenjin instance
my $tenjin = Tenjin->new(\%options);
# create an empty template object
my $template = Tenjin::Template->new();
# compile template content into Perl code
$template->convert($tmpl_content);
$template->compile();
# register the template with the Tenjin instance

Receives the name of a template and the context object and tries to find
that template in the engine's memory. If it's not there, it will try to find
it in the file system (the cache file might be loaded, if present). Returns
the template's L<Tenjin::Template> object.

Receives a template name and returns the proper file name to be searched
in the file system, which will only be different than C<$template_name>
if it begins with ':', in which case the prefix and postfix configuration
options will be appended and prepended to the template name (minus the ':'),
respectively.

=head1 CHANGES
Version 0.05 of this module broke backwards compatibility with previous versions.
In particular, the Tenjin::Engine module does not exist any more and is
instead integrated into this one. Templates are also rendered entirely
different (as per changes in the original tenjin) which provides much
faster rendering.
Upon upgrading to versions 0.05 and above, you MUST perform the following changes
for your applications (or, if you're using Catalyst, you must also upgrade
L<Catalyst::View::Tenjin>):
=over
=item * C<use Tenjin> as your normally would, but to get an instance
of Tenjin you must call C<< Tenjin->new() >> instead of the old method
of calling C<< Tenjin::Engine->new() >>.
=item * Remove all your templates cache files (they are the '.cache' files
in your template directories), they are not compatible with the new
templates structure and WILL cause your application to fail if present.
=back
Version 0.06 (this version) restored the layout template feature which was
accidentaly missing in version 0.05, and the ability to call the utility
methods of L<Tenjin::Util> natively inside templates. You will want to
remove your templates' .cache files when upgrading to 0.6 too.
