php template system
Posted on 2003-11-02
I am looking for a php template system to use with my application. I realize that the ideal solution would be to create my own but I am fairly new to php and I feel I would probably end up doing more harm then good performance wise so I decided to go with a 3rd party solution.
I have been looking over the various "popular" template systems like smarty,quick template,phemplate,fast template... but have yet to find one that really suits my needs which are.
1.) Simple to use (I don't want to have to deal with config files and extension classes and other bloated features a.k.a smarty_ware) I just need the basics along with database support.
2.) Fast (not much else I can say except it has to be faster then Fast Template)
3.) Has a fair amount of documentation / examples to learn from (would rather not spend 3 days trying to "guess" how the system works)
Out of all of the systems I have looked at it would appear that phemplate comes closer to meeting my needs then any of the others but there is not alot of documentation on it and I have no idea if it has database support or not so maybe if someone could just enlighten me on these things then I could use it but if not then what else could I use ???
Thanks for all replies in advance.
