Templum v0.2.0: Simple PHP Templating

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

I just released v0.2.0 of Templum, a simple templating engine for PHP.


From the homepage:

Templum is an extremely lightweight, simple yet powerful and fast templating engine for PHP. It re-uses the power of PHP itself for rendering templates, but provides additional features making it easier to write templating code. Rendering templates using Templum is very fast; it approximates native PHP rendering speed for include() statements.


Changes in this release:

  • PHP 4 support added (patch by Pierre Jochem).
  • Bugfix (#1): {{$var}} at end-of-line eats newline following it.
  • Various examples added.
  • Added the ability to turn off automatic escaping using htmlentities().
  • Improved the error reporting.
  • The locale can now be changed after creating a Templum instance.
  • Userguide updated.

This release is backwards compatible with the previous version 0.1.0.


You can install Templum v0.2.0 using PEAR:

pear install http://templum.electricmonk.nl/releases/templum-0.2.0.tgz

If you’ve got a previous version of Templum installed, you must first uninstall that one:

pear uninstall channel://__uri/templum-0.1.0

There’s also a non-PEAR tar.gz which also contains examples and the API documentation and Userguide:
