PHPit.net has posted a pretty positive review of one of Packt Publishing's latest offerings, "Smarty PHP Template Programming and Applications".
Smarty is one of the most popular templating systems for PHP, and it offers so much functionality that it certainly deserves its own book. Read on to learn more about this book.
This book is targeted towards two types of people: designers and developers, and it's hardly surprising that the book has been divided into a designer part and a developer part.
According to the review, the authors - Lucian Gheorghe, Hasin Hayder, Joäo Prado Maia - have put together a good, solid book on using Smarty. The seperation of the designer and developer parts also make it valuable as two books in one. There's talk of why you should use Smarty, building templates, some real-world examples, and the use of modifiers and functions.
