On the AxisVista blog, there's a new tutorial looking at the creation of a PHP5 DOM-based templating engine that makes it easier for designers to work with a site and not have to know PHP to do so.
At the office today, I had a talk with our designers, so they want a "designer-friendly" template engine. Sounds easy, but it isn't. That is why I decided to write this very short post to help others having such "easy" problems.
First he lays out the requirements for the project, then heads off to Google to see if there's anything similar. He found PRADO but it still lacked some of what he needed. So, deciding on developing his own Templating system, he creates a system that supports:
- WYSIWYG & Dynamic Tag Handlers
- PHP Tags
