Template Toolkit Version 3
Andy Wardley, Canon Research Centre Europe Ltd.
Date: Thursday, July 10
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
This talk will describe the new features of version 3 of the Template
Toolkit. This release will include some significant changes to the
internal structure of the Template Toolkit. These include a new
implementation of the parser and related modules that provide a much
greater level of control over the language grammar. This should allow
the Template Toolkit to be used more effectively, not only as it
currently is as a template processing system with its own particular
mini-language (which some people love and others aren't so keen on),
but also as a component toolkit for building custom template
processing engines with different directive styles, language grammars,
configuration options, and so on. It is also hoped that this release
will provide a platform for closer integration with other templating
modules and establish better links between different template
languages rather than bigger barriers.
