What about HTML::Template?
This is one of those questions that I would give 10 upvotes to if I could. You would think that since I wrote this node giving high praise to HTML::Template that I would have looked at iit harder before embarking on my glory run with HTML::Seamstress

What happened is I read perrin's seminal article on template system comparisons and ran across on called HTML_Tree, which at the time was on CPAN. But he removed his module from CPAN so I wrote an equivalent which was an improvement over it (as I saw it) in a number of ways.

Now, I plan to drop my HTML::Seamstress project and join the HTML::Template camp... I guess I opted for the vi of template systems even though I use Perl and Emacs, which are the swiss-army chainsaws in their respective classes... heheh.

But for the record, seamstress could compile it's template to executable perl programs. Also, seamstress methods are closer tied to HTML::TreeBuilder and HTML::Element so that HTML manipulations were programmatic and structural as opposed to string-based.

Also, I intentionally left out an include statement, so that this would be forced on HomeSite, Dreamweaver, what have you.

But you just have to do things slightly different with HTML::Template. But I feel that HTML::Template does offer what Seamstress offers albeit with a slightly different API. But given it's maturity (my god, the caching features!) and popularity it is best to join that school and continue the war again Template and Mason et al.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
