Template Decision?

Posted April 23, 2003 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Development.

I hope everyone had a pleasant and relaxing holiday weekend. The more I look at the different templating systems the more I’m leaning toward Smarty. When cached, it’s just about the fastest thing out there. It’s certainly flexible enough for pretty much anything we could want to do, and its support and community are really unmatched. Although the research has brought be full circle, I feel much better knowing that all the options have been examined. Note this is not a final decision, merely the results of my search. Besides, a new template system is at least another point release away. ;)
