Filters, modifiers, and many others
Template engines have built-in features which allow handling popular scenarios easily. If you want to truncate text, format a string or date, set default values and many others, it is all trivial.
Developers and designers have to work together. Complex projects need many people and experienced specialists. Developers and designers need their own areas in the project to work better.
Separation between Model, View, and Controller is required by the design pattern, however developers and designer still need to work on their common code. And the template file is the best place for such collaboration.
How We Do it?
- Smarty web templates enable your application code separate from the presentation code, and this leads to giving your application code easier to maintain and it thus becomes lighter.
- These templates enable easy understanding code and make it quicker to manage to fix the error.
- one of the best pros of this template engine is it helps in preventing your presentation code from allowing a security commit a breach.
- in context to caches, smart template engine caches the output of your website which saves time on a presentation the code each time the page is view.
- Some of the functions of these smarty web templates are great but some areas of PHP functions because PHP can’t be used directly in a template.
- Smarty results in a misunderstanding of presentation code sometimes, primarily it depends on developer/coder who is developing the project.
