FreeMarker is a template engine that was originally designed so that servlet-based applications could keep graphical design separate from application logic. The templates provide an easy and highly flexible way to generate any kind of text output (HTML, PostScript, TeX, source code, etc.) from a variety of data sources such as Java objects, Jython objects, XML object models, and more.
CodeWorker is a versatile parsing tool and a universal source code generator. It interprets a scripting language for producing reusable, tailor-made, evolving, and reliable IT systems with a high level of automation. The file formats to parse are described in an extended-BNF syntax. Template-based scripts drive the writing of patterns for generating code or text. The code generation knows how to preserve protected areas with hand-typed code and provides code expansion, source-to-source translation, and program transformation. It provides a native translation of CodeWorker's scripts in C++.
Youhp3 (Youpee's One Unlimited HTML PreProcessor) is an HTML preprocessor that allows you to embed code of any script language, as well as calling any external program to generate text files. It is specifically designed to work with HTML/XML documents, and provide traditional features, such as define, include, macro, conditional tests, and loop.
OOoPy is a Python library for modifying OpenOffice.org documents. It provides a set of transformations on the OOo XML format using the ElementTree XML Library. Transformations included are a mail merge application and the concatenation of documents with formatting intact. The framework supports easy creation of new transformations.
CamlTemplate is a library for generating text from templates in Objective Caml. It can be used to generate Web pages, scripts, SQL queries, XML documents, and other sorts of text files. It provides a versatile, easy-to-learn template syntax that supports common scripting-language constructs, while encouraging a separation between presentation logic and application logic. The supported Caml data structures accomodate lists, tables, and trees of items in a straightforward manner. CamlTemplate works well with mod_caml and mod_fastcgi, supports any ASCII-compatible encoding, including UTF-8, and includes optional support for multithreading.
Beautifier (previously known as PSH, the PHP Syntax Highlighter) highlights and indents source code using highlight configuration files which are similar to Ultraedit highlighting files. It supports C, C#, Java, Perl, PHP, Pascal, Lisp, Mumps, Eiffel, Euphoria, and x86 Assembler, amongst others. It handles line/block comments, keyword highlighting, correct indentation, string highlighting, language contexts (allowing embedded languages), and selection highlighting. It is available in PHP and Perl versions.
Absolut Engine is a PHP/MySQL framework built on the basis of a former news publishing system. It features 3 layer access, article posting, editing, and deleting. Included are a basic image and file manager as well as a related articles manager. Rich text editing is provided via a built-in WYSIWYG editor that produces XHTML 1.0 Strict compliant code. It is easy to extend via the module functionality. It is fully configurable and easy-to-use. Modules include discussions, surveys, RSS feed export and import, search engine optimization, a messaging system, weather reports, and Google Maps.
SMX is a cross-platform dynamic HTML generation language. It is a high level language that is easier to learn than PHP or Perl, but is just as powerful for Web page creation. It was originally designed for developing financial reporting software, and is still uniquely suited for that sort of customer-driven Web development. It features builtin support for ODBC queries, preformatted HTML, linking to Perl or PHP, and much more. It supports Basic authentication and Digest authentication.
JTLT is a general text based templating system that is very easy to use and powerful. It can be used for almost anything, including code generation for translators/compilers and HTML output for Java servlets. It features replaceable keys, nested block structures, an extensible macro system (even keys are implemented as macros), a separation of parsing and output generation, a separation of macro settings and parsing, in-memory caching of parsed templates, weak typing, and extensive documentation.
