Smarty is a template engine for PHP, facilitating the separation of presentation (HTML/CSS) from application logic. This implies that PHP code is application logic, and is separated from the presentation. The Smarty design was largely driven by these goals: clean separation of presentation from application code; a PHP backend and Smarty template frontend; compliment PHP, not replace it; fast development/deployment for programmers and designers; quick and easy to maintain; a syntax that is easy to understand, with no PHP knowledge required; flexibility for custom development; and security (insulation from PHP).
TinyButStrong is a template class for PHP that allows you to generate XML/HTML pages and any other files based on text source. The engine gives facilities to work with any databases, including in native PDO, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, PHP arrays, and more. It is possible to design templates using any visual editor (like Dreamweaver or FrontPage), and thus to make templates that are compatible with W3C standards for example. It features simple block management, useful display formats, conditional displaying for blocks and locators, remote XML/HTML attribute modification, a cache system, and the ability to include sub-templates and execute associated scripts. Plug-ins are supported since version 3.0.
OpenTBS is a PHP tool that helps you to make OpenOffice and MS Office documents using templates. You first design your template using OpenOffice or MS Office, and then OpenTBS merges it with data that you supply from PHP code and databases. It has facilities to manage pictures. The resulting documents are saved to file, served for download, or returned as a string. In fact, OpenTBS can merge any OpenDocument files, any OpenXML files, and any XML files compressed in a Zip archive. No extra exe file is required and it makes no temporary files, since all work is done in memory. OpenTBS is based on the TinyButStrong template engine.
DooPHP is a very fast PHP framework. It enables developers at all levels to rapidly develop robust Web 2.0 applications. It is quite feature rich. DooPHP supports some common stuff found in a Web framework, such as an MVC-base structure, RESTful APIS, a REST client, URI routing, database ORM tools, a model generator, HTTP Digest Authentication, a flexbible compiling template engine, logging and profiling tools, and more.
Snippetory is a general Java template engine based on passive templates. In passive templates, template code and logic are clearly separated from each other. The templates contains very simple mark up. By removing logic, templates are directly accessible, fully parametrized, and free of context, and can easily be reused. Navigation, code competition, and structuring of the code with methods and classes are supported.
Jenner is a Web page templating system with a twist: it runs completely within a Web browser. Templates are just normal Web pages with special syntax inside text nodes, attributes, or comments. Unlike other in-browser templating systems, Jenner does not require overloading of "class" attributes or invalid HTML; all Jenner templates are valid Web pages and the template expressions flow in a very natural way. Having the template engine in the Web browser instead of on the server takes a lot of load off of the server, and makes for a clean separation of presentation and content. Jenner is very powerful: it has the full power of the Esel expression language at its disposal. Templates can be rendered from JSON data, and can be re-rendered without a browser-to-server round trip.
Succinct is a minimal templating engine designed for concurrency and efficiency. It has an especially abstract data model, allowing you to back your templates by fetching template data on-demand, during render-time, according to your own complex synchronization protocols. It comes with lots of tools to help you make your data "templatable."
