HomePHP Page 9 - Web Development With PHP FastTemplate
A Rose By Any Other Name... - PHP
Typically, most PHP-based Web sites use scripts which containintermingled PHP and HTML code. While this speeds up development, it alsohas a downside: an interface designer cannot modify page layouts or HTMLtemplates without the assistance of an experienced PHP developer. Well,there's a solution to the problem - and you'll be surprised to hear thatit's been around for quite a while. Say hello to PHP FastTemplate.
In this case, I've altered three of the templates to remove the tables and
list constructs, so that I'm left with a very simple and elegant layout.
As you can see, FastTemplate makes it possible to separate the user interface from the program logic, thereby allowing designers with little or no programming knowledge to alter Web pages quickly and easily. Further - with its ability to nest and repeat chunks of HTML code, it can speed up development time significantly, and also reduce the effort involved in maintaining and modifying a Web application.
That's about it from me. In case you're looking for more information, you should consider visiting the following links:
