A Complete List of PHP Template Engines? – SitePoint Community Forums: A good list of templating engines for PHP.
“Conducting a small experiment. Been wondering “Just how many template engines does PHP have?”. My guess is there’s probably at least 50 Open Source template engines out there but was hoping for a more precise number. The reason why is get a feel for how many times we’ve re-invented this wheel.”
More and more, I’m seeing templating engines for Web langauges being used instead of embedded code. My experience was with Velocity for J2EE, and it was quite positive. I’ve recently been exposed to Smarty for PHP, and that good too.
