Template Toolkit (pt 2)

Having had a chance to read through most of the new Template Toolkit book from O’Reilly, I have to admit that it’s far more impressive than I first realised. Extra plugins and filters can be written and added into the basic templating system to provide extra functionality that doesn’t come as standard.


I’m really looking forward to being able to get experimenting with this, particularly some of the cooler things like direct dbi (database) access, image manipulation, and accessing templates directly through mod_perl with no intermediate cgi scripts to slow things down.
