Using PEAR HTML_Template_IT For Modular Interface Design
Simplify your PHP application design with modular interface templates.

| The Cookie-Cutter Approach |

HTML_Template_IT assumes that a single web application is made up of many smaller pieces - it calls these parts templates - and provides an API to link templates together, and to fill them with data. In HTML_Template_IT lingo, a template is simply a text file, typically containing both static HTML elements and variables. These variables are replaced with actual values at run-time; the values may be hard-coded into your PHP script, or retrieved dynamically from a database or other data source.

HTML_Template_IT also makes it possible to nest one template within another, adding a whole new level of flexibility to this template-based method of doing things. By allowing you to split a user interface into multiple smaller parts, HTML_Template_IT adds reusability to your web application, because a template can be used over and over again (even across different projects).

Before proceeding further, you should download and install a copy of the latest version of HTML_Template_IT from PEAR. The package contains the main class file, a set of test cases, and some example scripts.
