With this new tutorial posted today, DevShed polishes off yet another of their design patterns series - their look at using the Templating pattern in PHP5.
Over the course of this last tutorial I'm going to provide you with a few more examples of how to build template classes with PHP 5. More specifically speaking, what you're going to learn here will be how to create a set of template objects that will control the visual appearance of data fetched from different files.
They work from the group up, starting over with the creation of the base file handling class and working their way up to the templating class. Attach a few subclasses (to generate each of the data blocks needed) and check it out in action. Their example pulls in the template, parses through it and assigns the information to the subclass functions to output different formats of the data - plain text, HTML, and XML.
