PHP in Action Blog:
Testing Smarty templates
January 29, 2008 @ 08:47:00

On the PHP in Action blog today, there's a quick new post that talks about not only using the Smarty templating system but also a method for testing it to check for any kind of possible failure.

As I mentioned in my blog post on Paparrazzi testing, Uncle Bob (Robert C. Martin) has discussed how to test web templates or server pages. Since I'm currently working with Smarty templates, I wanted a simple way to run tests on them without needing to deal with a web server and the page navigation in a full web application.

Thankfully, he's found a nice, simple method for running tests against the Smarty engine (and includes that in the post - an interface to Smarty and the example test case to run against it).
