| Add a review of Text-Xslate
In addition to it's overwhelming speed I'd like to point out that Text::Xslate throws largely useful error messages on screen in case something is wrong with the markup.
Secondly, the idea of cascading templates (similar to TDL - Djangos Template Language) and blocks than can be nested and overloaded really help to build a clean view in web apps: One specifies the outer tepmlate *WITHIN* the template itself, as opposed to Template Toolkit and others that want this as a redering parameter.
To sum it up: It's speedy, has great error messages and supports template inheritance.
This is THE FASTEST template engine around. My personal test results match with Sam Graham's Perl Template Roundup. I give Xslate a big thumbs up not only because of the speed but also because of the features like object oriented syntax, Perl function API and Template Toolkit migration path.
Xslate is very fast template engine, and that supports TT2-ish syntax!
Although I usually oppose reinventing the wheel, I make an exception for such suitable authors as could make a worthwhile module. This module author, Goro Fuji, is one of them. The module is extraordinarily fast, and yet the syntax of a template by means of using the module is never a burden on even the designers out of the picture.
I'd like to recommend the module for all!
