[ #7592 ]

My brother wrote the basics of our website and I had optimized a little the job of maintaining it by creating a template with correct and indented HTML.

Now, I've added a new page that I want to be available as a link on every other page. Two choices:

  1. Edit every page adding the link (and do that for every other link in the future)
  2. Write a Template Toolkit template and recreate the pages automatically

Guess which one was my choice? Editing everything, of course! ;-) Just kidding. Moving everything to TT2. It will save me a lot of work. ;-)

God bless Perl and its tools.

  • If your nail is a webserver where you don't have a shell account,
    PHP include(""); is an easy hammer.
    • I'm more of the Perl kind of guy. :-)

      As I said, I used TT2 and moved everything in 5 minutes. Now, whenever I want to add a new box or something to every page, I just have to edit the template and it's done.

      I may also have templates that call other templates, and then differentiate what appears in every page.

      And I can have variables there.

      And the best thing: the ISP has just to support plain HTML and CSS files. No PHP, no Perl, no mod_perl, no nothing. Everything is done here and ftp'ed there.
