  • HTML::Template is simple, fast, stable and well documented. If its simple approach to templates works for your application, what is shameful about using it?

    • Part of it is that I keep meaning to learn Mason and TT (at least a little, so I can intelligently decide between them when I need to) but I keep reading about them and not using them. I worry I'm taking the easy route when I should be climbing a learning curve.

      There's nothing wrong with me using it, per se. I'm worried I'm using it to avoid learning other tools.


      You are what you think.

        Ahh, gotcha. I can understand that. I most commonly reach for Mason, possibly because I have used it the most. It certainly takes some discipline to maintain a clear separation between layers when you have the templating system constantly tempting you to put application logic inside the templates, but it's possible to do {grin}. -- Douglas Hunter
