  • The reason I generally dislike template systems like Template Toolkit, is that they have their own invented programming language, reimplementing programming constructs that are already implemented by the Perl language. It's kind of like Esperanto (I don't want to start a troll), I just personally feel it's unnatural.

    On the other hand, it's important to separate the template from the business logic, and the template often has to be simple enough for non-programmers to use.

    So maybe you're right. Let's get rid of templating languages. :) Why are we still writing things at such a low level, anyway? Templates, meh.
