  • Ahh - I still get a warm glow when I recall the replacement of a hand-rolled templating system that I evolved over several years with Template Toolkit.

    Cleaner, leaner code - and no more maintainence for the templating code. Serious warm fuzzies.
  • Ah yes, the ol' home grown templating system. I was at OSCON 2001 and Perrin Harkins gave a 'choosing a templating system' talk. As I recall the first thing he asked us was something like "Ok, hands up, how many of you have written a templating system?". I would say about 90% of the audience raised their hand - myself included.

    I seem to remember someone saying that writing a templating system was a Perl rite of passage. I can't remember who said it or where I read it though :-)
