Fork of Symfony's Templating component compatible with PHP 5.2+.


Symfony's Templating component is a fantastic templating library, but it's only compatible with PHP 5.3+. While 97% of PHP servers run PHP 5.2 or higher, 26% of all servers are still running PHP 5.2 or lower (source). It would be a shame to exempt this library from a quarter of the world's servers just because of a few version incompatibilities.

Differences from Symfony's Templating component

The primary difference is naming conventions of the Symfony classes. Instead of the \Symfony\Component\Templating namespace (and sub-namespaces), prefix the Symfony class names with ehough_templating and follow the PEAR naming convention

An examples of class naming conversion:

\Symfony\Component\Templating\EngineInterface      ----->    ehough_templating_EngineInterface
\Symfony\Component\Templating\Storage\FileStorage  ----->    ehough_templating_storage_FileStorage

Releases and Versioning

Releases are synchronized with the upstream Symfony repository. e.g. ehough/templating v2.3.1 has merged the code from Symfony/Templating v2.3.1.
