The goal of the MiniTPL template engine is to provide a miniature framework which allows you to rapidly create and consume Smarty-like templates without adding the overhead of Smarty to your choice of a PHP framework.

In benchmarks the speed of Mini TPL is very close to PHP itself. All that is usually needed for Mini TPL is a 3KB PHP code overhead. So it beats Smarty, and usual PHP vsprintf and str_replace functionality.

With a total size of about 13KB and the functionality contained, this is one of the smallest full featured template engines for PHP to date.

MiniTPL is available on packagist as monotek/minitpl.

To start using MiniTPL in your project with composer, create a composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "monotek/minitpl": ">=1.0"

And run composer install. You can start using MiniTPL right away.



$tpl = new Monotek\MiniTPL\Template;



The project tries to maintain 100% code coverage. You can verify this by running phpunit --coverage-text, or uncommenting the logging section within phpunit.xml.
