Smarty template engine for ProcessWire

Smarty Templating for ProcessWire

This module allows you to use Smarty 3 template engine in ProcessWire CMS.

Installation


Just copy both /site/modules and /site/templates folders to your /site folder. Then go to the admin panel and enable this module. In the options you can enable Smarty caching and change the cache lifetime. Upon saving, three folders should be created in your /site/assets/cache: SmartyCache, SmartyConfigs and SmartyTemplates_c. Otherwise create them and chmod them to 777.

Quick tutorial


Do not use <?php ?> tags in your templates! (despite the default *.php template extension). Instead use { } tags accordingly:

Smarty:                              PHP:
{$page->title}                       <?php echo $page->title; ?>
{$home=$pages->get("/")}             <?php $home=$pages->get("/"); ?>
{foreach $home->children as $child}  <?php foreach($home->children as $child): ?>
    <li>{$child->title}                  <li><?php echo $child->title; ?>
    {if $child->field}!!!{/if}</li>      <?php if($child->field): ?>!!!<?php endif; ?></li>
{/foreach}                           <?php endforeach; ?>
{* this is a comment *}              <?php /* this is a comment */ ?>
{include './head.inc'}               <?php include './head.inc'; ?>

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
