Developer News running Smarty template engine

onokazu  23-Aug-2002 00:04  12365 reads  0
We have just upgraded our site to the latest development version (CVS + Smarty). We are now using Smarty template engine as the new theme system. Now, what is Smarty, and what would be the benefit for us users and developers?

Quoted from

Smarty is a template engine for PHP. More specifically, it facilitates a managable way to separate application logic and content from its presentation. This is best described in a situation where the application programmer and the template designer play different roles, or in most cases are not the same person.

In short, with Smarty, designers can have total control over application presentation by just modifying template files, and module developers would only need to concentrate on application logic and passing variables to those template files.

For example, our old 'phpkaox' theme file looked like this:

Module/Theme authors please read! :o)

To make classifying & reognizing files easier for everyone, it's strongly suggested that module & theme authors adapt their way of naming files.

By looking at a file, one should know right away what kind of file it is (module, theme, block, hack), the version of xoops it works with, and the revision of the file itself.

Is the suggested convention.

A file compatible with both RC2 & RC3 could be named something like:

(Meaning its a theme compatible with rc2 or higher)

Compressed archives should also contain the needed directory structure to make installing things easier.

I.E. A module would be named like above, and inside the archive, the directory structure would be:


a theme on the other hand would look like:

Like this, as soon as the person unzips the file, he knows exactly where the files should go.

I really hope all adapt this new naming convention. As it will make things much cleaner and easier for all.

Cheers & Thanks!

CVS Repository up

It's finally here! All of xoops has been tranfered to CVS.

You may grab the latest CVS files from anonymous CVS by using a program like WinCVS or TortoiseCVS (easy to use) and the following login information:

Server Type: pserver
User Name: anonymous
Password: n/a
Path: /cvsroot/xoops

Or you may directly browse the CVS tree with your navigator by pointing your browser here.

If you're the impatient kind who wishes to apply bugfixes before the whole world, just keep an eye on the changelog files which can be found here: CHANGELOG. Hack at your own risk :o)

Cheers, n best wishes from the DEV Team!
