HTML::Template::JIT - a just-in-time compiler for HTML::Template
my $template = HTML::Template::JIT->new(filename => 'foo.tmpl', jit_path => '/tmp/jit', ); $template->param(banana_count => 10); print $template->output();
This module provides a just-in-time compiler for HTML::Template. The module works in two phases:
new()is called the module checks to see if it already has an up-to-date version of your template compiled. If it does it loads the compiled version and returns you a handle to call
The compiled form is saved to disk in the jit_path directory and control returns to the Load phase.
This may sound a lot like the way HTML::Template's cache mode works but there are some significant differences:
Usage is the same as normal HTML::Template usage with a few addition
new() options. The new options are:
This version is rather limited. It doesn't support the following options:
cache (all modes) associate case_sensitive print_to scalarref (and friends) arrayref (and friends) die_on_bad_params
Included files are not checked for changes when checking a compiled template for freshness.
CODE-ref params are not supported.
query() method is not supported.
It's not as fast as it could be - I'd like to see it reach somewhere around 10x faster than normal HTML::Template.
As development progresses I hope to eventually address all of these limitations.
When you find a bug, join the mailing list and tell us about it (firstname.lastname@example.org) You can join the HTML::Template mailing-list by sending a blank email to email@example.com. Of course, you can still email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) with bugs, but I reserve the right to forward bug reports to the mailing list.
When submitting bug reports, be sure to include full details, including the VERSION of the module, a test script and a test template demonstrating the problem!
