TACS v1.3.1 update – free PHP template system
written by craig, 1 August 2010
TACS is our free web site Templating and Caching System for PHP. It’s not a replacement for Smarty, but it’s far simpler and can be used by any developer within minutes.
TACS allows PHP code to be run either:
- At render time when the page is cached. Typically, a menu could be generated once so all subsequent visits return static HTML.
- At runtime when the user accesses the page, e.g. for a form submission.
The cached page therefore contains the minimum of PHP code. It allows you to use PHP as-is rather than forcing you to learn another API or syntax.
What’s more, TACS is free. Use it, abuse it, copy it, or do whatever you like with the code. We don’t mind — but a link to this website or PayPal donations are gratefully received!
TACS v1.3.1 fixes a path resolution bug and allows you to use permalink-like URLs.
