{variable} – creates PHP code to echo a variable


Usage ( {variable} , {variable:h} , {variable:u} )


creates PHP code to echo a variable, with optional modifier. Modifiers are

  • No Modifier - does htmlspecialchars($variable)
  • :h - echos without any change - eg. raw
  • :u - echos urlencode($variable)

by default variables are assumed to have calling scope, and are prefixed with $t->, however if they are inside a loop (foreach), then the variables created by the loop are added to the scope and the prefix is not added.

Accessing object variables can be done using a dot as separator: {object.property}, calling methods is identical: {object.method()}.


setting an object variable

$this->a = "hello >>";

Outputting the variable


Compiled template

<?php echo htmlspecialchars($t->a); ?>
<?php echo $t->a; ?>
<?php echo urlencode($t->a); ?>

Simple ouput example

hello &gt;&gt;
hello >>
setRequired - sets the prefix of an element to a value.. (Previous) creates a PHP method call, and echos the results (Next)
