Smarty is a template engine for PHP, facilitating the separation of presentation (HTML/CSS) from application logic. This implies that PHP code is application logic, and is separated from the presentation. The Smarty design was largely driven by these goals: * clean separation of presentation from application code * PHP backend, Smarty template frontend * compliment PHP, not replace it * fast development/deployment for programmers and designers * quick and easy to maintain * syntax easy to understand, no PHP knowledge required * flexibility for custom development * security: insulation from PHP * free, open sourceVisit publisher site: Smarty

I love it, use it all the time
Great tool! It's so popular that shifting platforms is not an issue any longer, chances are you'd stumble upon a good script/platform that uses Smarty.
Smarty is just Great! Has all those cool features! I use it & I'm happy with it! Can't wait V3.
If you are dumb enough to add another language on top of PHP/MySQL/HTML/CSS/Javasc ript then you're dumb enough to use Smarty. If you see a script that uses this template crap, run, run, run and tell the author they're stupid.
I have been using Smarty for years now. It's an amazing product. It can take a bit of getting used to, but the rewards of doing so are HUGE. I operate a number of profitable sites that wouldn't be as scalable as they are without Smarty. I have not found a better way to separate content from logic in a PHP application. For those who think it's easier to just sprinkle your HTML into your PHP... you're right, but here's hoping that you're the only one that will ever alter your application.
