How to minimize the amount of "{" and "}" in template?

How to minimize the amount of "{" and "}" in template?

Tuesday 15 July 2008 7:51:17 am - 3 replies

I find this is really inconvenient. For example, that every time I need use "if", I need use {if ...} ... {/if}, even when I was in the { }:
Is there a way to use the following format?

  {def $variable = "hello"
      if  condition

Right now, I must break the previous template language tag use "}" then use the {if}..

  {def $variable = "hello"
      {if  condition}

This is really not very comfortable.

Could you please explain how can that be so inconvenient?

Also, keep in mind that your code will significantly differ from what other developers are used to. This may be a reason enough not to break the conventions.

This is not possible with eZ Publish template language and eZ Template component as well.

Yes i understand where you are coming from. But i haven't seen any other way of doing it.

It's kind of a tag based language, so coming from ColdFusion you may find it easier than say PHP.

At least it's neater than this...

  <cfif cgi.Remote_Addr DOES NOT CONTAIN "192.168.32.">
    Your Code

So glad i don't use ColdFusion anymore, it feels like writing a book!
