The Template Toolkit began its life as the Text::MetaText module,
originally released to CPAN around 1996. This itself was the public
manifestation of an earlier template processing system I developed
while working at Peritas (now Knowledge Pool -
Text::MetaText was the prototype - the one we always planned to throw
away. It did the job well, showing us what worked and what didnt, what
was good and what was bad, and gave us some ideas about what could be
done better, given the chance to start again from scratch.
Some time late in 1998 I threw away the prototype and started work on the
Template Toolkit. By then I was working at Canon Research Centre Europe Ltd.
(CRE), involved in a general research programme related to web publishing and
dynamic content generation. The first alpha release was in June 1999, followed
by numerous more alpha and beta releases culminating in 1.00 being released on
2nd December 1999.
A month or so later, work had begun on version 2.00. The plan was to get the
template language relatively stable in version 1.00 and not worry too much
about performance or other internal matters. Then, version 2.00 would follow
to improve performance, clean up the architecture and fix anything that, with
the benefit of hindsight, we thought could be improved. As it happens, me
starting work on version 2.00 coincided with Doug Steinwand sending me his
parser variant which compiled templates to Perl code, giving a major
performance boost. As well as the speedups, there are a whole host of
significant new features in version 2.00, and a greatly improved internal
architecture. Apart from a few minor fixups the template directives and
language have remained the same as in version 1.00
Version 2.00 was available in beta release form in July 2000, just in time for
the 4th Perl Conference where version 1.00 was awarded Best New Perl Module.
After another extended beta release period, version 2.00 was released on 1st
Version 3 has been in development ever since.
