Extra info and code examples

Text::Xslate is a template engine, tuned for persistent applications, safe as an HTML generator, and with rich features. There are a lot of template engines in CPAN, for example Template-Toolkit, Text::MicroTemplate, HTML::Template, and so on, but all of them have some weak points: a full-featured template engine may be slow, while a fast template engine may be too simple to use. This is why Text::Xslate is developed, which is to be the best template engine for web applications. The concept of Text::Xslate is strongly influenced by Text::MicroTemplate and Template-Toolkit 2, but the central philosophy of Text::Xslate is different from them. That is, the philosophy is one of sandboxing; that the template logic should not have no access outside the template beyond your permission.
