LightnCandy: Quick Start

Install

You may use composer to install LighcnCandy:

 composer require zordius/lightncandy:dev-master

Usage

The best practice is compile template into PHP code and save it for later use.

Source Code
// Use composer autoloader
require_once('./vendor/autoload.php');

use LightnCandy\LightnCandy;

$template = "Welcome {{name}} , You win \${{value}} dollars!!\n";
$phpStr = LightnCandy::compile($template);  // set compiled PHP code into $phpStr

// Save the compiled PHP code into a php file
file_put_contents('render.php', '<?php ' . $phpStr . '?>');

// Get the render function from the php file
$renderer = include('render.php');

// Render by different data
echo "Template is:\n$template\n";
echo $renderer(array('name' => 'John', 'value' => 10000));
echo $renderer(array('name' => 'Peter', 'value' => 1000));

Deprecated way

You can use LightnCandy::prepare($phpStr) to get the render function. This is a deprecated way and should only be used for developing or testing.

Source Code
// Use composer autoloader
require_once('./vendor/autoload.php');

use LightnCandy\LightnCandy;

$template = "Welcome {{name}} , You win \${{value}} dollars!!\n";
$phpStr = LightnCandy::compile($template);  // set compiled PHP code into $phpStr

// Quick and deprecated way to get render function
$renderer = LightnCandy::prepare($phpStr);

// Render by different data
echo "Template is:\n$template\n";
echo $renderer(array('name' => 'John', 'value' => 10000));
