NAME ^

Template::TAL::Provider - Base class for TAL template providers

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $provider = $provider_class->new;
  my $ttt = $provider_class->get_template("foo");

DESCRIPTION ^

TAL Templates come from Providers. You ask an instance of a provider for a template with a specific name, and it should return a Template::TAL::Template object to you for that template.

This module is the base class of all providers - it should be subclassed by developers who wish to write their own provider - for instance, to serve templates from a database.

SUBCLASSING ^

The only method you need to implement is get_template, which must return either a Template::TAL::Template object, or undef. If you want to do any module initialisation, override new(). See Template::TAL::Provider::Disk for the simple provider that ships with Template::TAL.

METHODS ^

new()

creates a new provider

get_template( template name )

Should return a Template::TAL::Template object with the given name, or die if there is no such template.
